I love this time of the year!
Especially when Carol from "Just Let Me Quilt" hosts her
Virtual Cookie Exchange.
After all, virtual cookies may well be the only way to keep the calorie
count down, during the holiday season!
I'm sharing these absolutely decadent "Cheesecake" stuffed cookies.
You know...like a couple of chocolate chip cookies aren't enough calories!
You can find the recipe
I have to admit...this time (oh ya...there have been others),
I cheated a bit and used a roll of chocolate chip cookie dough,
we bought from a school fundraiser.
I'm a lazy cook, and that is definitely the way to go.
Just slice it and roll it out nice and flat on wax paper.
You add your cheesecake filling and top with another flat cookie.
You'll want to lightly pinch the edges together, but then you will carefully form it
into a ball. That's the important part.
You want them in a ball so they don't spread all over the cookie sheet.
It takes a little practice, but you will be whipping them up quickly,
before you know it!
Probably too quickly for your hips and thighs!
...from the Wooden Bear Quilts Designs
I've had this book awhile now, but when I went to find it online,
I was surprised to see it's on clearance for only $2.
If you want a copy...
you better grab it while you can
I bet they won't last long at that rate!
I think my favorite AccuQuilt Go die, has to be rick-rac.
There is just to much you can do with it.
A couple of years ago, someone shared a recipe for "thin mints"
made with "Ritz" crackers.
I know I've asked before, but I can't remember who it was...
I just want to let you know, they are absolutely the bomb!
I made some for an "Elks" lodge fundraiser and a plate of 14 cookies sold for $35.
I made 6 plates of them, so it brought in over $200. Is that just too crazy???
Everyone loved them and what a great way to support the community.
Now check out my fellow bloggers, for what's cookin' in their kitchen.
It could become your new all time favorite!

Oh my gosh, those cookies sound so good. I love anything related to chocolate chips or cheesecake...yum! I shared a Ritz mint recipe a few years ago (not sure that's where you got it) but they are amazing. I need to make them again. Your bucket and gingerbread quilt are adorable! Hmmm...I might just have to buy that rick rac die. I'm so glad you joined in the blog hop in spite of my YIKES moment. LOL xoReplyDelete
Those gingerbread peeps are so cute! Love the rickrack.ReplyDelete
I love that Cookie Bucket and those gingerbread folks on the lap quilt are just so much fun.ReplyDelete

Such yummy cookies. I am going to put on so much weight if I make many of the recipes on this blog hop. Love the gift bag.ReplyDelete
Two of my favourites together. I look forward to trying this one.ReplyDelete
Love gingerbread men/ladies quilt (Too Cute) … as well as gingersnap cookies. The mint cookies sound like fun, but the recipe, teasing us & now we have to find it? Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the next 5 pounds on my tush!!! Chocolate chip cheesecake...my kind of insanity!!! Love the bucket...you can fill it with cookies and leave it at my door (I won't even mind if you do the doorbell ditch thing!!)!!!ReplyDelete
Super cute project and interesting looking cookies, too!ReplyDelete
Wow those cookies look and sound wonderful. Using pre made dough, I really don't always like you. Sometimes (like now) you are down right cruel. I'll wish you a Very Merry Christmas anyway. HugsReplyDelete
Your recipe looks good. Um cooking takes away from quilting, so shortcuts are always welcome. Cute bucket and the quilt too.ReplyDelete
I love that gingerbread quilt and the pretty bucket bag. Those cookies sound very decadent. I am sure that my husband would love them. Thanks for the recipe link. I will bake almost anything, but I don't like to actually do everyday cooking.ReplyDelete
What a cute Gingerbread Quilt and sweet fabric bucket to bring goodies to a party - and then gift the bag.ReplyDelete
Love seeing all the different recipes. You come up with great ideas.ReplyDelete
And I love seeing the extras. That is a great little bucket/bag. Was that tricky to make. And your little quilt is rather gorgeous, too. Love all the variations you create!
You, my friend, are amazing. Look at all these Christmas goodies in one post. I'm going to have to come back later - I'm drooled all over my computer screen. Thanks for the recipe!ReplyDelete
Such a cute gingie quilt!! And I do love that bucket. I have used that pattern for gift giving as well. Thanks for sharing your easy way of making the cookies - easy is good!!ReplyDelete
Hi Joan! Holy moly. Stuffed Chocolate Chip cookies. Seriously. Talk about finding a new favorite cookie. Yes! I'll be giving these a try this year, for shure. Cute holiday project, too. This basket is the bomb, especially if it held a batch of these cookies. YUM. ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
Oh goodness - cookies. A distant memory - but I have 19 lbs less to show for it, so I'm happy. I think I'll content myself with admiring the quilt version!ReplyDelete
Those are some decadent cookies! Can't wait to try them! Love your gingerbread girl quilt! So cute! Perfect fabric for your bag. Perfect gift bag for a batch of cookies!ReplyDelete
I too have the rick rack die, did a tutorial for them with it in Nov. How did you attach your rick rack, fusible and appliqued it on? We've been shopping in the same place I have that striped fabric you used in your bucket;)ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the link for those cookies. Oh, they look rich. lol Love that gingerbread quilt. May have to get that book.ReplyDelete
