Ghost Cookie Cups

Raven Higheagle


Halloween is my all time favorite holiday, and it will be here sooner than you think.
I decided on my costume a couple days ago, started making it, and am currently procrastinating finishing it. I need to get a couple more materials and just haven’t gone to the store…
Speaking of procrastination… this recipe is perfect if you’ve put off making treats for a Halloween event. There are only 6 ingredients and minimal time required. And this dessert is dressed to impress!
I mean, how cute are these little guys?!

How to Make Ghost Cookie Cups


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
    Prepare the sugar cookie mix according to the package directions.
  2. I used a Betty Crocker mix and combined 1 egg, 1 stick of butter, and 1 tablespoon flour.
  3. Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray.
  4. Roll out the sugar cookie mix and using a circle cookie cutter that is about 1 inch in diameter, cut out mini circles.
  5. Place the circles in the mini muffin tin and push into the shape of a small cup.
  6. Place the muffin tin into the oven and cook for about 5-7 minutes.
  7. When the cookies come out, push down the centers of each cookie with the backside of a teaspoon measuring spoon.
  8. Pull out the cookies and let them cool on a baking rack.
  9. Fill a small Ziploc bag with the frosting and cut off the tip.
  10. When the cookies are cooled, pipe the frosting inside the mini cookie and circle the frosting to make a ghost shape.
  11. Place two mini chocolate chips into the frosting to create eyes
