Cheesecake Cookies

When I found this recipe I thought...hmmm, sounds good, but these are incredibly delicious. There really isn't much to them. The dough is very sticky and the cookies spread alot, but they are so chewy and sort of taste like cheesecake. They are definitely addictive. I tried putting a strawberry slice on the tops of a few before baking. It was a very yummy addition. Don't bake them too long. They are pretty delicate and won't stay chewy if they are baked too long. You should definitely line the baking sheet with parchment paper--I'm sure they would stick otherwise.

Cheesecake Cookies

1/2 c cream cheese, softened
1/2 c butter, softened
1 c sugar
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 c flour

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese. Gradually add the suagr at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and salt.

Whisk baking powder and flour in a small bowl. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and stir by hand until combined.
