If you can't decide between cookies or cheesecake now you don't have to. This would be good with chocolate chip or peanut butter cookie cups also.

  • Beat butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract together using an electric mixer in a mixing bowl until smooth.

  • Sift 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl. Mix into butter mixture until combined.

  • Place 1 teaspoon of batter into each of the prepared cupcake cups. Sprinkle each cup with a little sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and indent each cup using a teaspoon-sized measuring spoon. Let cool 10 minutes.

  • While cookie cups cool, beat cream cheese, 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, and egg together using an electric mixer in a mixing bowl until smooth. Place a little more than 1 teaspoon of filling into each cookie cup. Sprinkle with sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until filling sets, 10 to 15 minutes more. Let cool completely before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute margarine for butter, if desired.

I think there might be a typo in the directions. In step 4 it says to place 1 tsp in each cupcake cup. After seeing how much dough there was I placed 1 tbs and got 24 cookies rather than 18. I also used red sanding sugar rather than just white sugar. Very tasty and I will make these again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
