12 Days of Cookies: Cream Cheese Cookies
These fluffy, crumbly cookies melt in your mouth — but not before hitting you with a triple dose of cream cheese. First, it gets mixed into the batter. Then, frozen chunks are folded into the dough (and won’t disappear into the cookie during baking). Finally, it’s whipped into the glaze for a finishing tangy bite.
We topped the cookies with lime zest and minced cranberries for a Christmas color palette, but the topping ideas are limitless — consider your favorite cheesecake flavorings for inspiration.
