Coffee Bean Cheese Cookies


Cheese Cake, Cheese Blintzes, Cheese Muffins, how about Cheese Cookies?!? This recipe originally appeared in a Mishloach Manot presentation I did for the Mishpacha Magazine last year.As one of the themes was photography, I topped off of the arrangement with these delectable Cheese Cookies (thus the “Just say Cheese!”). This recipe is easy to make, and judging by the positive feedback  I received, these cookies will be a great addition to your Shavuout baking.

  • Thanks for responding. I will definitely be trying the recipe.

  • Hi!
    Sorry for the confusion.
    I appreciate hearing from you.
    I corrected the mistake.

  • How many cookies does one recipe make?

  • There are no egg whites in the ingredients list for the filling. Is it the one egg white (to match the one egg yolk) or more? You do say in step number 6 to beat the egg whites (plural.)
