hey everyone it’s almost Christmas so I decided to make something really special for you today I’m making the sugar cookies that are shaped like tea cups with candy cane handles and you can fill them with just about anything you want i’m using just my regular sugar cookie icing but keep watching i’ll show you step-by-step how to make these start with your favorite sugar cookie mix this recipe calls for one-third cup of softened butter mix with 1 tablespoon of flour and a large egg mix well divide your dough into two separate bowls and then add food coloring rapido plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes remove the dough from the refrigerator and knead on a lightly floured surface fill a muffin tin with some dough and pressed tightly against the sides and bottom i use a small cup to press the dough firmly down place your tray in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes this will help the dough from spreading too much in the oven bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes when you remove them from the oven you’ll notice that the center is filled in a bit just use the back of a small dipping bowl or a one-fourth cup measuring cup to press down the dough to shape it properly this needs to be done immediately after moving from the oven after happy with the shape let them sit and cool using a butter knife take a mini candy cane and break off the excess remove your cookies from the Muslim town to attach the candy canes i melted some white chocolate and dip the ends into it then held them to the side of the cookies until they dried to make the icing i started with four tablespoons of softened butter then i added a half a cup of light corn syrup add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract mix the wet ingredients well when done mixing add two cups of confectionery sugar a little bit at a time if your icing gets too dry just add a little milk 1 teaspoon at a time until it reaches the consistency you want your icing is done when its thick but still pliable fill your cookie cups with the icing and top with some crushed candy canes well thanks for watching to see how to make the sugar-cookie tea cups or sugar cookie coffee mugs whatever you want to call them i hope you enjoyed this video and if you did hit that like button also if you haven’t subscribed yet hit subscribe you’ll see new videos every Sunday and since christmas is almost over that pretty much wines down our christmas little baking so other things will be coming up and every sunday at two o’clock i will still put new videos up so keep tuned stay tuned and i will see you guys next Sunday
