Strawberry Cream Cookies

With the holiday season comes festive parties, entertaining, and baking. I wanted to share a super easy, no-mess recipe for delicious cookie bites that have a beautiful presentation. The red and white color combination is perfect for the holiday season or for a summer BBQ.

If you need a fast and simple festive dessert for a party you're hosting or to bring as a guest, these Strawberry Cream Cookies are a perfect choice!

Supplies & Ingredients:
Mini Muffin Pans
1 package of break apart sugar cookie dough
1 can of Duncan Hines Cream Cheese frosting
1 package of strawberries

Break apart the cookie dough and place one square of dough in each muffin cup. Don't worry about pressing the dough into the mold; it will naturally form to the muffin shape as it bakes. Bake as directed on the package for time & temperature.

When set but still warm, remove the cookies from the mini muffin pan and place on a cooling rack.

Wash the strawberries and slice them lengthwise into thirds (or halves for smaller strawberries.)

When the cookies are cool, place a dollop of cream cheese frosting on each cookie & top with a strawberry slice.

Since I first had this treat at my friend Kari's party, I've made them for several groups and have gotten rave reviews every time. Enjoy!

So true about this being one of the most impressive simple recipes! I'm glad you posted it as I haven't made these since I last led a small group. It just might be time to pull it out again. :)

Glad to see you are back! I will definetly want to make these, Arden LOVES strawberries. It's hard to keep up with blogging ometimes. It's work!! It's the downloading the pictures part!!--that's what makes it time consuming.

I'm curious to see what may be in store for you guys. Hhhhhmmm..some guesses I thought of are: 1) you're being featured on a television comercial since you guys met online and are now happily married, 2) you're possibly being picked to be on a decor/home improvement show since you guys are new home owners and you're so into decorating your house...or 3) you may be selected to host a foreign exchange student?

Probably not the last one, since you guys are practically newlyweds!

You probably think I'm a crazy person for sitting here trying to guess what is going on in your life! I'll stop typing now. :)
