Lemon Chiffon Cookie Cups

It was my cute friend Cami’s Bridal Shower this morning so I made these sweet little cookie cups for the happy occasion.  They were really easy and really yummy!

cookies

1 pouch sugar cookie mix plus ingredients to make cookies

filling

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 stick butter (1/2 cup), softened

4 cups powdered sugar

Wilton Treatology System’s Sweet Meyer Lemon (10 drops) and Creamy Vanilla Custard (4 drops) Flavor Concentrates

yellow sanding sugar for decorating

1  For cookies, preheat oven to 350 or 325 for dark colored pans.  Spray wells of mini muffin pan with cooking spray for baking.

2  Prepare cookie mix as directed on package.  Scoop 1″ balls into each well and bake for about 10 minutes until just starting to brown around edges.  Immediately upon removing from oven, carefully press with mini tart shaper to make cookie cups.  Let sit in pan 15 minutes before removing carefully from pan to cooling rack to cool completely.

3  For filling, beat cream cheese and butter until creamy.  Slowly beat in powdered sugar until smooth then add flavoring and beat until combined.  Pipe or scoop filling into cookie cups and sprinkle with sanding sugar.

Yield: just under 4 dozen
