All-American Pie Shooters
Festive, fluffy, and filled with the creamiest, most delicious concoction of powdered sugar, cream cheese, and heavy whipping cream, this dessert is equal parts decadent and patriotic!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll out dough into a 12-inch circle. Using a 1½ inch star cookie cutter, cut 24 small stars. Place stars on baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
Beat cream in a mixer until soft peaks form. Set aside.
In a clean mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla, lemon juice, and zest. Whisk half of the whipped cream mixture into cream cheese mixture by hand. Then gently fold in remaining whipped cream.
Crumble up 12 stars and fill the bottom of 12 shot glasses. Pipe cream mixture on top of crumbs. Top with berries, another layer of cream mixture, and garnish with a star.
Note: If you don’t have a decorator’s piping bag, you can use a ziplock bag. Just fill the bag with whipped cream, squeeze out excess air, cut off 1 corner of the bag, and then pip the cream.
