Sugar Cookie Cups – Patriotic

Make the sugar cookie cups for your next holiday treat. Could be patriotic, like these, or color themed for gender reveal, or red and green for Christmas.

Straight on view of sugar cookie cups on a serving plate.

My first post has red and blue frosting with red and blue sprinkles, but the sprinkles just didn’t pop. So, when I came back and updated this post, I updated the look and used white icing with red and blue sprinkles. You’ll see in the recipe below the red/blue frosting if you choose to do it that way.

Need a color theme?

Just dye white frosting to the color of your themed party and choose a sprinkle or chocolate chips to add on top. Having a gender reveal party? Use blue and pink for the frosting and white chocolate chips to top them off. The possibilities for the sugar cookie cups are endless.

Dye the frosting green and red and have some of both!! Or, you could dye the cookie dough and have the opposite color as the frosting.

  • Slice the cookie dough about 1/4 " – 1/2" 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.
    Sugar Cookie Cups
  • 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.

  • 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. **See updated post to see the different colors I used this time**

  3. Thank you so much for taking one for the team, leftover cookie dough is a national tragedy…God Bless you for all you do for us and our county. I need to make these, right? How yummy would they be filled with nutella? Pretty good right? Thanks for sharing!
