Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies

Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies | With Lovely,Most times I eat a whole basket of strawberries in one sitting (it’s hard not to when they’re fresh from the farm!), but occasionally I try to savor them. This usually ends in half a basket of mushy strawberries – not ideal for snacking and not enough to make jam. So what’s a girl to do? Make strawberry cheesecake cookies, of course!

These soft, creamy cookies are somewhere between strawberry cheesecake and sugar cookies, and they are completely delicious! They have a fluffy cream cheese base, sweet jam-y chunks of strawberry, and a buttery shortbread crust.

Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 1/2 c chopped strawberries
  • 1 c shortbread cookie or graham cracker crumbs

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter, cream cheese, and sugar on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about two minutes.
  2. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until well-combined.
  3. Reduce speed to low, slowly add flour and mix until well-combined.
  4. Stir in strawberries and refrigerate the dough until firm, at least 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 375°, line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and place cookie crumbs in a shallow dish.
  6. Scoop the dough into 1 1/2″ balls, then roll the balls in the cookie crumbs. Place them two inches apart on the lined baking sheets and bake until golden brown around the edges, 12-14 minutes.
  7. Cool for at least five minutes on the sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
