Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies

I love making cookies because they are faster to make than most desserts and it makes a lot. It takes a lot less time to whip up a batch of Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies than it does to make a Strawberry Cheesecake.

Graham Cookies

I think you will be surprised at just how much these cookies taste like a freshly baked Strawberry Cheesecake. They are such a elegant looking cookie that they would be perfect to serve at a shower or wedding. Yet they are versatile enough that you could serve them at any casual get together

So instead of slaving away in the kitchen all day making a dessert for your next party, whip up a batch of Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies. Then with all the time you just saved yourself, you can put your feet up and relax!

Until next time,
