Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies

We were eating at Subway and we were scarfing down their Raspberry Cheesecake cookies.  They were good, but, as always I say I can make the better cookie. Just like Barney Stinson, I proudly, in my mind, claimed, Challenge Accepted!

Here is the picture that pulled me into this recipe:

I actually found very few recipes about strawberry cheesecake cookies / raspberry cheesecake cookies. Surprisingly, these are very good, you think if a recipe that took a bit of effort would be bad, but this was well worth the hunt to find!

Here is the Recipe:

2 (7 ounce) boxes raspberry muffin mix (I’ve been using Strawberry due to the fact that Rasbperry is all but non-existent in my grocery area, however, this has sparked my interest to expand and try other variations.)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

4 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature

1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts (optional)

Directions:

1 Combine butter and cream cheese until blended.

2 Add eggs, baking soda and brown sugar; mix until blended.

3 Add muffin mix and chips.

4 Mix until blended.

5 Place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

6 Scoop onto ungreased baking sheet, placing 2 inches apart.

7 Bake at 350F for 12 minutes.

Here are how my turned out:

From everyone’s reaction every time that I have made these have been “OMG, I hate you, can I have another”. I think that they are pretty good!
