Cheesecake Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies [Video]

Although this is not the easiest recipe to make, it is well worth every single step. You do need to chill the dough and filling before you bake these red velvet cookies. Therefore, plan ahead and have some spare time to make them. It is well worth the process.

In addition, they are great to make ahead. You can simply refrigerate them for a couple of days.

Kids will also love them because when they bite into them, they will find a little surprise!  To finish, I like to drizzle them with some white chocolate or icing. However, this step is not necessary. They are just pure joy, and the buttery flavor will surely more than satisfy your craving!


Ingredients
FOR CREAM CHEESE FILLING:
8 ounces  cream cheese  (softened)
1/2 cup  powdered sugar
1/8 teaspoon  kosher salt
FOR RED VELVET COOKIE DOUGH:
1/2 cup  unsalted butter  (softened)
1 cup  granulated sugar
1  large egg
1 teaspoon  vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups  all-purpose flour
1/4 cup  unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon  baking powder
 Gel red food coloring

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
CREAM CHEESE FILLING:
Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, and salt in a small bowl until smooth.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until slightly firm, about 30 minutes.
RED VELVET COOKIE DOUGH:
In a large bowl using a hand mixer, combine butter, and sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
Next, add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, a few drops of food coloring, and salt. Mix until just combined.
If you want the dough redder, add more gel food coloring.
MAKE COOKIES:
Using a two tablespoons cookies scoop, scoop cookie dough and flatten into a pancake-like circle, place it on the baking sheet. Place about 2 teaspoons of cream cheese filling on top. Bring the edges of the dough around the filling and pinch together to seal, if necessary add more dough to cover completely. Roll the filled dough into a ball and place it back on the baking sheet. Arrange cookies about 3inches apart from each other.
Bake cookies 15 to 17 minutes.
Cool on a cooling rack before serving.
