Today a dear friend  brought me  this pan of fresh picked strawberries.  They are so sweet and delicious!  I hope to get the other ingredients and try this recipe in the next few days.
Strawberry Mousse Sugar Cookie Cups
makes approx 30 cookie cups
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 cup Cool Whip, thawed
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2/3 cup chopped strawberries, plus more for garnish *optional
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 (16.5 oz) tube sugar cookie dough
  1. With your electric mixer beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar together until smooth, about 30 seconds. Carefully stir in your Cool Whip. When combined fold in your chopped strawberries.
  2. Place bowl in refrigerator to chill for 2 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 ° and spray mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Place 1 1/2 teaspoons of cookie dough into each muffin tin.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes until they are just starting to golden.
  5. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle 4-5 white chocolate chips in each cup. The heat from the cookies will melt them. As soon as the chips are soft spread carefully in the bottom of the cookie cup.
  6. Release the cookies from the muffin tin by loosening with a knife. Let cool on a wire rack until ready to fill.
  7. When ready to fill the cups, use either a spoon or a piping bag (or ziplock) and fill each with about one teaspoon of mousse.
  8. Garnish with a strawberry slice, if desired.
Store in refrigerator after assembled or until ready to eat. Recipe adapted from Joy's Hope

I had to share this picture with you  of my granddaughter several years ago.  She's almost 13 now.  Isn't this the sweetest little strawberry picker ever?

  2. I love native strawberries. They are just the sweetest and juiciest. I can't wait to make this cookies.

  3. I LOVE strawberries. This looks yummy! sandie

  4. REAL strawberries! I am anticipating them with relish! And the raspberries, but they will be awhile. I cannot grow either of them in my shady yard, but there is a fabulous raspberry patch a few miles down the road which I frequent often when the season is right.

  5. I'm on my second flat of strawberries from the field. They sell them ready picked because my back won't let me pick very many anymore, but I just love them. I eat them every day. When I read cream cheese on your recipe, I knew I would love that recipe. Our strawberry season is almost over, but I'm looking forward to the blueberries next. They are green on the bushes, but it won't be long the way time flies. I just love summer fruit! ... and yes, that is an adorable picture of your grand daughter - my, how time flies!
