I created the cutest tart shells and cookies with the same recipe. I have to say the tart shell idea is wicked cute but I did find it a bit hard to remove them from the muffin tin.
If you want to keep this recipe easy-peasy…then definitely just roll out and make cookies.
But the tart shells were so dang cute.
I just added a stick of butter, an egg and about 1/3 cup of corn meal to the cake mix.
Rolled it out use a small scalloped edge cookie cutter about 3 in in diameter and placed on the back side of a generously oiled mini-muffin tin.This cute idea was courtesy of my Mom who is always scouring magazines to get new recipes. When these little cups were thoroughly cooled, I removed from the tin and filled with a bit of whipped cream.
Then topped with some chopped strawberries and blueberries. So cute, right?
I saved half the dough in the fridge and the next day whipped up some cookies with the same dough. This time I made up some diamond shaped cookies and added just a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar with my Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Sugar grinder!
These cookies are delightful…but SWEET…so suggest a one cookie limit if possible!
Here’s the recipe. Hope you enjoy!
