Cheesecake Cookies

Updated: Dec 15, 2022


  • 8 oz. cream cheese @room temperature

  • 1/2 cup butter (one stick) @room temperature

  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Powdered Sugar (optional)


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

2. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter together at high speed until fluffy and smooth; 1-2 minutes. Add sugar to the butter mixture and beat until fully incorporated and fluffy; 1-2 minutes more. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

3. In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the batter mixture and mix just until incorporated. Do not over-mix.

4. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart; batter will be sticky.

5. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes. Cookies should be light in color, not browned, and just starting to brown on the bottom.

6. Cool cookies and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

7. Once cooled, sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
