If you love growing your own fruit or even if you get your fruit from your local farmers market, here are a few other easy recipe ideas to use up your fresh fruit finds!

Recipe FAQs

What can I add to store bought sugar cookie dough?

Wondering what you can add to your store bought sugar cookie dough to make it better? You can add spices, nuts, extracts, flavoring oils, mini chocolate chips, or even crushed pretzels.

How do I know the cookie cups are done?

If the middle of the cup looks “wet” after pressing in the middle of them with your finger, put them back into the oven for a few minutes. If they look dry, they are done.
