Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake Cookies

Cheesecake cookies are soft and rich and taste just like a bite sized chocolate cheesecake!

A little cheesecake packed into a chocolate cookie!

A few friends of mine have declared this day Cheesecake Day.  I was asked to join in the fun, but here’s the rub; I don’t care for cheesecake.  Weird, I know.  I think it has a lot to do with the cheesecake my mom made when I was a kid.   It was the kind with chunks of pineapple and large curd cottage cheese.  Just what you want in a dessert right?  After those first few experiences with cheesecake I decided cheesecake just wasn’t worth my time.

I have tasted good cheesecake.  I’ve decided I still don’t care for it.  Let me put it another way.  It’s not as though I don’t like cheesecake, I just prefer desserts with frosting like cupcakes or cake, but I’ll certainly settle for anything with crumbs like brownies or cookies.  You see where this is headed right?  Why not take something I am wild about like cookies and add a cheesecake twist!  These cheesecake cookies are truly the best of both worlds. The cream cheese in these cookies makes them soft, rich, cake-like bites of heaven that melt in your mouth like a good cheesecake should.  They are so incredible right out of the oven but they are just as good an hour later, 3 hours later, the next morning and so on.  I confess, I could not stop eating these cheesecake cookies!

I hope salad day is the next week.  After devouring all these sinful cheesecake cookies, a huge green salad would probably do me some good!

  4. I wish you shared my love for cheesecake, but at least you make up for with these yummy cookies!!!

  5. Oh my! If my first experience with cheesecake consisted of cottage cheese and pineapple, I’d probably run the other way, too! These cookies are the perfect happy medium.

  6. Whoa, do these look incredible!! My chocoholic family thanks you for this recipe! But I think I’m going to need a salad day next week, too!

  7. I don’t think I’ve seen cheesecake cookies before although I have made cookies with cream cheese. Anyhoo, your cookies look so soft and rich no wonder you couldn’t stop eating them!
    Thanks for sharing and for joining us Tanya
