    what is the recipe for the cookie dough used in this recipe?
    How to make the cup shape cookie, won’t the dough melt into a flat sheet when baked in the oven?

    1. Jynae

      You can buy pre-made cookie dough from any grocery store if you don’t feel like making it. She says in the instructions to use a muffin pan.

  2. Patrice

    You listed cookie dough but did not specify what kind. Is this cookie made with sugar cookie dough or chocolate chip dough?

  3. Emily

    In the middle of baking these now. I had to use bigger cupcake tins so I was only able to make about 16. I hope there is enough of the cheesecake filling to go around! It looks amazing.

    cute! Just discovered your web site. Love the thumbprint pics in the index; that’s a huge help! Looking forward to making these this holiday season. thx!

  5. Breanna

    Are these supposed to be used in a mini muffin pan? Just double checking since they are called mini chocolate chip cookie cups!

    1. Kristen

      I am wondering the same thing! I assumed they were based on the title, and they look small at the top, too. But then the 12 count muffin pan makes me think not. They look delicious!

    These are adorable!! I would love to bring these to a potluck or girls’ night. 🙂

  7. Holly @ The Runny Egg

    These are adorable and look like they are super easy to make (but I bet everyone would love them) — two great things I look for in desserts!

  8. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    Easy, awesome, perfect. You are the master of great desserts that make me drool that don’t make me go crazy with mixers, tons of dishes, or complicated directions. THANK YOU, Jenny!!! 🙂
