Christmas Cookie Swap - Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies

I have seen cookie swaps all over the blogosphere for a while now and have been keen to join in, however, living in the UK means I cannot really send baked goods all the way to the US and have them arrive in an edible state! So this cookie swap organised by Julie over at White Lights on Wednesday where we swap actual recipes was perfect!

The lovely Heather from The Mosby's in China sent me a recipe, she told me that her family don't have any cookie traditions as such but now she is married she wants to start her own - so she sent me this recipe that she has wanted to try, for Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies from the fabulous blog Two Peas And Their Pod. 

I have never made anything 'red velvet' before, nor have I ever made anything using a box mix but I was SMITTEN with these cookies! They were so yummy! The recipe itself looks a bit labour intensive but it really wasn't - it just requires a little time planning as the components need chilling before you can cook them!

I also found that my cheesecake filling had a tendency to fall out the bottom of the cookie straight after I had cooked them - to solve this, I cooled the cookies upside down and by the time they were cool, the filling had set and and it stayed put!

The cookies themselves were yummy but the hit of cream-cheese filling in the middle made them heavenly!

Thank so much Heather for sending over this recipe and if you would like to have a go as well, here is the link to the recipe on Two Peas And Their Pod.

I am looking forward to seeing what recipes other people swapped!

Love Rebecca
