  • Add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter and mix until it forms a dough.
  • Line and grease a 12 muffin tin.
  • Roll out the cookie dough.
  • Using a cookie cutter or a cup, cut out circles in the dough. Then shape the circles into cups in the muffin tin.
  • Bake the cookie cups for 8 minutes and remove from the oven. (You may have some leftover dough, which you can use to make some sugar cookies).
  • Let the cookie cups rest for at least 10 minutes.
  • In the mean time, prepare the cheesecake filling by beating the cream cheese with the sugar, egg, and vanilla.
  • After the cookie cups have rested for at least 10 minutes, fill the cups with the cheesecake filling.
  • Bake 20 more minutes, or until the cheesecake has set.
  • Remove from the oven.

    First off I must confess that I am not a baker. That said, although these were very good, they could have been better. The instructions could have been a little more clear as to how much to roll the dough out and how thick it should have been. I think I added too much dough to the muffin tins and it was too thick. It puffed up so much that I had to flatten it with a spoon to make room for the filling. The filling was excellent and if the dough had been thinner these would have been a 5 star for us. I will make these again but make the dough much, much thinner. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2014
