Festive Mini Sugar Cookie Cups

We have been doing a lot of holiday baking in our house. For obvious reasons I usually decide what we will bake, but last week K came home all excited about a recipe she found at the grocery store. She was so enthusiastic about baking Festive Mini Sugar Cookie Cups, how could I not agree to baking the cookies she picked out? 

Sugar Cookie Cup
So after school K and I baked her dream cookies using a recipe created by General Mills and found on a flyer at the grocery store. The timing was actually perfect, little did she know, because Betty Crocker had just sent me a gift basket full of baking supplies (and one to giveaway). So I already had everything we needed to make the cookies. 

It was time to get our Betty on!

Baking Christmas Cookies
In case you are wondering, that is a donut crown she is wearing from the fairytale parade. She was dressed up like Daisy the Donut Fairy earlier in the day.  

With the help of Betty Crocker’s sugar cookie mix, my mini baking assistant and I made a batch of festive mini cookie cups in less than an hour (between school and Girl Scouts). 

K’s favorite part was “smooshing” the Hershey’s Kisses onto the tops of the cookies. 

Cookie Cups
The cookies are as good as they look, and using the Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix makes this recipe a cinch. In fact, I plan to pack up a dozen for my cookie exchange later this week. 

Seems like these would also make great bite-sized cookies for Santa.
