Sugar Cookie Frosting Cups

These are a total fan favorite of my little guys, and can’t you see why?  Sprinkled sugar cookies, colorful frosting, and sprinkles on top.  A little kid’s dream!  And maybe one of my favorites, too. 🙂


1- 17.5 oz sugar cookie mix

Butter and egg called for on cookie mix pouch

1/4 cup red and green sprinkles, more for topping

1 container vanilla frosting

1 1/2 teaspoons red gel food color


Heat oven at 375 degrees.  Grease muffin tin and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix cookie mix, softened butter and egg until dough forms.  Stir in 1/4 cup sprinkles,  

Shape into 12- 1″ balls.  Place in muffin cups.  Press indentation in center of each with the end of a wooden spoon.

Bake 8-10 minutes until light golden brown.  Immediately repeat the indentation into center of each cookie with the end of a wooden spoon.  Cool in pan for 20 minutes.  Loosen the edges with a small knife and remove to a cooling rack.  Cool completely.

In a small bowl, place the frosting.  Tint with red food coloring.  Fill a large piping bag fitted with a medium star tip with colored frosting.  Pipe in about 2 heaping teaspoons per cookie cup.

Sprinkle with remaining 2 teaspoons of sprinkles.
