Fruit Cookie Cups

 

How did we ever impress our friends and guests before Pinterest? Although I’m half way kidding, Pinterest really has opened the floodgates for endless entertaining possibilities, like these pretty and tasty little fruit cookie cups that I made for a party at my house recently. It wasn’t until after I added my fruit toppings that I realized how Fourth of Julyish this looked. To tone down the Independence Day feel, add other fruit like kiwi or grapes.

 

Ingredients:

1 8oz package of Pillsbury sugar cookie dough
1 8oz package of 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
1 tub of light Cool Whip
Fruit of your choice, I used blueberries and strawberries

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Lightly grease a mini muffin pan
Roll the cookie dough into small circles
Place them in pan and mold them either using our thumb or a pestle
Bake for about 7 minutes
Remove from oven and cool
Chop fruit, if necessary

Meanwhile, mix the Cool Whip and cream cheese using a mixer. It won’t be that sweet, but don’t worry, the cookie and fruit will add sweetness.

Once the cookies have cooled, spread the cheese and cream mixture on the cookie and top with fruit. Use any remaining cream mixture for fruit dip. Alternatively, some people have just used strawberry cream cheese for the cream topping.

  • I saw this on Pinterest. My brother and I moved into a townhome almost 3 years ago. I give him the master bedroom since I wanted the bathroom in the hall that had a tub. Well his room is huge. My room not so much and I in woman's terms don't have enough room for clothes, shoes and purses. We have a small extra bedroom and it hit me since it is just holding stuff I still haven't unpacked to turn it into a closet/dressing room. Your post has given me so many ideas plus this can be done on a budget. Thank you!
