Easter Nest Cookie Cups

Photo by Elsie Park
These are the cutest mini-muffin-sized treats complete with green colored coconut "grass" and jelly bean "eggs". My girls and I made these adorable cookie cup nests for Easter. Cookie dough, coconut, jelly beans and food coloring: Eight dollars. Spending time with my sweeties: PRICELESS!

Easter Nest Cookie Cups

1 package (16.5 oz.) refrigerated cookie bar dough of choice (I used snickerdoodle)
¼ cup prepared white frosting
5 drops green food coloring
½ cup sweetened flaked coconut
Jelly beans

Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour 24 mini-muffin cups. Place one square of cookie dough into each cup. Bake for 14 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove pans to wire rack. Cool cups completely in pans on wire rack. With tip of butter knife, remove cookie cups from muffin pans. Arrange on serving platter. Drop food coloring in resealable food storage plastic bag. Add coconut. Seal bag and shake and mash around to evenly coat coconut. Spoon a tiny amount of frosting on top of each cup. Add a pinch of green coconut. Top with jelly beans.
