Strawberry Sugar Cookie Cups

Sugar cookie cups filled with LuckyLeaf® Strawberry fruit filling and drizzled with white chocolate. A cute festive bite size treat for your holiday cookie tray. 

Happy Saturday everyone!!! I know Thanksgiving will be here in a few short weeks, but today I'm bringing you a sweet treat perfect for your holiday cookie tray. Strawberry Sugar Cookie Cups filled with a strawberry fruit filling and drizzled with melted white chocolate.  

This is an easy to make holiday treat using Lucky Leafs high quality fruit filling and topping. Each cookie cup is soft and chewy on the inside and lightly crispy on the outside just like a sugar cookie should be. Everyone will go crazy over these cute little cookie cups. 

This easy recipe uses my favorite homemade sugar cookie dough, but if you're in a pinch for time you can absolutely use store bought cookie dough. The fruit fillings are also interchangeable, so just pick your favorite, but I think strawberry, cherry and raspberry are perfect for Christmas.

Strawberry Sugar Cookie Cups

1/3 - cup salted butter, softened
1/3 - cup shortening
1 - cup granulated sugar
1 - teaspoon vanilla extract
1 – beaten egg
2 - cups all purpose flour
1 - teaspoon baking powder
1 – (21 oz) can Lucky Leaf Strawberry Pie Filling
White Chocolate Chips, melted for drizzling 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously spray a 24 mini muffin pan with non stick baking spray.

In a medium size bowl beat the butter and shortening together with an electric mixer. Add sugar, vanilla extract and beaten egg; mix to combine.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture. Mix together scraping the sides of the bowl.

I used my kitchen aid mixer (with the paddle attachment) to mix everything until it pulled away from the bowl and started to form into a ball.

Using a one inch cookie scoop, scoop out cookie dough and roll into a ball, add one cookie dough ball to each muffin cup.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 11-13 minutes or the edges are lightly golden brown. Watch closely so they do not brown too quickly.

Remove from oven and press down each cookie cup (using the back of cookie scoop) to make a small indentation to form a small cup.

Let cookie cups cool in pan for 10 – 15 minutes before removing. To remove run a butter knife around the edges and pop out each cookie cup. Cool cookie cups completely on a baking rack before filling.

Fill each cookie cup with about one tablespoon of strawberry pie filling. Drizzle tops with melted white chocolate.

Cook's Note: One 16.5 oz roll of refrigerated cookie dough can be substituted for homemade sugar cookie dough. 


prep time: 10 min
cook time: 11-13 min

recipe yields: 30 cookie cups
