Fruit Cookie Cups
Makes: 24 Mini-Cups
1 Package Pillsbury Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Assorted fruits, chopped to equal size
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 24-count mini-muffin pan (or use liners).
2.) Slice sugar cookie dough into 24 equal parts, roll into a ball, and place in each muffin cup.
3.) Using your thumb, mold the sugar cookie dough into the shape of the muffin tin, ensuring they stay equal thickness.
4.) Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. (Watch them).
5.) Remove from oven when golden brown. They will be puffy, but will lose that upon cooling. Once cool, transfer to a serving platter, tray, etc.
6.) Mix the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a mixture. Pipe into the cooled cookies. Top with fruit.
