Petite Macaroon Cups

Recipe from

I've had this recipe forever and just got around to trying them out and this is definitely a keeper.  Did you know that you can make flaky pie type crust from cream cheese?  These are nice and bite size but don't be fooled about the bite size because you'll find yourself 5 macaroons later still popping them in your mouth.  For the longest time Macey kept asking me to make macaroni pies and I couldn't figure out what she was talking about.  So the official name for these per my 4 year old is "Macaroni Pies".  If anyone dares to try the chocolate version let me know how they turn out.  They suggested to divide into 12 balls and that sounded time consuming so after I divided them into four quarters I shaped them into logs.  I kept the one I was working with out and used a knife to evenly divide it into 12 portions.  The other 3 logs I threw back in the fridge so the dough would stay firm until I needed to use them.
