Ingredients

Sugar Cookie Crust

  • 1-17.25 oz pkg sugar cookie mix
  • ½ cup butter {softened}
  • 1 egg

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 4 oz cream cheese {softened}
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract

Fresh Strawberry Topping

  • ½-¾ cup strawberries {finely chopped}
  • ¼ cup seedless strawberry jam

Instructions

Sugar Cookie Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Combine sugar cookie mix, 1 stick of softened butter and egg with a hand held mixer {or by hand} until you have a thick dough.

  3. Generously spray each cup of the mini muffin tin. Use a small cookie scoop and scoop a mound of dough into each cup. Press the top of the mound down slightly with your fingers so that you have a level top.

  4. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately run a knife around the edge of each cookie to loosen them. Once the cookies are loose, take a tart shaper and create an indentation into the middle of each cookie.

  5. Allow the cookies to cool and bake the remainder of the dough.

Cream Cheese Filling

  1. In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Using a hand held mixer, mix the ingredients until you have a smooth filling.

  2. Put the filling into a piping bag {or Ziploc bag} cut a small triangle off of the end. Pipe the filling into the bottom of each sugar cookie crust. Being sure to leave room for the strawberry topping.

Strawberry Topping

  1. Combine the chopped strawberries and seedless strawberry jam in a small bowl. Mix gently until everything is combined. This will ensure that the fresh strawberries don't mash up.

  2. Spoon about a teaspoon of strawberry filling onto the top of each pie bite. I like to be sure that it is covering the cream cheese filling.

  3. Serve or refrigerate for up to 2 days.
