These strawberry cheesecake cookies are soft and tender. They have a strawberry pudding mix in the cookie, a white chocolate strawberry cheesecake filling, and studded with white chocolate chips. They make a perfect spring and/or summer dessert, but can easily be whipped up any time of the year!
They say that baking for others makes the baker feel just as good, if not better, than the receiver of said baked goods. I pretty much believe that with all of my heart. Whether someone that’s sick, a friend having a bad day, or new parents, when I want to help make things a little better, I start whipping things up to bake. It takes my mind off from things when I’m in the kitchen baking and it warms my heart to see people excited for some fresh baked goods.
While I was testing recipes for my cookie cookbook, I shared my cookies with my friend and her grandma. He grandma was bananas over the cookies. I loved to hear her feedback on the cookies even though I always knew it was going to be something pretty sweet.
Fast forward a few months and here we are with the same grandma just coming home from surgery to remove a lump in her breast. She’s been diagnosed for the second time the breast cancer this month. I wanted to let her know that I was thinking of her so I immediately ran to the kitchen like I always do, grabbed my Bob’s Red Mill All-purpose flour, and started creating a recipe for a cookie with flavors I knew she loved.
That’s how this strawberry cheesecake cookie recipe was created. I was inspired by my friend Amanda’s strawberry cheesecake stuffed cookies recipe. That lady can really take some perfect gooey cookie shots. I’m pretty jealous.
I also made some delicious strawberry macarons. If you’ve never made them, keep an eye out for my detailed recipe. Grab a bag of Bob’s Red Mill almond meal/flour while you wait. They were a whole lot of pink and I didn’t think they were ready for their debut on the blog just yet. Soon though.
I just love how I packaged these cookies up. It’s quite satisfying. I just grabbed a tiny paper doily, a cupcake box, and some baker’s twine. It’s that simple, folks!
