Cheesecake Stuffed Cookies

Cheesecake filling makes everything. It makes the dessert (or snack) tastier and more flavorful. These Cheesecake Stuffed Cookies are a good example. Paired with chocolate chips that are folded in the cookie dough, these cookies get both kids and adults hooked. I’m hosting a game day viewing party this weekend, and adding them to the menu. As my kids get so much fun with them, hope that they keep my guests satisfied.

Ingredients

  • FOR COOKIES
  • 1 1/4 c. (2 1/2 sticks) butter, softened

  • 2 c. semisweet chocolate chips

  • 2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour

  • 1 c. packed brown sugar

  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar

  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt

  • FOR CREAM CHEESE FILLING
  • 12 oz. cream cheese, softened

  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar

  • Pinch kosher salt

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF and prepare a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • To make cheesecake filling: Add cream cheese, powdered sugar, and salt to a small bowl. Mix well until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator until slightly firm, at least 30 minutes.
  • To make cookie dough: Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Slowly beat in vanilla extract and eggs.
  • Gather mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Stir into butter-sugar mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Place dough in refrigerator to firm up, 30 to 35 minutes.
  • To make cookies: Scoop about a tablespoon of cookie dough and flatten into a pancake-like circle. Spoon about 2 teaspoons cheesecake filling in the center.
  • Form another tablespoon of cookie dough into a flat circle and place on top of filling. Pinch edges together to seal, then roll filled dough into a ball.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly golden. Let cool completely and serve.
