I have been on a major lemon kick now that it’s officially spring! I made our amazing lemon bars last week and have been dreaming of them ever since! A few years ago, I made these Cream Filled Sugar Cookie Cups and thought they would be so good with a lemon curd filling. These lemon filled sugar cookie cups are perfect for parties or showers!
I started with a homemade sugar cookie crust for each cookie cup. If you are short on time, a roll of pre-made sugar cookie dough would work fine for this recipe! After the cookie cups come out of the oven, press the middle in with the backside of a spoon while they are warm.
While my sugar cookie cups were cooling, I made this easy no-bake lemon curd. This lemon curd is simple to make and absolutely foolproof!
As soon as the curd thickened a little, I spooned it into the cookie cups. A teaspoon of lemon curd filled them up perfectly!
I topped the cookie cups off with some fresh lemon zest and let them set up a little more in the fridge! The trick to getting these lemon filled cookie cups out of the pan is by running a butter knife along the edge of each cookie cup and just popping them out! Don’t use a spoon to try and get them out because it is too rounded and will dent in the sides of the cookie cup…. I speak from experience haha!
I couldn’t wait much longer to dig into them, so after about 30 minutes I took them out of the fridge and dusted them with powdered sugar before diving right in!
You could go without the powdered sugar on top, but it adds just the right amount of sweetness!
These tasty little cookie cups had all the goodness of lemon bars in one convenient little bite!
My cute little helper might have liked them even more than I did! Check out that powdered sugar mustache! Haha!
