Recipe Notes and FAQ

Add even more toppings

If you’d like to include additional toppings to your cheesecake cookies, be sure to do so right when they come out of the oven; otherwise, they won’t stick.

You can also get creative with different flavor combinations. Maybe blueberries with banana pudding or cranberries with white chocolate pudding. Get creative!

Can you use fresh strawberries instead of freeze-dried?

You can use fresh strawberries in this recipe if you don’t have freeze-dried. The flavor is more concentrated when you use freeze-dried, and they keep the cookie batter a beige color.

Important note about stirring

Once the wet and dry ingredients are combined, keep the stirring to a minimum. You don’t want to over mix this dough.

Chip size matters

If you notice in the images, the white chocolate chips are larger than the dark. You can, of course, use the same size chips all around, but using mini dark chocolate chips makes the strawberries pop.

The cookies are more visually appealing if you keep the white chips large and the dark chips small to draw the eye to the berries.

If you plan to gobble up your cheesecake cookies right away, by all means, use any size chips! If you plan to serve to others and want them to look pretty, let the strawberries be the focus.
