Chocolate Chip Cookie Cakelets

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cakelets

These cute cookie cakelets make adorable individual treats to celebrate with others. They’re party perfect, baked in tiny 5-inch pie pans.

Cookie Dough

Mix up some yummy chocolate chip cookie dough and add pastel confetti sprinkles along with milk chocolate or semi sweet chocolate morsels.

Tiny Pie Pans

I used these 5-inch metal pie pans that I found at Home Goods and snatched up as soon as I saw them because they were so cute. They’re probably long gone by now, but here are some [1] I found online that are similar. You can also find aluminum pans in this size online.

Cookie Dough Mounds

When baking, just scoop even mounds of cookie dough in each pan, but don’t press it into the bottom. Let the dough bake to fill the pan shape.

Piping Chocolate Frosting

When cool, pipe a thick border of chocolate frosting around each cookie and add a few more confetti sprinkles.

Ingredients:

COOKIES
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 oz. pkg chocolate morsels
  • 1/3 cup confetti sprinkles
FROSTING
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup natural unsweetened cocoa
  • 3-5 tablespoons milk

Directions:

  1. FOR COOKIES: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and very lightly grease 6 5-inch pie pans.
  2. Sift flour, soda and salt together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Cream butter and both sugars using a mixer until light and fluffy. Add both eggs and vanilla and continue mixing until completely incorporated.
  4. Slowly add flour mixture until just combined. Stir in about 3/4 of the morsels and about half of the confetti sprinkles, reserving the rest for later.
  5. Using a 2 1/2-inch ice cream scoop, place six large mounded scoops of cookie dough in each pan. Press the extra morsels and some of the sprinkles on the surface of the dough, but keep the dough mounded when placing pans in the oven. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
  6. FOR FROSTING: Cream butter and vanilla in a stand mixer. Sift sugar and cocoa together in a medium bowl and then slowly add to mixer in intervals, mixing thoroughly with each addition. Add milk a few tablespoons at a time until creamy and smooth.
  7. Fit a pastry bag with a decorating tip and pipe frosting around edge of cooled cookie. Sprinkle with remaining confetti sprinkles.
  8. Place a tiny 1-1/2 inch scoop of ice cream in the center of each cakelet to top it off.
