Halloween Cheesecake Cookies

If Mis7Up created a "monster" with her cheesecake cookies, then my Halloween version fits right in. Original recipe was wonderful but I am neither a big raspberry fan nor a fan of white chocolate, which I used as a substitute in the original recipe—I won't do that again. Whether you choose the raspberry or the orange, this is a yummy, soft cookie.

24 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 1 large egg

  • ½ teaspoon orange extract

  • 1 (17.5 ounce) pouch sugar cookie mix

  • 3 drops orange food coloring, or as desired

  • cup dark chocolate chips (such as Ghirardelli® 60% Cacao)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Beat cream cheese in a bowl with an electric mixer until soft and fluffy. Beat in egg and orange extract until thoroughly combined. Mix in cookie mix, and then food coloring. Fold in chocolate chips.

  3. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets and pat gently to flatten.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are light golden brown, 9 to 12 minutes, switching the racks halfway through. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Cook's Note:

Thank you Mis7up for her original recipe, Incredible Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies on this site.
