All you need are a few simple ingredients, including our Sugar Cookie Dough to bring this beautiful and delicious dessert to life. Follow these easy steps listed below.

Prep time: 30 minutes
Bake time: 8 minutes
24 Servings

  • 1 cup lemon curd (homemade or store-bought)
  • ¾ cup whipped cream (can use dairy whipped cream or coconut whipped cream
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  1. Preheat oven to 325F and thaw cookie dough at room temperature so it becomes soft to touch.
  2. Fill the 24-count mini cupcake pan(s) with mini muffin liners. You can skip this step if using a silicone pan.
  3. Break each cookie portion into 2 pieces and press one piece into the bottom and sides of each muffin tin. Repeat with remaining cookie dough until all 24 muffin spaces are filled with dough. View photo
