Orange and Cream Cookie Cups
Life has taken a really interesting turn. These days we’re staying indoors more, so it’s all about finding new things to do, and for all the mom’s out there, finding treats that are simple and fun for the kiddos. And we’ve got a great snack here that will please the little tastebuds and the grown up ones too. It’s my new recipe for Gluten free Orange and Cream Mini Cookie Cups.
It may sound like a mouthful, but one bite of these Gluten Free Cookie Cups and you’ll be hooked. Inspired by my Gluten Free Cheesecake Cookie Tarts from the Homemade for the Holidays Cookbook. These are the perfect treat with spring in the air and baking up an easy and unique snack.
GLUTEN FREE ORANGE & CREAM COOKIE CUPS
Over Christmas, we made a Holiday version of these by adding some Holiday Jam and flavors to the recipe. But with spring and all the fresh fruit in the air, I thought a citrus version would be a nice twist. And the results were a hit! The orange and cream cheese flavor combo was a winner.
But if you’re not into orange simply swap it our for some lemon, and you’ve got a real fresh dessert.
MAKING COOKIE CUPS
Making these mini cookie cups or tarts, is as simple as using a sugar cookie dough and baking it in a mini cupcake pan. You then add your filling and serve them up as a mini dessert.
That way when you bite into them you get a little filling and a nice chance of cookie. Give me a cup of tea and I’m in a happy place.
