Ingredients

Cookie Cups:
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cups icing sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
Filling:
  • half pkg (250 g pkg) cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 5 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream (35%)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Method

Cookie Cups: In stand mixer with paddle attachment, or in bowl using wooden
spoon, beat together butter, icing sugar and vanilla until fluffy; stir in flour just until combined. Roll by 2 tsp into 48 balls. Gently press 1 ball into bottom and up side of each well of 2 lightly greased 24-count mini muffin pans. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Bake, 1 pan at a time, in 325?F (160?C) oven just until edges are light golden, 16 to 18 minutes. Let cool completely in pans; run tip of knife around edges of cups to release from pans.

Filling:
While cookie cups are baking, in bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; beat in icing sugar. Beat in 4 tsp of the jam, the whipping cream and vanilla. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Assembly: Spoon scant 1/4 tsp of the remaining jam into each cookie cup. Using piping bag fitted with small star tip, pipe filling into cookie cups. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days.) Dollop remaining jam in centre of each.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Use the top of a tall, slim-necked bottle (such as
a hot sauce bottle) to form the wells of the cookie cups, wiping the lid clean between uses.
