FOR “COOKIE CUPS”:
  • lightly grease muffin tins, drop slightly flattened dough (about 1.5-2 tablespoons) into bottom of each,
  • bake for about 16 min, while still warm use a spoon to make an indent on the top of each cookie
  • to loosen, push a knife on the edge of the tin, finish cooling on wire racks.
  • the frosting goes into the indent!
FOR “COOKIE SANDWICHES”:
  • Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, scoop dough by the tablespoonful onto cookie sheets,
  • bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • cool slightly, then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Put frosting on flat cookie bottom (pretty thick), then gently press another cookie on top!
