Water, oil and egg called for on cookie mix pouch

1 container vanilla frosting

27 Peeps marshmallow trees

Shredded coconut, white candy sprinkles, coarse decorator sugar crystals, as desired

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Make cookie dough as directed on pouch. Shape dough into 27 balls; place 1 ball in each of 27 ungreased miniature muffin cups. Bake 11 to 13 minutes, or until edges are set and light golden brown.

2. Immediately press indentation into center of each cookie cup with handle of wooden spoon. Cool 10 minutes in muffin cups; remove to cooling rack to cool completely, about 15 minutes.
