Take-out Tuesday, Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie Cups

This recipe comes with a disclaimer:

You might be tempted to eat these for breakfast…

Actually they are a perfect little treat any time of day or night!

Small sugar cookie cups filled with cheesecake and fresh strawberries…

AND!

They are super easy to make!

I used sugar cookie dough that was already cut into 24 cookies

I also recommend purchasing a silicone mini muffin pan,

{You can get one for under $10 on Amazon here}

it makes baking anything so much easier,

the minis can be easily popped right out!

Put the cookies into a greased pan and bake according to package directions

As soon as they are done, use the end of a wooden spoon or a tamper

to make an indentation in the dough while it is still warm and soft

Push down gently so the bottom of the dough remains in tact

Once dough has cooled in pan,

pop cookie cups out of pan and continue to cool on a wire rack

While cookie cups cool, make the cheesecake filling

Beat cream cheese and sugar together,

then fold in chopped strawberries

Use a cookie scoop or 2 spoons to fill the cookie cups

Refrigerate filled cups for at least one hour before serving

I put some on a serving plate for that night

and the rest in a plastic container to keep for the next few days

Garnish with a piece of strawberry right before serving

  1. Jenna, I would definitely eat these for breakfast! It is strawberry season so this would be a quick and easy dessert. EM would enjoy helping me make these. Wishing you a beautiful day!

    Oh Jenna, I would love this strawberry treat with coffee for breakfast! Such a great recipe and I love how you use the sugar cookie dough to hold the filling. Lovely serving platter for such a pretty presentation. Bet those cookie cups didn’t last long in the refrigerator……..

  3. My strawberry crop is looking promising (well, the leaves are — it’s still two months too early!). This one is loaded with potential!

    • How nice to have strawberries growing in your garden! My favorite way to eat strawberries is in a salad, but I must say, I enjoyed these little cheesecake bites a lot, and they are perfect for gatherings…

    I have a month to go for Jersey strawberries. I bookmarked to make as soon as they come in.

  5. Martha says:

    These look so good and perfect for a little assorted dessert buffet – yum!

  6. These are adorable! Love the tamping technique. So many filling possibilities!

  7. These cute little bites are absolutely irresistible. We adore cookie cups, but usually with chocolate or caramel filling which can be too much if you want to eat a couple of more. These are perfectly light and fruity with berry cheese filling.

  8. These look absolutely yummy! And do-able. I’m tempted to run out and get the ingredients right now! Smiles, Linda at Paper Seedlings

  9. Sounds like a nice little nosh Jenna:@)

    These look yummy! I think I’d try filling them with yogurt and adding fruit on top. Would make a quick summertime dessert! ☀️🍓

  11. Mini desserts are my favorite and these certainly are easy ones to prepare.
