Oh my goodness sweet teeth, it has been awhile!  I travelled to San Antonio for work last week and then my family was in town for the weekend and I have hardly even looked at a computer, which has been nice, but I miss you!  Just in time for spring, I have a sweet, fruity treat for you today!  I just couldn’t get enough of that Strawberry Buttercream that I shared with you a couple of weeks ago, so I had to find another way to incorporate it.  I bring you Strawberry Cookie Cups with Strawberry Buttercream.

These Strawberry Cookie Cups just scream spring time.  Even if the weather won’t cooperate quite yet, the vibrant strawberry flavor that is incorporated into each component of this treat will get you excited for the days of farmers’ market and leisurely walks on those perfect summer nights.

I used a mini muffin pan for the Strawberry Cookie Cups because I wanted them to be 2-bites of self-contained goodness.  They would also be adorable garnished with a slice of fresh strawberry.
