Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies taste just like the real thing. The cookie tastes just like the graham cracker crust of a cheesecake. As for the cheesecake frosting, well… it tastes just like cheesecake filling. The fresh strawberry on top only adds to the vibrant and fresh flavor of the cookie.
I love making cookies because they are faster to make than most desserts and you get a lot of cookies. It takes a lot less time to whip up a batch of Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies than it does to make a Strawberry Cheesecake.
I think you will be surprised at just how much these cookies taste like a freshly baked Strawberry Cheesecake. They are such an elegant looking cookie that they would be perfect to serve at a shower or wedding. Yet they are versatile enough that you could serve them at any casual get together.
So instead of slaving away in the kitchen all day making a dessert for your next party, whip up a batch of Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies. Then with all the time you just saved yourself, you can put your feet up and relax!
