chocolate cream pie cookie cups
Servings: 24Cookie Cups
Chocolate Cream Pie
8ozcream cheese, softened to room temperature
Graham Cracker Cookie Cups
3/4cupgraham cracker crumbs
1 1/4cupsall-purpose flour
3/4cupsheavy whipping cream
1Tbspwhite chocolate instant pudding mix (this stabilizes the whipped cream)
chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin with baking spray. Set aside.
Beat butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until well combined (using a standing mixer, hand mixer, or by hand).
Add in the egg, and mix until combined.
Add in vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt, mixing until combined.
Next, add in graham cracker crumbs and flour. Mix until well combined.
Using a 1” cookie scoop (about 1 Tbsp) disperse dough evenly between the muffin cups.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden and the centers have risen (once you take the cookie cups out of the oven, the centers might sink a bit, which is fine).
Immediately, or within a couple of minutes, press centers down to form a cup shape (I used a tsp to do this). Allow to cool completely.
With a standing mixer or hand mixer, whip the heavy cream and white chocolate pudding mix until soft peaks form. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and whip until the consistency of whipped cream.
Divide whipped cream in half.
Chocolate Cream Pie
Mix cream cheese, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar together. Once well combined, fold in half of the whipped cream, gently mixing until everything is incorporated.
Spoon the chocolate cream pie filling into each cookie cup, about 1 Tbsp or so.
With a piping bag and star tip, pipe the remaining whipped cream onto each cookie cup.
Sprinkle with chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips.
If desired, chill cookie cups for 30 minutes before serving (while they can be eaten immediately, if you prefer a cold filling, I would suggest chilling).
