.:White Chocolate Cheesecake Cookies:.

I saw this recipe on a local T.V. program the other day, and visiting teaching gave me the perfect excuse to try it out!

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup shortening
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine softened
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips melted
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups white chocolate chips
  • 8 oz package cream cheese softened
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1-2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 can cherry pie filling (I used raspberry because I'm not a fan of cherry pie filling)
Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine sugars, shortening, butter, eggs, and vanilla in a bowl. Beat until it is blended well.

Melt 1/4 cup white chocolate chips in the microwave.

Add to the bowl and beat until creamy.

Add flour, soda, and salt. Beat until a soft dough forms.

Hand stir in 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips.

In a separate bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy.

Stir in milk until it is absorbed.

Drop spoonfuls of dough on to cookie sheet.

Make an indention with the tip of your finger or a spoon.

Drop a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture into each indention.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. (Mine were more on the 12 side).

Let the cookies cool for 1-2 minutes before removing from the cookie sheet.

Allow cookies to cool and spoon on your filling.

Store in the fridge!
