This is a pampered chef recipe my friend Julie and I tried yesterday. She is just starting to sell Pampered Chef and we experimented with a few things we could make at her parties. These are so delectable, you CANNOT eat just one!
- 1 pkg white cake mix (you’ll only need 9 oz of this, so if you find a small box that’s perfect)
- 1/3 cup all purpose flour
- 2 oz cream cheese, softened
- 4 TBS butter, melted
- 1 1/4 cup thawed cool whip topping
- 3/4 cup prepared lemon curd, divided
- 6 strawberries, hulled and quartered
- 1 TBS water
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a mini muffin tray with non-stick spray. Combine cake mix, flour, cream cheese and melted butter until a soft dough forms.
Spoon about 1 TBS of dough into each muffin cup. Bake 11-13 minutes or until cups are a light golden brown. Take out of oven and set on a cooling rack. Use the Pampered Chef Mini Tart Shaper
to form indentations in the shortcake cups. Let cool 5 minutes, then removed shortcake cups from pan onto serving dish.
For filling, in a clean bowl, mix whipped topping and 1/2 cup of the lemon curd until blended. Add filling to shortcake cups either using a small cookie dough scoop, a spoon, or a resealable plastic bag with the tip snipped off so you can squeeze the filling out into the cups.
Mix remaining 1/4 cup lemon curd with 1 TBS water until blended then spoon over filling in each shortcake cup. Top each with a quartered strawberry.
