- Before you get started making this recipe, it is important to note that you will require a mini muffin pan to create the cookie cups. Most mini muffin pans have 24 to 48 different wells. Having one with 48 on hand will be helpful for this recipe as all the cups could be made in one batch. If you only have a mini muffin tin with 24 wells, you can use this as well but you will have to cook them in two different batches.
- To create the cookie cups, you are going to require one box of yellow cake mix.
- You will also want your butter to be softened in order for it to be combined properly into the mix.
- We used 1 package of instant vanilla pudding to create this recipe, it helps to bring together the delicious custard.
- To get started, you will want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray and set it aside.
- Use a large mixing bowl to combine the yellow cake mix, butter and eggs. Use an electric mixer for this step. Mix until it forms a soft dough.
- Scoop the cookie dough by rounded teaspoon into the greased mini muffin cups. You will want to make a total of 36 evenly sized cookie cups. Do not overfill your muffin tins, they should each be no more than 2/3 full of cookie dough.
- Bake the cookie cups at 350 degrees for about 9-10 minutes until they become set. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for 5 minutes.
- Use the end of a wooden spoon to press the center of each cookie in. You want to create a deep indentation where you will later add your cream filling. Run a butter knife gently around the edges of each cookie. This will help them to release from the pan. Make sure to cool them completely on a wire rack before filling them.
- In a small bowl, combine your milk and instant pudding mix. Set it aside.
- Then, in a large mixing bowl you will want to beat 1 cup of the heavy cream with an electric mixer until you see stiff peaks forming. Spoon your vanilla pudding mixture into your whipped cream and beat it with the mixture until it becomes well combined. Scoop the mixture into a large zip top bag and zip it closed. Cut one corner of the bag to create a piping tool and then pipe the filling into the center of each cookie cup.
- In a small microwavable bowl, combine your remaining ¼ cup of heavy whipping cream and the semi sweet chocolate chips. You will want to microwave this mixture for about 15 seconds on high, stirring well and then putting it back into the microwave for an additional 15 seconds. Stir the mixture until it becomes think and glossy and then spoon a small amount of the chocolate onto the top of each cookie cup.
You can serve your cookie cups immediately or refrigerate them for up to 3 days.
How Do I Store These Boston Cream Pie Cookie Cups?
These delicious cookie cups can be stored in a few different ways. They can be stored in the fridge for up to one week when properly covered, or in the freezer for 3 months. If you are keeping them in the freezer, cup them up and wrap each cookie cup individually in plastic wrap and then store them in a freezer safe container. They can be eaten straight from the freezer, or you can allow them to thaw before eating in the fridge.
