I didn’t realize how much I truly loved cheesecake until I made my Lime Cheesecake Shooters, which were absolutely amazing! I decided that I needed to create another quick and easy cheesecake recipe that was individual sized. These Lavender & Lemon Cheesecake Cookie Cups are made using cookie dough and a super simple lavender & lemon cheesecake recipe that will have you looking for more.
Lavender & Lemon Cookie Cups
In order to make this recipe super simple, I used Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough. I simply greased the inside of a cupcake tray and then lined it with the sugar cookie dough. The sugar cookie cup is the perfect way to package the lavender & lemon cheesecake. The cup was thick enough that it didn’t get soft holding the cheesecake. Plus, it added a bit more sweetness to the cheesecake.
For the lavender & lemon cheesecake I used my Young Living Essential Oils because they are quick and easy to flavor a cheesecake recipe. I love using my Young Living Essential Oils in desserts because they are therapeutic grade and they just add the perfect amount of flavor. Plus, who doesn’t love lavender and lemon for summer.
Since we love our oils so much we decided that it wouldn’t be fair to talk about them without offering our readers an opportunity to enjoy the oils as well. So, to kick off May we’re running a fabulous promotion to get you started. The starter kit that we are offering this month also comes with a ton of educational material so that you know how to get the most out of your oils. Find out more HERE!
Not all essential oils are edible. Due to lack of purity, 98% of essential oils sold should NOT be ingested. An edible essential oil will be labeled “therapeutic-grade” and have a “Supplement Facts” box on the label showing the nutritional value – do NOT use just any brand of essential oil for cooking/flavoring foods. Be sure to use pure oils from reliable sources, not synthetic scents or flavorings.
