Lemon Cheesecake Cookie Bites


Every Easter I make a lemon cheesecake and it is awesome, but this year I decided to switch it up a bit.  I have been making these little cheesecake bites.  It is a no bake cheesecake filling piped into sugar cookie shells, and they are amazing!  I have done a few flavors, Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry and now it is time for lemon!

Lemon Cheesecake Cookie Bites, yum!

These little bites are addicting and my family always goes nuts for them so I know they will be loving it Easter when I stroll in with a big platter of these babies!

The recipe could not be easier.  I start with a bought sugar cookie dough and smush them into a mini muffin tin.

While they cool I make the filling.

I prepare some lemon pudding (with a little less milk than it calls for) and just mix that together with some room temperature cream cheese.

Pipe that filling into the cups and voila, an amazingly delicious dessert everyone will love.

The slightly chewy sugar cookie cups go so well with the luscious lemon filling, match made in heaven!

    Those look delish! Unfortunately I’m allergic lemon so I think I’ll try this out with some raspberry pudding and topping it with a fresh raspberry.

    Do the lemon cheesecake cookies need to be refrigerated? I need to transport them for several hours to where I am going and will not be able to refrigerate the cookies even when I get there.

      They do need to be refrigerated due to the milk in the pudding and cream cheese. After refrigeration they are good for about 4 hours before needing to go back in the fridge :)
