These Fruit Cheesecake Sugar Cookie Cups are fresh, fruity and totally perfect for spring! Easter dessert maybe?
The combination of moist and chewy sugar cookie, smooth no-bake cheesecake and fresh fruit is such a wonderful mix of taste and texture. I want them all to myself!
I recently got the chance to try a bag of Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar. It’s a non-GMO verified and vegan morena sugar. A morena sugar is one that doesn’t undergo conventional refining processes, which remove the complexity and flavor in raw sugar cane after it’s been processed.
Zulka’s sugar has a more natural, slightly brown color to it. The granules are also bigger than regular granulated sugar, but it’s completely interchangeable with regular sugar -> 1 cup regular sugar = 1 cup Zulka sugar. And it packs a big, sugary flavor punch! Yum!
Actually, talking about natural sugar reminds me of stories the hubs has told before of growing up in South Africa. Have I ever mentioned that before? Yea, the hubs is originally from South Africa. His family moved to the U.S. when he was 9 or 10.
Anywho, he has told me stories before of snacking on pure sugar cane straight from a field. Talk about natural! No wonder the guy doesn’t have as much of a sweet tooth as me now – he got all sugared out as a kid!
So basically, I feel a little more like I’m serving him raw sugar with Zulka. Awesome!
So given that I was trying out some new sugar, a sugar cookie made perfect sense. And I’ve been loving my recent cookie cups so much, I figured why not make another one that’s perfect for spring?! I am loving all the fresh fruit!
And a cookie cup with fruit obviously needs a filling of some sort.
Since I’m such a cheesecake fan, and I LOVED the cheesecake filling in my Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie Cups, I knew it’d be perfect in these as well.
I was so right. These tasted even better in person than in my mind. I love when that happens!
And they really are easy to put together. The cups themselves are nice and quick and made with my favorite cookie dough base. The cheesecake filling is no bake – you just have to mix together three ingredients. And then you top with fresh cut fruit. So little work with such a great reward! And aren’t they just so pretty?!
So get to baking! These Fruit Cheesecake Sugar Cookie Cups are just what you’ve been craving!
And don’t forget to grab your Zulka sugar – it’s delish!
These are the parties I link up to!
