  Pre-made sugar cookie dough is placed into a muffin cup pan and baked in under 10 minutes.  Next, layer a lighter frosting recipe on top then place an assortment of fruit on the top.  These are the perfect bite sized little treats to control cravings and portion sizes.  And if you want more than one, I wont judge.

They are addicting.  Use your favorite in season fruits such as, strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, grapes, bananas, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and oranges.  Each cookie is moist and chewy with a delicate scoop of whip cream and cream cheese frosting balanced with your favorite fruits.

Truly, this is such an easy and delicious dessert recipe.  It’s perfect for an after school snack or after dinner dessert.  These sugar cookie fruit cups can be made even lighter by skipping the canned frosting and substituting with reduced fat cool whip whipped cream.

    These sound great! How much dough do you use in each muffin cup?

    Thank You!

      About 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough. If you buy pre packaged sugar cookie dough in one of three ways : 24 mini cookies – clump 2 dough pieces together for each cup tin — : 12 cookie dough squares – 1 piece of dough per cup tin — : Roll sugar cookie dough – a good tablespoon and a half.
      Hope this helps!

    Cute idea. Just wondering if you used full-sized muffin tins or mini muffin tins. Thanks!
