Cheesecake Cookies

Cheesecake Cookies

* 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
* 3 ounces cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat)
* 2/3 cup sugar
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
* Toppings of choice: Chocolate Cookie Crumbs, Mini Chocolate Chips, Sprinkles, Cinnamon Sugar (the possibilities are endless)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat together butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Mix in vanilla extract. Stir in the flour until well combined.

Refrigerate (or freeze) dough for 10 to 15 minutes so that it is easier to handle.

In small bowls, place several topping options. We used chocolate cookie crumbs, cinnamon sugar, mini chocolate chips, and sprinkles.
Note:For another option you can place a chocolate chunk in the interior of the cookies before rolling. You'll have an extra surprise when biting into your cookie. I'm putting peanut butter chips in mine :)
