Giant Cherry Mousse Sugar Cookie Cups with rich, fresh cherry mousse filling inside a jumbo sugar cookie cup. Easy spring or summer dessert recipe.
After taking several weeks off (due to being away on vacation and…um…laziness) I’m back to the jumbo cookie cup posts this week! Have you missed them as much as I have? So far, I have shared a Carrot Cake version, Chocolate Chip a la mode, Sugar Cookie with Lemon Mousse, Peanut Butter and Jelly, and Pina Colada. Also, probably more that I’m just forgetting right now. So yesterday was one of those days. And by one of those days, I mean a day of many, many kitchen disasters. The joke definitely was on me yesterday. I had to make a Mexican-themed dish for my life group at church and decided on a dessert since I knew there would be so many chip and dip type dishes. I attempted a Tres Leches cake which I had never made before and it came out totally FLAT and useless. No, it wasn’t my baking powder and it wasn’t a forgotten ingredient (like it usually IS). I am blaming this one on my 95 degree kitchen thanks to my broken a/c. I swear I always pick the hottest days of the year to have my oven going for four hours straight! My second attempt at the cake was almost just as flat but rose a little more than the first. Then, the more I looked into it, I realized this was not a cake that was supposed to rise a lot – it looks more of like a cross between a sheet cake and a “regular” cake. Nobody knew the difference and it tasted great so that ended up being a disaster turned good. The mousse for these cookie cups was another story! I realize I’ve rambled on long enough here (I promise I’m not just trying to get out of helping my husband sand and stain the front door right now because I LOATHE sanding), but my first batch of this mousse, which I have made before (!), came out of the piping bag like water running out of a faucet! Again, I’m faulting the hot weather and steamy kitchen for this one. In the end it all worked out and I was able to bring these delicious and pretty cute cookie cups (the ones that survived) to my dear sweet little cousin, Grace, who had surgery on her shoulder over the weekend. #foodbloggerproblems.
Note: You can get a jumbo muffin tin on Amazon if you don’t already have one. They are also great for making bakery style muffins, etc.! I also use these reusable Wilton cupcake decorating bag and decorating tips for piping on the frosting.Sign up for the Wishes & Dishes Newsletter for a fresh serving of content delivered every week to your inbox!
