Star-Spangled Cookie Bites
Updated February 10, 2020
Pillsbury Cookie Dough
package (16 oz) Pillsbury™ Ready to Bake!™ Cookies Sugar
ounces cream cheese, softened
container (5.3 oz) Greek vanilla yogurt
package (9 oz) candy lemon drops
cup fresh raspberries
cup fresh blueberries
Preheat oven to 350°F. Place one sugar cookie in each of 24 cups in a nonstick mini muffin tin. Bake for 10-14 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are slightly browned. Remove and cool completely before twisting each cup gently from the tin.
Put lemon drop candies in a blender and blend until reduced to a fine lemon-drop sugar.
In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat together the cream cheese, yogurt, and all but 1/4 cup of the lemon-drop sugar until light and fluffy.
Spoon lemon cream cheese filling into the center of each cup. (Or, pipe using a pastry bag fitted with a large, star tip for more decorative flair). Decorate each cup with fresh berries. Serve immediately, or refrigerate up to 8 hours. Enjoy!
