{Cheesecake cookies}

Preparation: 45 min

Cooking time: 10 min

Yield: 24 cookies (it will depend on the size of your pan)


    Cookie dough:

  • 400 g all purpose flour
  • 125 g confectioners’ sugar
  • 200 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt
  • Filling:

  • 100 g sour cream
  • 200 g cream cheese, room temperature
  • 100 g sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • strawberry jam
  • To decorate:

  • red and green food colouring, and wooden skewers


  1. Let’s start preparing cookie dough. In a medium mixing-bowl, mix together all ingredientes to form a ball.
  2. Divide the dough in two, and gather each portion into a slightly flattened ball.
  3. Working with one ball of dough at a time, roll it out between two baking papers to a thickness of maximum 0,5 cm.
  4. Using a beveled cookie cutter, cut out circles and drape one circle over each bowl cavity of pan, pressing to form smooth surface. (I used a mini cupcake pan)
  5. Chill whilst preheating oven to 350º F (180 ºC)
  6. Slip cookies into the oven to bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and let them cool on the pan for about 10 minutes
  7. Let them cool completely on a wire rack
  8. When cold, prepare cheese filling. Mix sweetened condensed milk, sour cream (or whip cream) and cream cheese on a medium bowl, until combined. Add lemon juice and mix well.
  9. Place two tablespoons cheese cream on a small bowl, and another two tablespoons on a separate small bowl. Tint one of the bowls with red food colouring, and the other one with green food colouring.
  10. Place 1 teaspoon strawberry jam on every cookie bowl. Fill with cheese cream. Use wooden skewers and red and green mixes to decorate
  11. Keep in the fridge until set (about 4 hours if using sour cream, at least 24
    hours if using whipping cream). They are better the next day. Can be stored several days on the fridge

    Hi! These look adorable and I hope to make some for Christmas. Just one question, how did you make the patterned rim on the cookie bowls?

    These are beautiful, and I’m making them for a Cookie Exchange…but I’m doing a test run today, and my dough just keeps falling apart, crumbling! What can I do? Can I add milk or something to it to make it a bit more moist? I tried putting it in the fridge to make it easier to work with, and it did not help! Please help, anyone that has made it! I’m actually going to make some with blackberry jam too…I’m so excited and now I’m stuck :(

    Do you grease the tin before placing the cookie dough on it?

    Do you use an electric mixer for the cookie dough or do you mix by hand?

    Could I have the measurements in English in Cups/tablespoons etc?
    Also, do you spray the muffin pan with butter before you cook the dough?
    Thank you!

      I had the same problem. Using a converter these are the rough estimates I got.
      Flour- 3cups 3tbs
      Powdered Sugar- 11/4cup
      Butter – 14 Tbs (almost two sticks)

      Sour cream – 1/3 cup
      Cream chese – (almost a full bar of the philly cream cheese just eyeball it)
      Condensed milk – 1/3cup

  13. 23 December 2012, 8:27 pm - Danielle C

    These would be adorable! But, the measurements are in grams, not cups… It’s kind of a hassle to find a converter and such. Is there a recipe with the conversions?
    Thanks for the cute idea!

    D.C. :]

    I made these several times last year and they were a big hit! I’d like to try with pumpkin filling but am worried the extended baking time may be to long for the cookie dough? Any tips would be appreciated.
