Grinch Sugar Cookie Bites – make these cute little cookie bites in no time! A sugar cookie base filled with an easy no bake cheesecake and decorated with sprinkles. A fun and easy Christmas cookie to add to your cookie plate!
When it comes to the holidays I love baking. It can be just about anything, I just love to have lots of different cookies, candies, and treats around. Even it is just a small group, I am all about having as many different cookies as possible!
And because I like to have as many treats as possible, some of them have to be super easy. Reese’s Fudge is probably our number one requested recipe every year, and there is no baking involved, so that one is definitely on repeat! And these Grinch Cookies are just too darn cute not to be on the cookie tray!
These Sugar Cookie Bites can be made with your favorite Sugar Cookie dough or you can take a shortcut and use the store bought sugar cookie mix for these. They are just that easy!
The filling is super easy no bake cheesecake that is colored green for the Grinch theme. Then you just add a few festive sprinkles and they are done. The kids will go crazy for them, and you will love how easy they are to make!
What You’ll Need
- Sugar Cookie Mix
- Cream Cheese
- Vanilla Pudding Mix
- Green Food Coloring
You can easily make your own cookie dough and just follow the baking instructions, but if you want to use a little help from the store during this crazy season, that is ok too!
How To Make Grinch Sugar Cookie Bites
- Start by making the sugar cookie dough. Mix together the sugar cookie mix, with butter and and the egg until is forms a dough. Add in sprinkles and mix until they are evenly combined.
- Scoop balls of dough into a mini muffin tin, using your thumb to press a little well in the center. Bake until the cookies are golden.
- Remove the cookies from the oven and immediately use a small spoon or the handle of a wooden spoon to press down in the center to create a well for the cheesecake filling. Let the cookies cool completely.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until it is fluffy.
- In a separate bowl whisk together the pudding mix and milk until it is well combined.
- Add the pudding mixture to the cream cheese and whip until it is well incorporated. Add in food coloring and mix until it is evenly blended.
- Spoon the cheesecake mixture into a plastic ziploc bag. Cut off the top and fill the cookie cups.
- Decorate the cheesecake with sprinkles.
These sugar cookie cups do need to be stored in the fridge. Ideally you want to fill the cookies the same day you want to serve them. They will get a little soggy if you fill them too far ahead.
You can make the cookies ahead of time, and the filling ahead of time and just assemble when you are ready to serve. The filling will last in the fridge for a few days. The cookies will last in an air tight container for up to 4 days before you fill them.
