I don’t consider myself a baker (and I especially don’t consider myself a cook). But sometimes I find recipes online that seem basically too good to be true that they are THAT SIMPLE. And I have to try them.

Today like two weeks ago when I started this post was a variation on “Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake Cookies” from Wine and Glue.

Except not cinnamon roll and not cheesecake.

That would be too easy, right? [Also does cheesecake pudding even exist in Canada?]

So, because I can’t adhere to the prescribed ingredient list, despite that only three things were listed, we got this:

  • 1 package sugar cookie mix plus the ingredients to make the cookies
  • 1 package of Cinnamon Roll Flavor Creations from Duncan Hines
    • INSTEAD: 1 package of White Chocolatey Raspberry Frosting Creations Mix from Duncan Hines.
  • 1 box of Cheesecake Flavor Pudding mix (just the dry mix)
    • Omitted. Because I thought I had
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips


And yes, they were too sweet, but no, they were actually not terrible. And very soft.

I’ll cut back on sugar next time and probably not use raspberry.
(Caramel might be good, though.)

  1. Clearly Shlomo and I need to give you a baking seminar. Then you can get as spoiled and fat as us. (We bake and eat fresh baked goods all the time.) 🙂
