Berry Cheesecake Cookies (From a Muffin Mix)

Incredibly tender Triple Berry Cheesecake Cookies hit the spot when you want that tang of cheesecake and berries with a lot less fuss. These delicious cookies utilize two pouches of muffin mix with a few extra ingredients like cream cheese to boost the flavor. The blueberries, blackberries and raspberries pair wonderfully with the cream cheese.

The end result is a soft and tender cookie with a great cheesecake and berry flavor.


Note: Chilling the dough is essential to this recipe. Please give yourself enough time to complete the chilling process.

Berry Cheesecake Cookies (From a Muffin Mix)
Makes about 3 dozen
Print Friendly Recipe

  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. shortening (no substitutes)
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 (6.5 ounce) pouches Betty Crocker Triple Berry Muffin Mix
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 c. white chocolate chips
  1. Beat together cream cheese, shortening and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl until combined. Add eggs, beating after each.
  2. Mix in muffin mix and flour until just combined. Add white chocolate chips and stir until incorporated.
  3. Chill dough in the refrigerator for a few hours, up to overnight. This step is crucial. If you skip chilling the dough you will end up with what resembles a muffin instead of a cookie.
  4. Preheat oven to 350-f degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough into one inch balls and place onto baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown on edges. Let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a paper towel on the counter. In between baking batches of cookies make sure to store the dough in the refrigerator. 
  6. Note: Ovens vary so keep an eye on your cookies. I had to bake mine for 14 to 15 minutes. If your cookies fall apart when you transfer them to a paper towel on the counter, they have not baked long enough. Put them back in for a couple more minutes.
  7. To store: Store baked cookies on the counter top. I left mine in a tupperware with the lid off as they are already very moist. Even uncovered, they did not dry out at all overnight. These cookies do not need to be refrigerated after baking.

Chicken Doritos Casserole

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Moist Cinnamon Streusel Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Moist and so flavorful, this Pumpkin Coffee Cake can be enjoyed year round and is particularly good with a cup of coffee.

A light glaze decorates the top of the coffee cake, along with a sprinkling of pecans.


Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.

Cheeseburger Meatloaf (Keto/Low Carb)

Would you like to hear what I discovered yesterday? Well, I realized I had accidentally turned off comments on the blog for the past two months. Yikes!

About two months ago I was getting hit with a spam comment barrage so I had turned off comments for the evening, fully planning on turning them back on the next day. Whoops! Apparently I totally forgot. My apologies.

Onto the meatloaf. You get a pretty substantial serving here at only two carbs, leaving you lots of room for vegetables on the side to make up the majority of the carb count in your meal.

Of course, it doesn't have the exact texture of a traditional meatloaf, but I found it to be a great substitute. It is not tough and the diced onion lends some added texture, flavor and moisture. I would recommend going for a fresh onion for this as opposed to onion powder for this reason.

I had this with a sugar free ketchup. Tasty and even the kids loved it, onions and all. Enjoy!
