Ingredients

For the Cookie Dough:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Make the Cheesecake Filling: In a small bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the Cookie Dough:
  • In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  1. Form the Cookies:
  • Scoop about 1 tablespoon of cookie dough and flatten it into a disk.
  • Place about 1 teaspoon of the cheesecake filling in the center of the disk.
  • Scoop another 1 tablespoon of cookie dough and flatten it. Place it over the cheesecake filling and seal the edges by pinching the dough together and rolling it into a ball.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough and filling.
  1. Cinnamon-Sugar Coating: In a small bowl, mix together the 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Roll each dough ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat evenly.
  2. Bake: Place the coated dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden and the cookies are set.
  3. Cool and Serve: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
