Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups with Almond Buttercream Frosting
 
 
 

This beautiful recipe comes from sweettoothsweetlife.com These gems are a mix between a mini cupcake and a chocolate cookie.

 

If that wasn’t good enough, you then fill and top with homemade almond buttercream frosting….mmmmmmm. Since I found this recipe 2 weeks ago, I have made them 3 times!

 

So easy and sooooo good. Once batch of these makes about 4-5 dozen cookies, which is a good thing, because they will disappear fast :) heheh Hope you enjoy! XO- Corey

 
 

Here is what you need for the cookies & frosting:

Cookies ingredients
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp coarse salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

 

 

Almond Buttercream Frosting ingredients
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
2-3 cups confectioners sugar
2 tsp almond extract
2-3 tbsp milk

 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together butter and sugars with electric mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

 

2. Reduce speed to low. Add salt, vanilla, and eggs; mix until well blended, about 1 minute.

3. Mix in flour and baking soda.

4. Stir in chocolate chips.













5. Spray mini-muffin tins thoroughly with non-stick cooking spray.Fill cups about 3/4 the way full with dough. Bake cookies 7-9 minutes, or until lightly golden (do not overbake!)

6. Slightly hollow out the center by making small indentations in the center of the cookie. Do this as soon as they come out of the oven. Transfer to wire racks to let cool all the way.

 

7. Now it’s time to make the almond buttercream frosting! Cream together butter and sugar.  Add almond extract and 1 tbsp. milk. Add 1-2 more tbsp until desired consistency is achieved.

8. Fill cookies with frosting, using a pastry bag or sandwich bag with the corner tip cut off.

 My Mom & Dad were in town to enjoy these treats!
