Cheesecake stuffed cookies have become a new favorite around here and it’s easy to tell why once you taste these amazing pumpkin cookies. These stuffed cookies are soft and chewy just like a big cookie that you’d find at a bakery.
While my Hot Chocolate cookies normally win best cookie awards with family and friends, I have a feeling that these Cheesecake Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies are going to give the Hot Chocolate cookies some competition this year.
What you need for Cheesecake Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies:
What you need for Cheesecake Stuffed Pumpkin Cookie Cheesecake Filling:
- cream cheese, softened
- Dixie Crystals Confectioners Powdered Sugar
How long will these cookie last and do they need to stay in the fridge?
These cookies will keep for 4-5 days in an airtight container.
As far as the fridge questions I say yes and no. Ok, so they have cream cheese in the centers but it’s a small amount. The powdered sugar in the filling absorbs the excess moisture of the cream cheese so it’s not like leaving a full cheesecake out on the counter for a week.
So this is what I say when it comes to the Cheesecake Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies in my house. If they’re going to be eaten within 1-3 days they’re fine at room temperature in an airtight container. If it’s going to be longer than 3 days, put them in an air tight container in the fridge.
How to make Cheesecake Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies look pretty and have that bakery look:
These cheesecake stuffed cookies are going to taste amazing no matter how they look but if you’re looking to get that perfect bakery cookie look here are a few tips and tricks to follow:
Chocolate Chip Placement – Yes, you’ll be adding white chocolate chips to the dough and some will peak through the dough when you make them but to make them look extra inviting save a few white chocolate chips from being tossed into the dough and press them into the top of each cookie before you bake it.
Sticky Dough Makes for a rough cookie – Cookies, in my opinion, look best when they’re smooth. However, sometimes if you have a sticky cookie dough like this one they’ll have rough edges and pointy spots. Of course that won’t change the amazing taste but in order to get a smooth finish, just wet your finger or the back of a spoon with cold water and smooth the rough parts of the dough.
