Super fun matcha shakes cookie cups – the perfect kid-friendly recipe! And for adults, too!I know you are currently busy with Thanksgiving prep so I’ll be quick. I had fun making these cookie cups the other day. It’s one of my bucket list this year, to make these cookie cups for Santa.
When I was little, a group of friends told me that we had to prepare cookies for Santa on December 5th in exchange for the presents. So every year, I waited anxiously for December 5th and determined to give cookie to Santa, but in early December, looking at the delicious cookies, I normally would forget the resolution and would finish all cookies on behalf of Santa instead.
I guess it’s a wish comes true when Nordic Ware introduced me to this cookie cups pan. Isn’t it fun to have cookies and milk at the same time? This pan is one of their Platinum collection that comes in heavy cast aluminum bakeware to support baking performance. I use Nordic Ware pans a lot, especially when baking bundt cake. Mainly because their nonstick surface makes releasing and cleaning up quick and easy, and the same applies to this one.
