Blueberry Muffin Cheesecake Cookies

Easy Blueberry Muffin Cheesecake Cookies that start with a muffin mix! #sponsored
Today I have super easy cookie recipe to share with y'all! These Blueberry Muffin Cheesecake Cookies start with a Martha White muffin mix and a few pantry staples. I love using using muffin mixes to make something other than just muffins.  

In the past I've made cakes, cookies, cobblers, and trifles. Each of those recipes start with a muffin mix, a little imagination, and whatever pantry staples I have on hand. You would be surprised at all the recipes combinations you can come up with.  

If you love blueberry muffins then you're going to love these cookies. These blueberry cookies have a soft cake like texture like a muffin, but in a cookie form. I think the addition of the white chocolate chips and cream cheese take these cookies over the top.  

For this recipe I used the NEW Martha Whites Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin Mix. This is the first time I have ever used a gluten free muffin mix for baking, and they taste just as good as the regular Martha White mixes.  

I have several readers that are always on the look out for gluten free options when it comes to desserts and treats especially when a recipe requires a mix. The New Martha White Gluten Free Mixes come in blueberry, chocolate chocolate chip, and sweet yellow cornbread & muffin mix.  I hope you'll give these new mixes a try especially if you follow a gluten-free diet.  

If blueberry is not your thing choose a different flavor. Martha White also has non gluten free muffin mix varieties in the following flavors, strawberry, strawberry cheesecake, and wild berry. If using a non gluten free mix all purpose flour can be substituted for gluten free flour.  

Blueberry Muffin Cheesecake Cookies 

2 - 7 oz packages Martha White Blueberry Muffin Mix or use Gluten Free (mix)
1/2 - cup butter, softened
4 - ounces cream cheese, softened
2 - eggs
1/2 - cup brown sugar
3/4 - cup all purpose flour 
1/2 -teaspoon vanilla or lemon extract 
1 - cup  white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl or using a kitchen aid mixer, cream together, butter, cream cheese, and brown sugar. Add eggs until blended. 

Add the muffin mixes, flour, and vanilla extract until blended. Fold in the white chocolate chips. 

Using a one inch cookie scoop or drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Using the bottom of a glass, press down on the dough to slightly flatten the cookies. 

Bake about 14 minutes or just until the cookies start to brown on the edges. Remove from oven and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Remove and cool completely on a baking rack. 

recipe yields: approx. 2 dozen cookies 
adapted from: Jiffy

I'm sure I sound lame but I'd make muffins as it's my first time with the brand then experiment and buy more if we enjoy them!

Julie Sullivan said... #

I always add something to my Martha White dish - whether it is chips, fresh fruit or pure vanilla. I am so thankful for Martha White products that I always buy two packages when I go to the grocery store. One of my favorite add-ins is butterscotch chips and fresh bananas to the Martha White Banana Nut Muffin mix. These are so good, whether fresh out of the oven or after the muffins have cooled off. I make one regular pan of muffins and use the extra leftover mix and make mini muffins. I make these every Saturday mornings.

Breakfast snacks- eggs and bacon muffins

Samantha Mills said... #

Ok, first of all I would make the blueberry cheesecake muffin cookies you have in this blog post. They look really yummy. Then I would probably make some soup or chili in the slowcooker and cornbread muffins. I like to replace the liquid called for with cream corn and also add whole corn to the mix. They come out super moist and sweet. I'm not sure what I would do with the chocolate yet. There are soooo many things to do with chocolate!

Monica said... #

I would use the cornbread mix and some jalapeno, bacon and cheddar to them. Yum! Thanks
