Lemon Sugar Cookie Cups with Strawberry Frosting are just about the cutest Easter sweet you could make. So fun and festive!

I can’t believe we’re already headed into spring. Before you know it, Easter will be here, and with it, all the delicious ham and hash brown casserole a girl could eat.
But who am I kidding? The real story is what we’re eating for dessert, and I’ve decided what we’re eating are these Lemon Sugar Cookie Cups with Strawberry Frosting.
Sweet, tart lemon flavor always brings spring to mind for me. Just one taste and I’m ready for sweet iced tea-lemonade combos, lemon meringue pie, and anything else made with lemon I can get my hands on, all season long.
Elle and I were talking about what color she wants to dye her Easter eggs this year, and she settled on yellow and pink, which lead me to these cookie cups as a matching Easter treat. That the cookie flavor is decidedly lemon just adds to the festivity.
Making sugar cookies from scratch is super simple. While I’m no stranger to a recipe shortcut, I wanted these cookies to be special, and 100% homemade.
They’re baked up using Wholesome Organic Cane Sugar, giving them that sweet “blonde” hue you see here. It’s Fair Trade too, which I love. Fair Trade is a way to guarantee that the farmers harvesting sugar cane are supported fairly – and paid fairly, for their crops.
I used Wholesome Organic Wild White Strawberry Frosting to top each little cookie cup (before following with a little sprinkling of sugar). With no artificial colors or flavors, I’m definitely digging this frosting shortcut as a new mainstay for topping cakes, cookies, brownies, and even whoopie pies.
It’s Non-GMO project verified, with a smooth, spreadable texture. It’s also Fair Trade Certified, gluten free, kosher, and vegan, making it perfect for just about anybody. Truly wholesome, from top to bottom.
Although we love the frosting straight from the container, Elle really wanted it to be pink, so I added a bit of homemade, fresh strawberry puree to naturally color it Elle’s favorite shade of pastel pink.
There’s a whole range of Wholesome products perfect for everyone in your family. From the Organic Cane Sugar I used here to Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Stevia for those trying to remain sugar-free, and even Organic Light Corn Syrup for making ganache shiny.
You can find them at any of these grocery stores: Whole Foods Market, HEB, Meijer, Giant Eagle, Fresh Market, Vitamin Cottage Natural Grocers, Earth Fare, Spartan Nash, Fairway, Festival Foods, New Seasons, Woodman’s, Fresh Thyme, Moms Market and herb.com, and they’re easy to spot with that fun and whimsical Wholesome purple logo.
Elle thinks these cookie cups are the best thing since sliced bread, I’ll tell you that much. She calls them cookie cakes (instead of cupcakes), and I am not going to correct her. Because that’s pretty much the cutest thing ever.
Make your own cute cookie cakes (or cups) for Easter. You’ve just got to try this Wholesome Wild White Strawberry Frosting – it’s absolutely delicious! And there’s even a coupon you can access through Wholesome’s website!

Man! Looks so good. But I would have to 86 the Strawberry and replace with Blueberry. My personal preference. Live seeing your posts. Thank you.

Hello - You could use any homemade strawberry frosting recipe that you like instead of the brand that I used. You might check out this one: https://www.mybakingaddiction.com/strawberry-frosting-recipe/. Hope this helps! Happy baking. Jamie

I can’t wait to try this. My mouth started salivating by seeing this only. Cookies are my favorite and any type of cakes is great for me. I love to try different types of cakes and this is kind of different one which I haven’t tried yet. So I’m definitely going to try this soon and will definitely let you know, how it turned out. I never regretted any moment that came to your blog!

They look gorgeous but you definitely can't get the frosting in the UK. Would a buttercream or cream cheese frosting work as well?

Hi, Fiona! I haven't tried these with buttercream or cream cheese frosting, but I bet they'd be great. Let me know the results!
