Needless to say, my mind was rather blown when I saw this tip over on Lifehacker. Flip a muffin tin upside down to make edible bowls out of cookie dough? I can get on board with that.It really is as simple as it sounds. Make a batch of cookie dough, turn over your muffin tin, and press the dough around the individual muffin wells (now muffin domes). A spritz of non-stick coating over the muffin tin helps ease the bowls off after baking.
This makes bowls that are just the right size for a few scoops of ice cream or a helping of pudding. Cookie dough also strikes me as sturdy enough to hold that ice cream without cracking or turning into mush before you're done with the ice cream part. Even so, I'm thinking that a plate underneath the cookie bowl is probably a good idea!
