Trinity's Cheesecake Cookie Recipe

Trinity loves to bake. And she's really really good at it. In fact, she's getting an Easy Bake Oven for Christmas, but she doesn't know that yet.

Anyway, she enjoys coming up with new recipes and trying them out. This year, she decided to make cheesecake cookies. Strawberry and raspberry ones to be exact. Boy are they delish! Several friends have asked for the recipe and while Trinity is not one to divulge such information, she decided she didn't mind sharing.

Holidays are the time for sharing after all right?

So here it is, with pictures!


1 egg

1 (8oz) of cream cheese

1 pouch of sugar cookie mix

 Raspberry or Strawberry jelly

Mix up softened cream cheese until smooth. Add egg and mix to blend. Add cookie mix and stir until dough is formed.

With lightly floured hands, take dough and make into a roll. Place roll in refrigerator until cool and semi solid. Take out cookie roll and slice rounds. Place rounds on greased cookie sheet. Add jelly on top in drops.

Bake at 275 to 300 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Trinity says this mimics a cheesecake crust. 

Once done, bring out to cool on a rack and enjoy!
