Ingredients

Cookie Cups:

Strawberry Cheesecake Filling:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream cold
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup strawberry puree *
  • pink or red color gel optional

Instructions

Cookie Cups:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and spray 2 regular sized muffin tins with cooking spray.
  • Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt, set aside.
  • Beat butter and sugar on med-high until pale and fluffy (approx. 2-3mins). Reduce speed and add eggs (one at a time), and vanilla. Beat until combined.
  • Add flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Using a large cookie scoop (3 Tbsp), scoop dough into muffin tins, press down to flatten slightly.
  • Bake for 10-12 mins or until lightly browned and mostly set.
  • Remove from oven and immediately use a small jar or container to press firmly down in the center to create a well. Cool in pans for 10 mins, then place on wire rack to cool completely.

Strawberry Cheesecake Filling:

  • Whip heavy cream until stiff peaks (ideally with a cold whisk and in a cold bowl).
  • In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  • Fold cream cheese mixture and strawberry puree into whipped cream. Add additional color if desired. Pipe into cooled cookie cups. Refrigerate until set (approx. 2 hours).
  • Serve cold and eat within 2-3 days. Or freeze for up to 4 weeks.

Notes

* 1 cup of whole fresh strawberries, stemmed and hulled, pureed.
