Cranberry & Nut Sugar Cookie Cups

  • Author: Sweet Loren’s
  • Prep Time: 20 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 Minutes
  • Total Time: 45 Minutes
  • Yield: 24 servings 1x
  • Category: Dessert
  • Diet: Gluten Free

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 package Sweet Loren’s Sugar Cookie Dough
  • ½ cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup chopped pistachios
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries
  • ⅓ cup chopped pecans
  • 34 tablespoons honey
  • ½ cup melted white chocolate chips, optional

Instructions

  1.  Preheat oven to 325F and thaw cookie dough at room temperature so it becomes soft to touch.
  2.  Fill a 24-count mini cupcake pan with mini muffin liners. You can skip this step if using a silicone pan. 
  3.  Break each cookie portion into 2 pieces and press one piece into the bottom and sides of each muffin tin. Repeat with remaining cookie dough until all 24 muffin spaces are filled with dough.
  4.  Bake for 8-12 minutes until cookies have risen and edges are lightly golden. The cookies should be fully cooked at this point since they won’t be returning to the oven.
  5.  Cool pan for at least 15 minutes. If the sides of each cookie aren’t flat, press down lightly with the back of a spoon.
  6.  Next, melt the chocolate with coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl in 20 second intervals, stirring in between each microwaving period, until melted.
  7.  Dip the top of each sugar cookie cup into the melted chocolate and place on a plate. Then, place the plate of cookie cups in the fridge to set the chocolate.
  8.  In a medium bowl, mix together the pistachios, dried cranberries and pecans. Drizzle over the honey and mix again.
  9.  Spoon the nut-cranberry mixture into each cookie cup, until it reaches the top.
  10.  Optionally, drizzle melted white chocolate over each cookie cup.
  11.  Store the cookie cups in the fridge until ready to serve. Enjoy!
