Food Friday: Fruit Cups

Um hello, best food ever.

Maybe it's because I am getting enormously pregnant and have cravings for fruit. Or maybe it's because I was in a super super rush and needed a dessert fast for a get-together. Either way: WOAH MAMA! This is a dessert that will rock your socks off.

Here is what you need:
  • 1 batch of sugar cookie dough (pre-made, homemade, or + egg and butter mix packet. I opted for number three because of the time restrictions.
  • 1 8oz tub of Cool Whip
  • Lemon Pudding (two pudding cups or homemade and eyeball it... I was in a rush so I used cups)
  • Strawberries (optional)
  • Blueberries (optional... I don't even like blueberries but mixed with kiwi and strawberries? Oh. Em. Gee.)
  • 1 Kiwi fruit
  • A quart sized freezer bag

Save the flops for your hubby... make sure he knows not to eat the good ones!
Put about a teaspoon of cookie dough into the bottom of a mini muffin tin and flatten. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until it is just starting to brown on the outsides. Leave it a little gooey as it makes the cup that much better. 

Let cool either in the fridge or on a cooling rack. I used the fridge so I could get done quick (do you see a trend??).

Mix together the pudding and Cool Whip until creamy.  Now I am a little OCD so I like the cream to look pretty. Instead of spooning the mixture onto the cooled cookie, I put it into a quart sized baggie, let out air and cut off one of the bottom corners. It essentially makes a cheap (yet effective) piping tool. Top all cookies with mixture.

Slice the strawberries and chop the kiwi and place a mixture on top of the cookie/cream and SERVE! If you need it for later, just be sure to keep cool.
