Recipe of the Week #5

Taking a little break from my stories about India to bring you my next recipe. I am at least 3 weeks behind on my weekly recipe plan, but that's ok. Here's the cookie recipe I made for our Christmas Cookie exchange...they were yummy!

Cream Cheese Cookie Cups
  • 1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated chocolate chip cooke dough
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar


  1. Cut cookie dough in half (save one portion for another use). With floured hands, press about 1 tablespoon of dough onto the bottom and up the sides of 12 ungreased miniature muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  2. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, reshape the puffed cookie cups. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla until blended. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar. Spoon into cookie cups. Store in the refrigerator.
