Hey friends! I’m Bex, the girl behind Butcher’s Niche. There you’ll find all things style –fashion, home decor, and even diy cleaning products. I’m so excited to be here with Jenna to share a super fun recipe.
I just recently moved from Indiana to Central Florida. In Indiana they’re still wearing winter coats outside . . . in Florida I’m wearing cute dresses almost every day. In Indiana a good warm soup is still the best thing for dinner . . . but to have that for dinner in my new city sounds like misery. There are BIG changes happening in my life . . . and to top it all off . . . today is my 29th birthday.
It’s weird being away from my friends and family on my birthday, but don’t feel too sorry for me ( I mean I do live by the beach, now) because I have these amazing Rainbow Sprinkle Cheesecake Cookies to keep me company.
Cheesecake is my favorite dessert in the world because it reminds of home and christmas. So it seemed only appropriate to have some cheesecake cookies for my birthday, and to share the recipe with all of you.
- 1/2 cup butter, soft
- 4 oz cream cheese, soft
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 2/3 cup flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup rainbow sprinkles (plus more for rolling in)
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Mix in sugar, egg, and vanilla and beat until creamy.
- In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Slowly mix dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until combined well.
- Stir in 1/3 cup of rainbow sprinkles (stir in with a spoon). Chill dough in the fridge for 30-45 mins.
- Pour additional sprinkles into a shallow bowl.
- Make one in balls out of the dough, and roll each into the bowl of sprinkles, coating the entire thing. I chose to skip this part . . . because one can have too many sprinkles. If you choose to do it then it'll just look covered in sprinkles instead of baked in like mine.
- Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. You don't want the edges to brown. The top may not be completely set but you can let them continue to cook on the pan once removed from the oven. Let cool and then enjoy!
