Sugar Cookie Cup

I made these yummy cookie cups for a party a while back. They came out so beautiful and were a great little hand held dessert idea, that is until it got warm...

I put these yummy Lemon Curd, Strawberry & Chocolate Cream cups together then placed them in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. When I took them out they were still solid and so pretty looking. But then I took them to the party for their debut and as they sat for an hour or so and warmed up a bit, well a lot actually, the juices from the curd & strawberries soaked into the cookies and they fell apart. They still tasted AMAZING, but you had to scoop them with a spoon.

So if you want to use these cookie cups, I'd suggest serving them right away and not letting them sit out of the refrigerator or use a different filling, like custard or lining the bottoms with melted chocolate...oooohhh, gonna have to try that next!
