SF: Edible Cups

Hosted by Happy to Design

Trying to fit in some post here while I'm still awake... This one's from back in April.

Hosted by "Designs by Gollum"

Today is "Spring Fling" Foodie Friday!
What did you make?

First of all, I want to thank everyone who took the time to visit my dear friend Ann (Hansonpatch) of "Three Little Girls" yesterday during both Thursday memes. We became friends a while back in Arizona, just before we moved here to Texas. She's a fairly new blogger and she loves getting visitors as much as I do! ;-) She is a wonderful woman and mother like all of you and she is a perpetual learner. She also just recently decided that she will homeschool her lovely girls. (I wanted to do that but am afraid my children are way into social things right now that they might hang me upside down over the notion. LOL) That means everytime she meets someone, she makes it a point to learn something from that person.

Yesterday, you just filled her mind with awesome tablescaping ideas! I bet she was just in heaven! You all rock!

And again, an armful of thanks to all who participated in the Thrifty Thursday normally hosted by Leigh. She would be thrilled to know that so many of us found great deals on such awesome treasures! I can't wait until she comes back blogging away about her vacay adventures!

To Cathy of The Stylish House, thank you for the award! You are so sweet to remember me. I will feature it with my Sunday Favorite post for Chari's meme! I can't wait to do all of these wonderful things to complete this week!

What does one do when there's simply no time and a hungry family is starting to revolt? You bribe them with an easy but deadly yummy dessert!

Got kids that would rather not use a plate to hold their dessert? Make the container edible!

I call this my "Sweetly Kissed" Biscuit Cups because... it is easy to make and oh so yummy! Each biscuit dough disc from a can of Pilsbury Grands were flattened and molded on to a cupcake pan and filled with a delectable cream cheese filling:

Preheat oven to 400 deg

"Sweetly Kissed" Filling

1 brick of Kraft Neufchatel cheese or 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp cinnamon
a small pinch of salt

Blend together until well mixed. Taste and adjust.

Spoon into each biscuit cup dough and bake for 10 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned.

Take it out and transfer onto a cookie sheet. Bake for another 2-3 minutes on 400 deg.

Serve slightly warm topped with a tall tower of low-fat whipped cream and cinnamon sprinkles. Any kid can just grab it and eat it without fear of needing to stay put. Why because they'll eat the cream off first and eat inside out! Yum! Of course, you can do the following presentation if you are a proper consumer. (Nah, after I took this picture, I ate a strawberry, took a bite while holding the "cup" in one hand, strawberry, a bite and so forth and so on... You think you can handle that?) :P

I also guarantee you that when you take a bite of the whole filling and biscuit with or without whipped cream is like a "sweet kiss"! (mwah!)

You like the plate? You've all seen it! It's Corelle's "Shadow Iris". I've had this set since 1997 and they all still look fairly new even with three voracious eaters I call my children. ;-)


TABLESCAPING IDEA: (Brain had an idea burst) No matching placemats for a big table? No sweat, color coordinate! We tend to pick up the same shade or hue values so it doesn't matter, especially if you have an all white dinnerware, it looks modern, fun and chic!

Thanks for hosting, Chari! Hugs to all who visited!


  1. Oh I love the look of those sweet kisses! Yummmm....

    I laughed at your saying your girls would hang you upside down if you home schooled them. I used to THREATEN my children with homeschooling, as in "If you don't clean up your rooms, I will HOME SCHOOL YOU!" They considered that the ultimate horror -- missing out on school!

    Must have worked - -they are both in grad school now, on fellowships. And I have peace. . . . :-)

    Have a great weekend, my friend!

  2. Chandy, these look soooooo good. I love the recipe. What a great idea. Hugs, Marty

  3. Delicious kisses! So nice to see you here, Chandy! I have missed a lot of your posts....Christine

  4. Thanks ladies! Hope you're all having a great Sunday!

  5. Hi Girlfriend...

    So happy to have you join in with the fun of Sunday Favorites this week, my friend! Ohhh...what a fabulous recipe! You're absolutely right, these look divine...I'm definitely going to try them! I love the cheesy cream filling...yummy! They sound pretty easy...which is a prerequisite for me! Hehe! Thanks so much for sharing this fabulous dessert with us today!!!

    Warmest wishes,
    PS...hope that things are "settling in" at your place finally...getting the kids back to school and things back on schedule is no easy feat!

  6. Hi Chari, I came by to see if you have a new tablescape I thought since the kids are back to school, you will have more time blogging. I hope you can join me for SS on Sat.....Christine

  7. Chandy, this looks delicious, and sounds so easy. I've saved the recipe to try. Thanks for sharing it. laurie

  8. I will HOME SCHOOL YOU!" They considered that the ultimate horror -- missing out on school!

Niceties first

HELLO AND WELCOME to this blog dedicated to my obsession of tablescapes, and ONLY TABLESCAPES!
That means that whatever I post will be redirected to tablescapes or you will see tablescapes or the dishes and glassware that I used AND wish to use.
I hope you like you what you see; but you can't do that unless you take the tour- the TABLESCAPE TOUR that's on the side bar! I'd also love to take you on my adventures on finding great dinnerwares to display and use while leaving some serious change in your pocket, so stay a while and see all of my great deals!
Wanna know the reason behind the madness, too? Then make sure to read, Why this blog for my philosophy.
