How To Make Flower Pot Cookies:
Step One: Make The Cookie Cups
To make the flower pot cookies you can use a metal mini muffin pan or a silicone mini muffin pan. The cookies are easier to remove from the silicone pan, so if that is an issue for you try the silicone pan.
First, grease the mini muffin pan and separate Pillsbury Ready To Bake Sugar Cookie Dough into the 24 pieces.
Roll each square in sugar and then place one square in each cup.
Bake at 375 degrees for 11-13 minutes, or until golden brown (if using the silicone pan place it on a cookie sheet). Allow the cookies to cool completely before removing them from the pan.
Step Two: Remove Cookie Cups and Fill
Carefully remove the cookie cups from the muffin tin. I used the tip of a thin knife to gently pop them out. Make chocolate ganache using semi-sweet chocolate chips and heavy cream. Fill the cups with chocolate ganache.
Sprinkle each flower pot cookie with crushed Oreos. Place them in the fridge so that the ganache can cool and set.
Step Three: Create The Flowers
To make the flower cupcake toppers, I used some paper flower embellishments that I found in the bargain bins at Michaels. I carefully separated the green leaves from the flowers and glued both onto toothpicks using hot glue.
Insert the toothpicks into the chocolate of each cookie cup to hold up the flowers.
They are so cheerful looking and are the perfect thing for spring! These Flower Pot Cookies, with their bright colors, look great on a white cake stand for serving.
