Cheesecake Cookies

 Cheesecake? Good. Cookies? Good. Cheesecake cookies? Amazing. Yes, they are a bit of work, but it's so worth it. I'm really out of words to describe the cookies so I'll just let pictures do the talking.

Cheesecake Cookies

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
2 1/2 sticks butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 cans (20-ounce) cherry pie filling (or your favorite kind.)

1. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In another bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, butter and sugar until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until incorporated. Reduce speed to low and add the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Refrigerate dough until firm, at least 30 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat liners. Place graham cracker crumbs in a shallow dish.

3. Roll the dough into 1 1/2-inch balls, then roll the balls in graham cracker crumbs. Place balls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Using a tablespoon measure, make an indentation in the center of each ball. Place 3 cherries in the dimple. Bake until golden brown around the edges, 12 to 14 minutes. Cool for five minutes on the sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal
but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up
my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or
suggestions? Thank you

Love this recipe! I also use chocolate wafer cookies or ginger snaps to roll dough in. I also use fresh fruit macerated in sugar and lemon and gently heat and thicken with a little cornstarch. Just use your imagination and create a luscious dessert!
