Sugar Cookie Cups

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour spooned and leveled- not scooped
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 3 tbsp whipped topping
  • ½ cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
  • *additional confectioners sugar for dusting



  • In a small bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder – set aside.
  • In a large mixer bowl, beat the butter until soft.
  • Add the sugar and mix well.
  • Add the egg and vanilla - mix again just until incorporated.
  • Slowly add the flour/baking powder mixture and stir until the dough begins to pull together.
  • Roll the dough into a ball and wrap with plastic wrap- refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Once the dough has chilled, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pull off pieces of dough and roll it into balls. Then press into the wells of a greased muffin tin pan making the cup shape.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes and allow to cool in the pan before removing.
  • To remove, slide a butter knife along the inside- they should pop right out.


  • Whisk the ricotta in a large bowl until smooth.
  • Stir in the confectioner's sugar and vanilla and whisk until combined.
  • Fold in the whipped topping and chocolate chips.
  • Do not assemble until ready to serve as the filling will start to soften the cookie cup.
  • Once ready to serve spoon about a tablespoon of your filling into the cookie cup.
  • Dust with confectioner's sugar and add a couple more mini chocolate chips to the top.
