How To Make Cheesecake Pudding Cookies

These scrumptious cheesecake cookies are made with simple baking ingredients you probably already have. Here’s what you’ll need to make this recipe: 

  • Butter– I used salted butter. You want it to be at room temperature, so it’s easier to work with. Let the butter sit on the counter for about 30-minutes. 
  • Brown sugar– Use your measuring cup to scoop and pack the brown sugar. 
  • Sugar– Use your measuring spoon to scoop and pack your granulated sugar.
  • Egg– When baking, eggs are best used at room temperature. Set the egg out with the butter for about 30-minutes.
  • Flour– Unlike sugar, you do not want to pack the flour. Use a spoon to scoop the flour into the measuring cup, and then scrape off the excess flour with a butter knife. 
  • Baking soda– Baking soda helps your cookies to rise as they cook for a chewy, fluffy, and delicious cookie. 
  • Cheesecake pudding mix packet– You can also use the entire package of pudding mix if you want these cookies to really pack a flavor punch. However, we found that half a package was plenty to get the cheesecake flavor to come through.
  • White chocolate chips– The white chocolate chips can be omitted if you want to really intensify the cheesecake flavor of these cookies, but I think these cookies are better with the chocolate chips. 

Although absolutely indulgent, these cheesecake pudding cookies are actually really easy to make. Follow the simple steps below for a delicious afternoon snack.

  1. First, preheat your oven to 350?. 
  2. While the oven is preheating, cream together your butter, brown sugar, and white sugar in a medium mixing bowl until smooth. 
  3. Next, add the egg and stir until smooth and homogenous. 
  4. Stir in the flour, baking soda, and pudding mix until there are no clumps and your ingredients become a dough. 
  5. Gently fold in the white chocolate chips so that they are evenly distributed throughout the dough. 
  6. Scoop 1-2 tablespoons of dough into a ball. Place the balls 1-2 inches apart on a baking sheet. 
  7. Bake your cheesecake pudding cookies for 10-12 minutes. 
  8. Finally, let the cookies cool before removing them from the baking sheet. 
  9. Serve and enjoy!

Tips and Tricks to Perfect Cheesecake Pudding Cookies and FAQs: 

  • Be sure to scrape along the bottom of the bowl several times to ensure the batter is completely mixed.
  • If storing unbaked cookie dough, simply throw a ball of dough in a mug and microwave it on 30 second intervals until warm for a gooey treat.
  • Add other mix-ins. These cookies are delicious with raisins, almonds, mini peanut butter cups, or other candies. Try out different things for the ultimate treat.
