Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

Come take a peek at my latest video for Good Bite and see this simple dessert recipe I whipped up for The Real Women of Philadelphia. Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups. Hope you enjoy!


Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

16 ounces prepared cookie dough
8 ounces softened Philadelphia cream cheese
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray 3 12 count muffin pans with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop cookie dough into prepared muffin pans. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until just turning golden brown. Remove and immediately use the handle of a wooden spoon to press out the centers of each cookie to make room for the filling. Let cool for 15 minutes before removing.

3. Place cream cheese, brown sugar, and vanilla into a medium bowl, mixing until well combined. Place dollops of cream cheese filling into center of cookie cups and top with mini chocolate chips.

Makes 36 servings



Enjoy! Have a great day and come back soon!

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

      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!

    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.

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

    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?

      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.
