Raspberry Dessert Cups

I just can’t get over how easy these raspberry dessert cups are! You all know I love an easy dessert. And, totally honest you can’t get much easier than this!

I like to think of myself as the queen of mini foods. I just love appetizers (okay, someone tell me how many times I’ve said that before?! But it’s the truth!) and small bites of any kind.

Throw in a make-ahead option and I’m sold.

I recently threw a mini French-inspired catch up session with my girlfriends and this was one of the nibbles I made. We all love raspberry desserts – especially raspberry lemon desserts!

I usually tend to lean more towards making a pie or tart, but I didn’t have much time to plan for this and thought I’d throw something new together.

These little bites come out ah-mazing! Not only are they the cutest, but I was able to combine one of our favorite flavor combos without much thought at all.

Plus, I was able to semi make them ahead of time.

How to make-ahead raspberry dessert cups

There are only three components to these mini tarts (are these a tart? I don’t know but I like to be fancy like that, lol).

  • Phyllo cups which you can get in the freezer section at your local grocery store.
  • Fresh Raspberries
  • Lemon stabilized whipped cream
  • And, mint garnish which is totally optional

So, yea these are super basic raspberry desserts. And, yes you could totally make these right before your party or when you serve them. They literally take maybe 10 minutes to put together.

BUT, I say if you can kill a few minutes of prep time, do it. Especially if you have multiple dishes or components you are serving.

Since the whipped cream is stabilized, you can make it the day before, cover in plastic wrap, and let it chill in the fridge until ready to serve. Just whip it by hand a few times and add it to the cups.

You can assemble the cups about an hour ahead of time, just pop them into the fridge until ready to serve.

How to make a raspberry dessert

  • The main component is the whipped cream, so make this first. Just whip the cream to soft peaks, either by hand or with an electric hand mixer. Be careful not to over whip (unless you want to make butter!)
  • Add the powdered sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, and lemon extract to the cream. Whip to combine until medium to stiff peaks form. I liked this cream a little on the looser side but whip until the consistency you prefer.
  • Fill phyllo cups with the cream, top with a fresh raspberry (or use any berry or fruit you like here! Make this your own.) and a mint leaf for garnish, optional. Serve immediately or place in the fridge for up to one hour.
