Prepare the sugar cookie dough. Then scoop out 1 tablespoon-sized ball with a scoop or you can eye-ball it.

Bake the sugar cookies and as soon as they start to brown, remove from the oven. Using a flat-bottomed shot glass, press down into the center of each cookie to create a well.

The best way to remove the cooled cookie cups from the muffin pan is to stick a butter knife of offset spatula straight down between the cookie and side of the muffin pan.

Place a dollop of filling into the cookie cup, then top with your choice of berries!
