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

  • 4Roll out the sugar cookie mix and using a circle cookie cutter that is about 1 inch in diameter, cut out mini circles.
  • 5Place the circles in the mini muffin tin and push into the shape of a small cup.
  • 6Place the muffin tin into the oven and cook for about 5-7 minutes.
  • 7When the cookies come out, push down the centers of each cookie with the backside of a teaspoon measuring spoon.
  • 8Pull out the cookies and let them cool on a baking rack.
  • 9Fill a small Ziploc bag with the frosting and cut off the tip.
  • 10When the cookies are cooled, pipe the frosting inside the mini cookie and circle the frosting to make a ghost shape.
