Perfect Holiday Cookies
Red velvet cake is so pretty and perfect for the holiday season. We all know my heart belongs to cookies, not cake, so I decided it was time for me to create a red velvet cookie…and not just any red velvet cookie, but a Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookie. This cookie is the cookie of all cookies. If you think your holiday baking list is set, think again. You have to make these cookies! They will wow everyone who takes a bite!
Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies
I normally don’t bake with boxed mixes, but I cheated and used a red velvet cake mix to make these cookies. I know, gasp! I think you will forgive me when you taste the cookies:) I did doctor the cookies up by adding a creamy cheesecake filling and a white chocolate drizzle. No one will ever know these are cake mix cookies. It is our little secret:)
You do need to chill the dough and filling before you bake these red velvet cookies, so make sure you plan ahead. I promise the cookies are worth the wait.
The cookies are almost too pretty to eat, but when you get to that surprise cheesecake filling, you will forget all about the beautiful cookie. You will want to eat another one and another one!
Red Velvet & Cheesecake…Mmmmm
If you are a Cheesecake Factory fan, chances are you have had their Red Velvet Cheesecake. These cookies remind me of that cheesecake, but of course they are better because they are cookies:) I made the cookies giant size because it’s the holiday season and indulging is A-OK in my book:) I am going to leave a plate of these cookies out for Santa. I know he will leave me everything on my wish list after he takes one bite of these Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies. They are the best holiday cookie ever! Promise me you will make them!
