The Best Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies
Have you every tried adding instant pudding to a cookie recipe, so they become super moist and flavourful? This strawberry cheesecake cookie recipe uses instant cheesecake pudding for its cheesecake component, which makes these cookies slightly soft and very decadent. The cheesecake mix mingled with finely chopped strawberries and white chocolate chips, makes these cookies exceptional, and so does the bursts of beautiful red and white. This strawberry cookie recipe feels like the epitome summer treat because it’s one of the few times of the year where you can find exceptionally ripe and juicy strawberries at farmer’s markets or your local grocery store. If you happen to find quality strawberries at any other time of year, be sure to bake this strawberry cheesecake cookies recipe.
If you’re looking for an easy homemade cookies recipe, this recipe for strawberry cookies really can’t be beaten. This easy strawberry dessert is essentially based on the traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe by using a combination of butter, brown and white sugars, and eggs, but the add-ins of instant pudding mix, fresh strawberries, and white chocolate are what sets it apart. These cookies taste almost like a cheesecake but are much easier to make. While cheesecakes are usually baked for a long time at a low temperature and require a significant amount of chill time, these easy cookies take minutes to prepare and under fifteen minutes to bake. These cheesecake bites are tangy and sweet, which is just what you would expect from a strawberry cheesecake recipe, so don’t worry about taking the time to make traditional cheesecake when you can make these cookies instead.
These strawberry cheesecake cookies are suitable to make at almost any time of year, since you can use fresh farm stand strawberries in the summer, and in the winter when fresh aren’t as good and more expensive, you can substitute with thawed, frozen strawberries. If using frozen strawberries, just make sure to thaw them on a paper-towel lined baking sheet and dry the strawberries as much as possible so that they don’t discolour your cookies. You can also mix some flour in with the strawberries just before adding to your strawberry cheesecake recipe since this will soak up some of the excess juices from the berries. If you prefer your cheesecake with other fruits, feel free to substitute for any other fresh berry.
This strawberry cookie recipe may not be what you would think of serving at your Christmas holiday table, but you can definitely use this easy cookie recipe to stun guests at other holidays throughout the year and make this recipe one of your go-to holiday cookie recipes. Just think about what these cheesecake cookies would look like adorning your Easter or Mother’s Day table, with the bright pops of red and white colours. Wherever you choose to serve these, the refreshing flavour of strawberries and studs of white chocolate chips will please anyone.
