Cheesecake In A Cookie

1st post of the new year, and here I am, self proclaimed non-cookie maker, blogging about yet another cookie. Have I turned over a new leaf? Could be! 


Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies

How about blueberry, cherry, or even a turtle cheesecake cookie...imagine the possibilities! 

Kiffles are a tradition, Snickers Surprise were fun, but these and the Banana Bread Cookies are my fave. It seems wrapping the flavors of a larger treat into the few bites of a cookie has really caught my fancy.

With an abundance of cream cheese in my fridge, I referenced a simple cheesecake cookie recipe that I had bookmarked on Cooks.com. A few minor adjustments to increase the cheesecake factor, and VIOLA!



Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup flour
4 oz of cream cheese, softened 
1 cup sugar

Cream butter and cream cheese. Slowly add sugar, beat until light and fluffy. Add flour, mix well.
  
Using small ice cream scoop, scoop soft dough into balls and roll in graham cracker crumbs.


Place balls on cookie sheet and flatten. Make indention with thumb and fill with raspberry filling.
    

Bake at 375 degrees for 12-13 minutes. Makes approx 18 cookies.


Enjoy!

  5. What an awesome cookie recipe. I can't wait to try a batch of these. And you could really put just about any filling in the center, thanks so much for sharing. And re-posting.
