I made these cute little cookie cups last week for Alpha. I did double the recipe. The single batch makes 24 and that is listed below.
1 package pumpkin spice cookie mix + ingredients listed on package to prepare
¼ cup flour
1 package vanilla instant pudding mix
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp of Pumpkin Pie Spice
Mix vanilla pudding mix and pumpkin pie spice with 1 cup heavy cream and whisk it until it's smooth, place in refrigerator so it will be thick and cold when you are finished baking the cookie cups.
Mix pumpkin spice cookie mix according to package directions and add in ¼ cup flour to the mixture. This will make the dough a bit stiffer.
Make 24 balls of cookie dough and place them into mini muffin pans sprayed with a baking spray so they won't stick. Then press up the sides of the muffin pan.
Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Check with toothpick. Bake at 350, reduce the temp to 325 if using dark coated pans.
When removed from the oven, I like to use the end of a wooden spoon or part of my apple corer to make the well a bit deeper and cleaner looking.
Let cool 5 minutes in pan, then remove the cookie bites from baking pan and cool completely.
Place filling into a piping bag fitted with a large open star tip and pipe filling onto cookie cups.
Refrigerate them until ready to eat, remove 30 minutes before serving so they will come to room temperature.
I can't even begin to tell you how yummy these were!!!!
