Posted in : All, Desserts on by : hdcook

The third week of January in 2018, is it just me or the days, months & years are going by so fast now, its weird how when your older they just seem like it, and the much needed break has recharge me with new ideas and its great like these red velvet cookies stuffed with cream cheese, almost cheesecake like ALMOST it takes a bit of  work but it is certainly worth it, I made this concoction when my hubby ask me to make cookies for him for his goodie day at work and they were just a hit I guess, LOL, every one loved then and why shouldn’t they? anyways, the only thing I would suggest its to have a block of cream cheese at room temperature, really really soft so when you add the powdered sugar and vanilla and mixed it all up it will be smooth, you will need to freeze about 50 1/2 Teaspoon dallops of cream cheese in a line baking sheet or plate, the only hard part, then the rest is easy. Trust me make these cookies at home and I guarantee your family or friends are going to be asking you to make them more often.
