Baking Christmas cookies is a tradition in many homes. While recipes abound, here’s a spin: cup cookies.

They’re notched to fit on a cup rim, an engaging way to serve a cookie with coffee, tea, hot chocolate or milk.

You can make your favorite recipe or use refrigerated cookie dough.

Treat the family, bring a batch to the workplace, give them as gifts: It adds fun to flavor.

  • Use seasonal shapes throughout the year: pumpkins, ghosts, hearts, Easter eggs: whatever is in your cookie cutter collection (photo #1).
  • Use different flavors: While this recipe uses plain sugar cookie dough, you can use chocolate, gingersnap, shortbread, or whatever you want on your cup.

    RECIPE: CUP COOKIES

    Ingredients

  • 1 package (16.5 ounces/468 g) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1/4 cup (50 ml) all-purpose flour
  • Star-shaped cookie cutter (or shape of choice)
  •  
    Preparation

    1. MIX the sugar cookie dough with the flour in a medium bowl. Roll out the dough on a pastry mat to ¼” (6mm) thickness.

    2. CUT out the stars out using a star-shaped cookie cutter and transfer to a cookie sheet. Using the releasing end of a cake tester tool or a knife, create a notch halfway up the center of the star. (In the recent past, you could buy special cookie cutters that included the notch, but we haven’t been able to find them.)
