Sugar Cookie Pudding Cups


Happy getting closer to Friday friends! Its almost the weekend, which is always a reason to celebrate! These pudding sugar cookie cups are the perfect quick and easy dessert. They are great for a celebration or for any occasion because they are simple and delicious! You can create for any occasion these are Christmas themed.

Sugar cookies are so very versatile!  Not only can they be basic rolled out dough, but the dough can be transformed into these cute little cups.  Just waiting for the perfect filling.  I chose some cute red and green fun!!

The cookie cups baked until just golden so they remain super soft, melt-in-your-mouth chewy.

These were a definite win in our house.  The fun of making cookies with the kids, super cute, and not as much time spent on decorating them.  Plus there’s still the fun of adding sprinkles & getting them EVERYWHERE!!
