Total time: 1 hour
Prep time: 25 minutes
Bake time: 15 minutes
12 Servings
  • 1/2 package Sweet Loren’s Sugar Cookie Dough
  • 3/4 cup your favorite buttercream/frosting
  • 3 drops green food coloring
  • 1/4 cup green sprinkles
  • 1 box small mint chocolate eggs
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F and let Sweet Loren’s Sugar Cookie Dough come to room temperature so it becomes soft to touch.
  2. Grease mini muffin tins with cooking spray or oil of choice.
  3. Press ½ portion cookie dough into each muffin cavity and press along the sides of the pan to form a cup shape. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes until cookies have risen into cookie cups and edges are lightly golden.
  5. Cool pan on a wire baking rack for at least 20 minutes. Don’t remove the cookie nests from the pan until completely cooled.
  6. Fill each cookie nest with enough frosting to reach the top, about ½ to 1 tablespoon icing.
  7. Press the sprinkles into the top of the icing, until the icing is fully covered.
  8. Decorate the top of the cookie cups by pressing in three chocolate eggs. Enjoy! View photo
