Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies

October 11, 2012

These Red Velvet Cheesecake cookies are exactly what you expect for a cookie….soft, chewy, creamy, deliciousness. I guess that could just be my cookie preference, but these are fantastic. They get their softness because they are made with a cake box mix (time saver as well – it’s a win/win!).  The cream cheese is mixed in to the batter giving it a subtle cheesecake taste.

Make them for the holidays with their festive color or bring them to a party. I had several requests for these after I brought them to a potluck!!





















(Recipe adapted from here)

For the cookies:
1 box red velvet cake mix
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup white chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. To make cookies, in a large bowl combine cake mix and flour. Whisk until clumps disappear. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together cake mix, flour, eggs, oil, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth. Lastly, add the white chocolate chips and stir by hand just until mixed in.
2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Spoon cookie dough onto sheet using about 1-2 T for each cookie. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until the cookies begin to crackle. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Remove from baking sheet to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
