Inside Out Cheesecake Cookies

makes 20 cookies
recipe adapted from Tasty Kitchen
prep time: 15 min / cook time: 12-15 min

1/2 c unsalted butter, softened
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
* I used 4 oz.
1 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c mini chocolate chips
1 c oreo cookie crumbs
* I used graham cracker crumbs
1/2 c white chocolate chips, melted (optional)

Preheat oven to 375˚F.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
In an electric mixer with the beater attachment, , cream together the butter and cream cheese until they are well combined.
Add sugar and vanilla to the mixture until ingredients are well combined.
Add the flour and mix on low until the flour is incorporated.
Stir in mini chocolate chips.
Coop the dough into 1" balls and roll in Oreo or graham cracker crumbs so cookie is covered.
Place covered cookie balls onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the tops are slightly puffed.
Cool on the pan for two minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
Optional: Once cooled, drizzle cookies with melted white chocolate.

For a less sweet cookie, reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup.
To ensure my cookies are the same size, I used a medium cookie scoop that holds 1 1/2 tbs.
For added flavor, you can add the zest of a lemon, lime or orange.
Try using different cookie crumbs.
