I found this recipe from homestead blogger mommaofmany in March 2008. Since the upgrade, I have not been able to access her site. I absolutely LOVE these Cheesecake cookies and did not originally post the recipe, only a link to her post for the recipe. I topped mine with strawberries I had cut up and soaked in sugar in the fridge for a few hours, then added whipped topping. YUM!
Without further ado, I bring you cheesecake cookies:
10 TBSP butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
16 oz cream cheese softened
4 TBSP milk
2 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350. Mix butter, brown sugar and flour until crumbly. set aside 1 cup of crumbs. Lightly grease a 9 x 13. Press remaining crumbs into bottom. Bake for 15 minutes.
In another bowl, combine sugar and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in egg, milk, lemon juice and vanilla. Spread over crust and sprinkle with topping. Bake 25 minutes. Cut into squares.
You can also spread your favorite preserves over bottom crust before adding the cheesecake mixture. Bake as directed.
NOTE FROM TERESA: My oven required 30 min bake time when I baked this recipe, so just use best judgement. AND MOMMAOFMANY, I HOPE YOU START BLOGGING AGAIN SOON. I MISS YOUR RECIPES!!!!
