This recipe for Raspberry Lime Cookie cups is not only pretty to look at, it tastes delicious.
This recipe that I created for a summertime party is light, refreshing, and looks so pretty on your serving tray. It is a winning combination of sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, and raspberry preserves, topped with a fresh raspberry and lime slice.
Raspberry Lime Cookie Cups
- 1 (16.5oz) roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- 1/4 cup crumbs from graham cracker ready made pie crust (may use graham cracker crumbs)
- 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
- 6 oz cream cheese, softened
- 3 medium limes, washed
- 1/4 cup red raspberry preserves
- 24 medium fresh raspberries, washed and dry
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray 2 (12 cup) mini cheesecake pans with removable bottoms, with no stick cooking spray.
- Break up and crumble the cookie dough into a large mixing bowl. Add the graham cracker crumbs and combine well, using hands. Divide the dough into 24 equal size balls, about 1-inch each. Press a ball into the bottom of each cup to form a crust. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven to a wire cooling rack. Using the end of a wooden spoon, make a slight indentation in each cookie cup.
- Meanwhile, combine the sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese in a medium size saucepan. Cut 6 slices from one of the limes (1/4 inch each). Squeeze the juice from the remaining part of that lime into the saucepan. Set the slices aside. Zest the remaining 2 limes and set this aside. Cut each of the limes in half and squeeze the juice from them into the saucepan with sweetened condensed milk. Cook the milk, cream cheese and lime juice over a low heat, stirring constantly until mixture begins to bubble and starts to thicken; about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat.
- Spoon equal amounts of the filling (about 1 Tablespoon) onto each cookie crust. Top each with 1/2 teaspoon preserves. Using a toothpick, lightly swirl into the filling. Chill pans for 1 hour. Loosen the cookie cups around the edges with a small plastic knife. Return to refrigerator for 1 hour.
- Carefully, remove the cookie cups from pan by pushing the bottom disc upward with fingers. Remove disc from bottom of crust using a butter knife. Transfer to a serving platter. Cut each lime slice into 4 wedges. Garnish each cookie cup with a lime wedge pointed into the filling, and a raspberry. Sprinkle lime zest over the cookie tops. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- I like to use a ready made graham cracker crust instead of the plain graham cracker crumbs because it is a little moister and has a sweeter taste. Plain crumbs works fine though.

I decided that this summer I will get the grandchildren together, as their busy schedules permit and do actual cooking classes.

I have always loved to be in the kitchen creating recipes with my grandchildren. They know how I love to cook, bake, and enter cooking contests and I think that excitement has been passed on to them. They have been the inspiration for many of my contest recipes.
When they are small, we move a stool over to the kitchen counter or bring their small table into the kitchen. As they grow older, they have taken over the kitchen at times. They will even call me to tell me an idea they had for a recipe. See how much fun we have baking and cooking together!

What a “sweet” day this is for sure! Baking and decorating sugar cookies is one of my favorite things to do. I grew up doing this with my mother, carried on the tradition for my children, and now do this for my grandchildren.
Here is a previous blog post I did on decorated sugar cookies and the recipe I have used for many years. Sugar Cookies for all Occasions
Have a great day and hopefully eat a sugar cookie with someone you love
I believe that everyone will agree the baby showers of today are nothing like what we had with our children. They were hosted by a close friend or family member and consisted of serving cake, punch, and finger foods; playing games, and opening gifts. Men did not attend the showers.
It is common now for the expectant parents to both attend a cook-out or dinner to celebrate the shower.

Most people dread turning “60” but this was a celebration I was happy to see. Last week my husband Bob (alias Grandpa Bob or Papaw Bob) turned 60 and we celebrated with a 3 day party at a lake resort we love with 80 of our closest friends and family members.
My son and his family flew in from Co; my daughter and her family came from NC; my brother and sister-in-law came from KY.
Two and a half years ago, Bob was going thru a serious illness and we are so thankful that our prayers were answered and he beat this. I wanted to give us something positive to hold onto, so at that time I started planning this party. There were a lot of behind the scene details I had to work out and I felt like I had planned a wedding, but I am so happy with the results.

One of my daughters hosted a large Easter Egg Hunt at her home along with a fishing derby and fish fry. They have a beautiful, large lake on their property. Everyone brought food and the weather was perfect with beautiful sunshine.
Sugar Cookies are the treat they always want me to make.
Here is the tried & true recipe for the Decorated Sugar Cookies .
I also put together the cupcake/candy treat bags.
Here are the instructions to do these cute bags. I use the same method as for the Halloween Treat Bags but change the candy for the occasion.
Off to the egg hunt with some sweet treats for the sweeties.
