Introduction: Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies

About: I am obsessed with Doctor who. I avidly try to addict people to the show. So far I have two people committed to the cause. I love to both cook and bake but I can never find enough people to pawn my baked goods…

Thanksgiving is coming up shortly and I usually make some kind of cheesecake. This year though I thought better of it. My family is known for overproduction of desserts and I wanted something simple, easy to transport, and if any leftover you can pawn them off on others. I was looking for a cheesecake recipe and came upon red velvet cheesecake cookies. I found the perfect thing to make that doesn't end up sitting in my fridge till we all binge out on it one day.

Step 1: Ingredients


  • 1 box of red velvet cake mi
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup canola oil

Cheesecake Filling

  • 4 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

White Chocolate Drizzle

  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips melted

Step 2: Instructions

  1. Using a mixer, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until fully mixed.
  2. Scoop cheesecake mixture into a bowl and put in freezer and freeze for at least 1 hour.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 3:

  1. Before you start making the cookies coat your hands with oil so that your hands do not stick to the dough. (Trust me I found this out after the first cookie)
  2. Take about 1 Tbsp scoop red velvet cookie dough and flatten in your hands. Place a frozen teaspoon of cheesecake filling in the center and wrap the cookie dough around the filling. Gently roll into a ball and place on prepared baking sheet.

Step 4:

  1. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until the cookies begin to crackle. Let them

    cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Remove from baking sheet to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.

  2. Melt the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl or over a double-boiler. Drizzle the white chocolate over the cooled cookies. Let the chocolate set until it hardens. Serve and enjoy!
