These Boston Cream Cookie Cups are delicious! Everyone that's tried them loved them. They are my entry for the Betty Crocker Bake Life Sweeter Cookie Contest. I even made them for a bake sale and they sold out! They are my kids favorite. :0) You can also vote for them at I also wanted to add that these can also be made with fat free cream cheese and sugar-free/fat-free instant pudding.
