Cookie Tarts with Cherry Pudding

This recipe is for delectable Cookie Tarts with Cherry Pudding, a perfect blend of rich, chocolaty goodness and the tart sweetness of cherries. It starts with a crust made from Loren’s Chocolate Brownie Cookie Dough, baked into perfect cup shapes to hold the filling. The filling is a creamy chocolate pudding mixed with cherry preserves and topped with a fresh or frozen cherry for a burst of flavor. The tarts are then finished with a homemade whipped topping, a light and fluffy cream enhanced with mascarpone, sugar, and vanilla extract. The process involves baking the cookie dough in a muffin pan, filling the baked cups with pudding and cherry preserves, and topping them with the whipped cream mixture. This recipe yields 24 delicious tarts, ideal for gatherings or as a special treat.

Next spoon in the pudding, filling each cup the rest of the way. Place a cherry on top of the pudding. Top with pre-made whipped topping, or follow the next step to make from scratch.
