Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies Recipe
Sept. 18, 2019
"Folding frozen chunks of cream cheese into a sour cream sugar cookie base makes for a wonderfully cheesecakey-flavored cookie! Add in blueberries, and you've got a nice balance of creamy, sweet, salty, and tart berry flavor--all in one deliciously soft cookie!"
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/3 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
4 ounces cream cheese, cut into 1/4-inch pieces and frozen
Ready In45 m
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Beat sugar and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Mix in egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract until well combined. Add in 1/3 of the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Stir in 1/2 of the sour cream. Continue alternating additions of the flour mixture and sour cream, beginning and ending with the flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Do not overmix. Gently fold in blueberries and frozen pieces of cream cheese.
Drop 1 1/2 tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
Bake in the preheated oven until the bottom of the cookies just begins to brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Make sure to cut the cream cheese into small pieces. It's easiest to do this when the cream cheese is very cold, but not frozen. I recommend placing the 4 oz block of cream cheese in the freezer for about 30 to 60 minutes, or until very cold. Then slice into 1/4-inch pieces, and place the pieces back into the freezer until completely frozen, about 1 to 2 hours.
