Gnome Cookie Cups

4-ingredient gnome cookies are as cute as they are delicious! A perfect dessert for your Christmas cookie exchange, a garden party or whenever you want a treat.


  • 1 pkg Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough I used the break apart kind
  • 24 oz White Frosting about 2-3 tubes of prepared frosting
  • 24 Strawberries
  • 24 Skittles I used the pink ones from the Skittles Smoothie mix


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a mini muffin pan with cooking oil spray. You can also use mini cupcake liners if you have them.
  • Place one cookie into each muffin cup. You don’t need to flatten or roll them.
  • Bake cookies for 20 minutes and place pan on a wire rack to cool.
  • While the cookies are still warm, take a small scoop to gently press the cookies into a cup shape.
  • Cool completely before removing from the pan.
  • Wash strawberries and cut out the crowns in a v shape.
  • Take a fully cooled cookie cup and pipe frosting into the cup. You want to be a little generous here.
  • Then push a strawberry on top of the icing and add a pink candy nose just under the strawberry.
