    Re: New York Cheesecake Cookies

    I can't explain it and I can't fix whatever I did to the recipe above, but I've dropped it below. Sorry guys!

    Ingredients


    • 1 1/4 cups finely crushed graham crackers (1 sleeve)
    • 1 cup flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1 egg, separated
    • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    In a large bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, flour and baking powder. In a medium bowl, beat together the butter with the brown sugar using an electric hand mixer. Add the egg white and beat until well combined. Add to the graham cracker crumbs and blend until just combined.
    In a separate medium bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese with the granulated sugar, egg yolk, lemon zest and vanilla until well combined. Set aside.
    Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop out the cookie dough and place on a nonstick or parchment lined baking sheet. (If you do not have an ice scoop, then measure out the dough into scoops of about 2 tablespoons.) Flatten slightly, pressing your thumb in the center of the ball to create a small bowl shape. Repeat with the remaining dough. Spoon the cream cheese into the indents in the cookies.
    Bake until the filling is barely set and the cookies are lightly golden, 12 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes on the baking sheets before removing them and cooling completely on a wire rack.

    Also, if you'd like to embellish, blend up some pie filling of your choice, blueberry, cherry, whatever, in the blender or food processor until smooth, and using an eye dropper or turkey baster or some similar device, fill the centers with a little of the filling while they are still a bit warm. Yummy.
