I believe it was after a burnt multicolored Easter chip episode that I started sticking them into muffin tins. This works out pretty good, but I have to let them bake an extra few minutes since they stay thicker this way. However, I did stumble upon a fun summer treat one day when I took them out too early. If you take them out before the middles are completely set, then the middles fall in making a cup like shape. This is perfect for putting a small scoop of ice cream in for a mini cookie sundae. I added some strawberry ice cream and whipped cream to these for an awesome summer snack. If you take them out on time, you can give the tray a thump (kind of drop it on the counter) and the middles should still fall in a bit to make room for the ice crream.
Best part is, you can mix and match cookie flavors and ice cream flavors....even use flavored whipped cream if that's what floats your boat. You save on tons of time by cheating and using premade dough. They are super fast to whip up and never fail to make the kids smile!
