If you’re looking at the screen, scratching your head, and thinking “heeeeeey lady… haven’t I seen these EXACT COOKIES somewhere before…?”, you, my friend, are absolutely correct! This is an old recipe of mine that I decided to dig up and bake again. You know… for research 😉
But, really! I do occasionally like to re-make old recipes I’ve posted just to see if there are any kinks that need working out. I only want to give you guys the best! And if that means making and re-making soft, chewy, heavenly cheesecake cookies, I will do it.
It’s a hard job… but someones gotta do it 😉 I’m glad it’s me. These cookies ———> tasty town central!!!
The good news: These cookies are exactly as amazing as I remembered them to be!
A few tips before you make these delectable treats!
1) A couple of my lovely readers made these cookies and found them to be totally delish but a little less sweet then they were expecting. After a few test runs, I found the sugar amount indicated in the recipe to be completely sufficient in sweetness. That said, if you have a MAJOR sweet tooth, you may always add a 1/4 cup more. It doesn’t hurt them one bit 😉
2) The cookies come out of the oven SOFT. And I mean sooooooooooooft, you guys. Please (please please pretty pretty please) just let them chill out on the pan, untouched, for at least an hour. I know… waiting is so hard. Trust me I know! But the slow cool on the hot pan is how these cookies get their chewy exterior and soft, cheesecake-like interior. Totally worth the wait!
3) Um… GO MAKE THESE NOW! You can thank me later 😉
