Quote and recipe by @twofashionablefoodies.
- 1 package Sweet Loren’s Sugar Cookie Dough
- 2-3 cups fresh strawberries, diced
- 1 1/2 cups whipped topping or whipped cream (Reddi-Wip almond and coconut non-dairy whipped cream used here)
- ¾ cup strawberry sugar glaze (homemade or store-bought), optional
- Confectioner’s sugar for dusting
- Let the cookie dough get to room temperature so it becomes more malleable and soft to the touch.
- Preheat the oven to 325F. Flip your 12-count muffin pan over, and grease the bottom using cooking spray or coconut oil. Alternatively, you can use a mini muffin pan.
- Use a clean surface or cutting board to work the dough (you can dust with flour if it starts to become sticky).
- Press down on the cookie dough balls with the palm of your hand to flatten them. You can also use a rolling pin for this.
- Take the flattened cookie dough and place it on the underside of the muffin pan. Mold it around the muffin cup so it covers the sides.
- Repeat this process by pressing each cookie dough ball under one of the muffin cups. If you have a mini cupcake pan, you could split one cookie dough ball in two and make smaller cups.
- Place the muffin pan in the oven (cookie side up) and bake for 13-15 minutes.
- While cookie cups are baking, dice your strawberries and combine in a bowl with the strawberry glaze. Set aside. You could easily customize this recipe and make individual cups and you can control how many strawberries or how much glaze to use.
- Take cookie cups out of the oven. It is normal to have spill-over or irregular edges around the cups. While the cookie dough is still warm, cut around or separate any that have stuck together.
- Let cookie dough cool for about 10-15 minutes. The cookie cups should easily slide off the muffin pan. You can then trim any excess cookie at the top to form a more polished cookie bowl. (You can snack on the excess bits or sprinkle them on top of your finished dessert).
- Fill the cookie cups with a layer of the strawberry mix, then a layer of whipped cream/topping. Repeat so there are two layers of each (or you can choose to do just one layer of each, depending on your preference).
- Finish with a dusting of powdered sugar. Enjoy!
