Delicious strawberry cheesecake cookies are made with real strawberries and are stuffed with a creamy cheesecake filling.
This amazing strawberry cheesecake cookies recipe is sure to impress! They make a fun twist on classic sugar cookies with a delicious cream cheese filling.
First, make the cream cheese filling. Using a hand mixer, beat the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar in a medium bowl until completely smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
Scoop out tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture and roll into balls. Place the cream cheese balls in a single layer on a small baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and beat until fully incorporated and smooth.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Do not overmix.
