Easy Eggnog Cookie Cups
After Thanksgiving, I continue to have pie on the brain. I mean, it’s PIE! And I am a bit disappointed because we didn’t get our Chocolate cream pie this year.
So while thinking of a fun new Christmas Cookie I can make this year, sitting here drinking my eggnog, thinking about a chocolate cream pie, it just hit me!
Why not combine the two! A chocolate cream pie with eggnog!
The eggnog cookies would make the perfect “crust” to the chocolate cream pie filling!
So taking a page from the raspberry filled sugar cookie cups, I decided to make these Chocolate cream filled Eggnog cookie cups!
You can get everything you need for this recipe at your local Walmart. Visit the Fridge section to pick up your Eggnog and Reddi-wip.
Now let’s get baking!
Obviously, we have to make up the eggnog cookies first. Mix up the cookie dough. I love how this recipe actually uses Eggnog! Most Eggnog cookies only use spices to give the illusion that they taste like Eggnog. Which is all fine and good. But I want to cut some steps out.
So why not just use Eggnog itself! Plus, because we don’t use eggs, you can eat the cookie dough! Who doesn’t love that?
Use the back end of the cookie scoop or a tart press to indent the dough into a cup shape.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
If they lost their shape during cooking, just use the cookie scoop again to reshape into a cup form. Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes before removing from the mini muffin tin.
Then finish cooling on a wire rack.
While the cookies are cooling mix up the Chocolate cream filling.
Once the cookies and chocolate cream are both cooled, fill the eggnog cookie cups with the chocolate filling.
I like to use a Dessert Decorator to make it less messy and so the chocolate filling has a nice shape to it.
Top off with a dollop of Reddi-wip. Sprinkle with extra nutmeg or cinnamon and chocolate shavings if you want. Add a small broken cinnamon stick for fun!
