Lemonade Shortcake Cups

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!

Ingredients:

  • 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.
Makes 24.
