The reason I have questioned Patriotic, is when you look at the picture above, you can see the red, white and blue,right? And here was my plan…half of the cookies were going to have blue frosting with red sprinkles and the other half were going to have red frosting with blue sprinkles. However, I bought white frosting with the plan to just use food coloring and wahlah, right? Nope…didn’t happen. I should have just bought some blue and some red frosting. See below….
See…those don’t look red ;( They are looking a little pink. But you still get the idea.
Onto the making of the cookies. I cheated (like most of the time) and used the premade cookie dough you buy in the refrigerated section. I got sugar cookies, but you can get any type you want. I also got frosting in a tub. Then sprinkled them and throw (almost literally) some white chocolate chips on them. Can’t get any easier unless you bought them already made.
I made these using a mini cupcake pan. You could use a regular cupcake pan and have bigger cookie cups. This will cut the amount of cookies in half.
If you don’t like these cookies, you should go check out my Red, White n Blue Nutter Butters. They look more patriotic. Question is, which would you like better??

Sugar Cookie Cups
Simple easy, using store bought dough and frosting, you can have these made in a jiffy!
Preheat oven to 350○ (or follow instructions on package). Spray the cupcake pan with cooking spray.
Slice the cookie dough about 1/4 " slices. Then cut the slice in half. I ended up with some extra dough. I ate it...took one for the team there. 🙂
Now, roll your half in a ball.
Place the balls in the cupcake pan.
Find something to smash the balls to create a "cup". I used a juicer. Doesn't have to be fancy...or even with a design, it will probably bake out. (See mine)
Spray your utensil with cooking spray or use flour and go slow so you don't pull the dough out of the cup or so the dough doesn't stick.
Bake for 9 minutes depending on your oven. Allow to cool at least 30 minutes.
While the cookies are cooling. Mix your frosting to the color you want.
After the cookies cool, fill with frosting. If you don't have a handy dandy frosting applicator like I do 🙂 You can put your frosting in a baggie and cut the corner, then just squeeze. Here's mine.
After all cookies are filled, sprinkle with you choice of sprinkles then throw, ok, place white chocolate chips.
Feel free to change cookie flavor, frosting and color and even the sprinkles. Totally customizable.
