Strawberry-Guave Cheesecake Cookies


When I stumbled upon this recipe on Leslie's blog (http://thehungryhousewife.blogspot.com/) I instantly knew I had to give these a try. The name alone intrigued me: Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies..... What are they: minicakes? cookies?? They look great, but what will they taste like?

I mostly followed Leslies recipe, with a few adaptations in quantities. This is mainly because I don't have a digital scale.... Also I used strawberry-guave jam instead of plain strawberry, because that's the one I had in my cupboard. I only managed to produce 2 dozen instead of three, I think my portionsize was a bit too big. Because of this I had to bake the cookies for 25 minutes instead of 12-14.

They actually taste great: not too sweet, the edges are nice and sort of crunchy whereas the centre is nice ans soft cake-like. I'm certainly making these again!


Ingredients

½ cup cream cheese, soft
½ cup butter, soft
1 cup sugar
1 egg
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp baking powder
1 cup flour
Jam(what ever flavor you fancy)

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, beat together butter and cream cheese. Gradually beat in sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and salt. Whisk together baking powder and flour in a small bowl and, mixing by hand or at low speed, add to cream cheese mixture.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Bake at 180 for 12-14 minutes, until the bottom edge just barely turns brown. Makes about 3 dozen.


P.S. My pictures aren't the greatest, but bad pictures are better than no pictures at all!!!
