FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Do I have to use sugar cookie dough?

While I think this is the best flavor for this particular recipe, you can also use chocolate, chocolate chip or snickerdoodle cookie dough.

Can I make my own sugar cookie dough?

Yes, if you have a recipe that you like you can absolutely make your own homemade. Just make sure that you use as much as the recipe calls for (weighing would be suggested).

Can I use other pie fillings?

You can use any of your favorite pie fillings. Some of our favorites are strawberry, blueberry, apple, cherry, lemon, etc.

What if I can’t find a 24 count cookie dough package?

You can buy the 12 count cookie dough. You will just put 1 cookie in each of the wells in the muffin tin. The 12-count individual cookies are larger than the 24-count cookies. They will come out slightly thinner but still taste amazing.

Can these be made ahead of time?

You can make the cookie cup bases ahead of time and place in an airtight container in the refrigerator where they will keep for 2-3 days. Once you want to serve, remove the cups from the refrigerator and then add the pie filling and bake for 5-6 minutes and then glaze.

How do I store leftovers?

These can be stored in an airtight container in a single layer in the refrigerator where they will keep for up to 5-6 days. They can also be frozen. Place in a single layer in a freezer container and they will keep for up to 4 months. To defrost, remove to the refrigerator overnight and then to the countertop to come to room temperature.
