Save time during the busy holidays by freezing baked unfilled cookie cups in airtight containers. Thaw when needed, and top with cream cheese filling.
For a more polished look, spoon frosting into decorating bag fitted with star tip. Pipe frosting on top of each cookie cup.
For an easy garnish, reserve cookie crumbs that cling to the spoon handle when creating the indentations; sprinkle over filling.
If using 20% more cookie mix, add 1 tablespoon water with the mix, butter and egg.
