  • 1 pkg 24 cookie count refrigerated sugar cookie dough, at room temperature
  • 1 jar lemon curd or use your own homemade version, you effortless person, you
  • Powdered sugar for dusting (optional but recommended)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 24-cavity miniature muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Using your fingers, gently flatten each ball of dough and press it into each muffin cavity, going up the sides of the cavity to create a small bowl of dough. Repeat with remaining dough and bake for approx. 10-12 minutes or until the edges are light brown.
  • Allow the sugar cookie cups to cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes. While they cool, very gently press your thumb or the handle of a wooden spoon into the center of each cookie cup to create a well; this will be filled with the curd. Once the cups have cooled some, use a knife to run along the edges of the cups to gently lift them out of the pan. Allow the cups to cool on a wire rack completely.
  • Once cups are cooled, fill with about a teaspoon of lemon curd. Top with a dusting of powdered sugar if you'd like. Serve immediately.
