Food on Fridays with AnnWe need to “defrost” the deep freeze (read: melt away the massive hunks of snowy-looking ice attached to the interior walls).In order to defrost the deep freeze, we need to clear it out.In order to clear it out, we need to eat the food that’s in it.So we’re digging around trying to get creative with the things I’ve stashed in there over time.This morning I found a roll of sugar cookie dough (so much for cooking from scratch) and decided to make something that I’d seen before. I don’t know the official name of this treat, so I’m calling them “Sugar Cookie Cups.”This is how they turned out:This is how I made them:

  1. Plop a blob of sugar cookie dough (or cut a thick “slice” into fourths or halves?) into mini muffin tins.
  2. Bake for about 10 minutes. Maybe 12. I can’t remember.
  3. When they are kind of brown around the edges, pull them out. Try not to squish the edges of the cookies with the oven mitt like I did.
  4. Stuff something chocolate-y into the center when they’re still hot (could be mini Reese’s cups or kisses leftover from Easter). I shoved into the dough pieces of Hershey’s bar broken in half.
  5. Watch the chocolate pieces get gooey.
  6. Dig the Sugar Cookie Cups out of the muffin tins.
  7. Pour a glass of milk to wash them down, because these babies are rich.

    1. A tiny bit too rich looking for me but I am glad you were able to remove a few things from your freezer! That’s always a great feeling!

    2. Your cookie creation looks yummy!It is wonderful when inspiration hits and you get a winner!

      I posted some frugal food tips.

    3. What a fantastic idea – they look scrumptious. It’s always hard using up those last few things from the freezer but you sure are finding delicious ways to do it!

    4. This is fun! What a creative idea :)

    5. I love the chocolate squares in the middle. This sounds so good and an easy way to use up cookie dough without having to make millions of tiny cookies.

      Yum! Those look awesome, and I bet my daughter would love making them together. :)

    7. Those pesky oven mitts are always getting in the way like that! We have to defrost our deep freeze to – a few things are actually frozen in the ice!



    8. My kids would gobble these up!

    9. Those look sinfully delicious!

    11. MMmm! These cookies look really yummy! I’m going to have to pick up some cookie dough this weekend! There goes the diet! :)

      I always smoosh the edges of the cookies with the oven mitt too!

    12. These look delish! Will definitely have to try them!

    13. Oh, yummm! They look delicious!

    14. I love using store-bought cookie dough for creations like this. Possibilities are endless!

    15. The smell of cookies and childhood memories …Ann your blog is changing me into a cook!
