Strawberry Cheesecake Chocolate Cookie Cups

So are you an American Idol watcher? I was for the longest time and then a few years ago life got busy and watching two 2-hour shows a week just got long. Plus, the auditions in the beginning had started to get annoying since they’d kind of show one disaster after another.

My parents have remained fans through the years though. They’d told me to give it another shot because they do the auditions differently now. Well, with it being the least year for the show – the “farewell” season – I decided to watch. Time to say goodbye.

Well as it turns out, the folks are right. The auditions are much more focused now on the talented people and their stories now.

And you guys. Not only are there a lot of people who are quite talented, but the stories. They are getting me. Like, every time. I mean seriously, I’m about to burst into tears every time someone tells their story. I can’t even.

I might have to stop watching. All the tears!

Fortunately, these cookie cups are not tear inducing. Unless you cry when a dessert is just that good. It’s totally possible.

These cookie cups are a moist and chewy chocolate cookie cup that’s filled with a no bake strawberry cheesecake. It’s a yummy flavor combo that makes me think of chocolate covered strawberries and is perfect for Valentine’s day.

Cookie cups really are quite easy to make. Just make the cookie dough and bake it in a cupcake pan. I make balls of about 2 tablespoons of cookie dough each and press them into the greased pan. I spread them up the sides of the cups a bit too. They’ll puff up a little when they bake, but I use the underside of a measuring tablespoon to press down a nice lithe dome into the cookie to form a nice cup when they come out of the oven.

The cheesecake is of course no bake. It’s just a matter of mixing a few basic ingredients together and piping them into the cooled cookie up. Easy peasy.

Top these babies with a strawberry and you’ve got quite the presentation. And hey, it’s fresh fruit on top which totally makes these a healthy treat, right? 😉

  • 1 1/4 cups (163g) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (57g) natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup (168g) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (207g) sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 12 oz (339g) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 1/4 cups (259g) powdered sugar
  • 5 tbsp strawberry puree


  1. Coat cupcake pan with non stick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cornstarch and salt in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar together for 2-3 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until well combined.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined. Dough will be thick.
  6. Makes balls of about 2 tbsp of dough. Press cookie dough in bottom and about 1/3-1/2 way up the sides of each cupcake cup, forming a cup shape.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes, then remove to cooling rack to finish cooling. The centers should fall a bit while cooling, but if the centers aren’t cupped enough to add filling, use the underside of a measuring tablespoon to press the center down a bit.

        Assuming the strawberries on top stay good, the cookie and filling should be good for 5-7 days in the fridge.

    What a great treat, my strawberry purée wasn’t tasty enough in the frosting(didn’t want to get it too thin) I put a 1/2 Tbs strawberry jello flavored it very well. I think I cooked my cookies too long they were a little hard but delicious after 2 days.

    1. Lindsay

      It’s just strawberries that have been processed into liquid form. You can use a blender or food processor or something similar. You could try something like strawberry extract or ground up freeze dried strawberries, if you prefer. I just can’t tell you how to go about it since I haven’t made it that way.

  2. Teresa

    I would like to try these and possibly take to work. Can they sit out for awhile at room temperature in the break room or would they have to be refrigerated?

    1. Joby Parker

      Can you fill and refrigerate these overnight and place the strawberries on the next morning?
