Even though it's been a really long day {sick kids and all} and I have big plans of crawling into my bed and trying to get some good sleep before my big “bake fest” tomorrow, I really wanted to share these cookies with you all… Cheesecake Cookies with Cherries and Shaved Chocolate!

These are almost to extravagant for words. Think a graham cracker cookie with a cheesecake topping sprinkled with shaved chocolate and a couple cherries and you will have these Cheesecake Cookies with Cherries and Shaved Chocolate! So good and pretty darn easy to make!


I loved the way the S'more Cookies turned out so I used the same recipe again for Chewy Graham Cookies from Ice Cream Before Dinner. Again, I made the same changes… no cinnamon in the recipe and no cinnamon sugar on top.


Using her recipe and directions, I baked the cookies and let them cool while I made the frosting.

So easy… just take:

  • one packages of instant vanilla pudding
  • 4 cups of powdered sugar
  • 8 oz. block of softened cream cheese
  • 1-2 cups of milk {depending on how thick you want your frosting/topping}

Beat it all together and let it thicken and chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours.


Pipe the frosting onto the cookies and then top with a couple cherries and some shaved chocolate. You can use jarred cherries or fresh or some cherry pie filling. Whatever you like best!


Time to get some rest! Merry Almost Christmas! Only a couple days away now!
