It looks like a cupcake, but tastes like a cookie, so why not call it a cupcookie? Follow these simple instructions for a birthday treat that is as tasty as it is inventive.
1 3/8 inch circle cutter
1 frosting bag
1 star tip
1 rubber band
white food coloring
sprinkles and red dragees
mini baking cups
Hint: You can use any frosting you'd like, but it should be stiff enough to hold its shape when piped. (Add confectioner's sugar to pretty much any frosting to make it stiffer.) Find the cutter and supplies at the craft store.
Bake your cookies. Roll out chilled cookie dough and cut out small circles. You will need two per cupcookie. Bake and let cool.
Frost your cookies. Prepare any frosting of your choice and tint white. Fill a decorating bag fitted with a coupler and a star tip and tie closed with a rubber band. Pipe a dollop of frosting on a cookie and top with another cookie. Then pipe frosting on top of the stack. Start in the center, move out to the edge and pipe round and round, smaller and smaller, until you come to a point at the top. Sprinkle with sprinkles and add a reddragee if desired.
Make your cupcookies. Plop the stack in a mini baking cup and you're done.
