Clarion County Recipe of the Day: Strawberry Cookie Cups

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 @ 12:02 AM

Posted by J.C. Taggart

These fancy pastries are the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day!

Strawberry Cookie Cups


1 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 large egg
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 ounces strawberry gelatin
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar


1 – 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar


~Preheat oven to 375°.

~In a large bowl, beat butter and confectioners’ sugar until blended. Beat in egg and vanilla.

~In another bowl, whisk flour, gelatin, baking soda, and cream of tartar; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 30 minutes (or until firm enough to roll).

~On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-3/4-in. flower-shaped cookie cutter. Press cutouts onto bottom and up the sides of ungreased mini-muffin cups. Bake six to eight minutes (or until edges are brown). With the end of a wooden spoon handle, reshape the puffed cookie cups. Cool five minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

~In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar. Pipe into cookie cups. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
