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.


Voila! 20 minutes later and your guests are happy (and oozing over this amazing dish).

Happy Friday!
