Coffee Cup Cookies

My friend Brian has been on my "to-be-cookied" list for a long time and, since I finally found a good gluten-free cookie recipe, it was his turn. He is a coffee fiend, so coffee cup cookies were a natural choice. 

I made the cookies with Jesicake's Gluten-Free Version of Lilaloa's Chocolate Cookies, which is superb in both taste and in ease of baking. I used a 1.75" square cookie cutter from the Ateco 5-Piece Fluted Square Cookie Cutter Set, but if you weren't worried about gluten, you could "cheat" and use these wafer papers on Lorna Doone shortbread cookies from your grocery store's cookie isle. 

After piping and flooding the cookies, I waited the requisite 24 hrs for them to harden, then wafer-papered them & piped a border with vanilla icing (colored light brown with Hershey's cocoa powder) with a #14 star tip. Brian and his wife loved them :) 

The wafer papers are available for purchase in my store.
