What’s Not To Love?

Despite being small, Raspberries are nutrient-dense and are a great source of fiber, manganese, and vitamin C. According to Harvard Medical School, the flavonoids in berries have also been discovered to help with mood, memory, and coordination–making them an instant favorite when it comes to desserts. 

Its taste is sour and fruity with the right amount of sweetness, making it an ideal topping, filling, or flavor to pastries to even out the flavors. Raspberry, though considered a seasonal fruit, can still be bought fresh in markets or supermarkets all year round.

Healthy Substitutions

Though this recipe calls for raspberries, using a different type of fruit in season can also be possible. Instead, you can use strawberries, blueberries, mangoes, pears or peaches or anything you can think of that is in season. You can also make it gluten-free by using almond flour instead of the regular all-purpose flour to make the cookie dough. For the jam, you can use the store-bought version or make it from scratch for lesser costs. You can make the cream cheese filling ahead of time for faster prep time.

Ingredients
  

Cookie Dough:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

Raspberry Filling:

  • ½ cream cheese, softened 8 ounces package
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam

Instructions
 

Cookie Dough:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray mini muffin pans with floured nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream butter, and powdered sugar until smooth. You can also use a hand mixer.
  • Add in the vanilla extract and salt.
  • Gradually mix in the flour. Continue mixing until you form a batter.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon balls of cookie dough into each mini muffin pan. Make a crust by pressing it up the pan's sides. To press the cookies, I find it simplest to use the back of a wooden spoon, a strong handle, or a glass (rather than using my fingers).

For the filling:

  • Cream the cream cheese until soft, then add in the softened butter.
  • Continue to mix it until well combined.
  • Add in the lemon juice and lemon zest.
  • Gradually incorporate the powdered sugar into the mixture.
  • Mix all together until the texture becomes smooth and less grainy.
  • Transfer the filling into a piping bag and set the filling aside until ready to use.

To assemble:

  • Fill your cookie crust with raspberry jam in the bottom layer.
  • Top it with cream cheese filling it up to the rim.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges are beginning to turn golden. Let the cookie cups cool down completely before removing them from the pan.
  • Garnish the cookie cups with a fresh raspberry. Enjoy!

Notes

You can store leftover cookie cups in an airtight container for 3 days. Or freeze for up to 3 months.
