Baking Tips

When making these Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Cookies make sure you use parchment paper because the caramel can become really thick and sticky. It’s also important to freeze the cream cheese filling balls thoroughly so they don’t overly melt when baking.

What’s the difference between Snickerdoodle and Churro? 

Snickerdoodles and churros are both popular desserts, but they have some differences. Snickerdoodles refer to soft and chewy cookies that are sweetened with cinnamon and sugar. They are made with a mixture of flour, butter, sugar, and eggs, and then rolled in cinnamon and sugar before baking. 

Churros are a type of fried dough pastry, originating in Spain, and are now popular all over the world. They are made by piping a dough made from flour, water, and salt through a star-shaped nozzle and then deep-fried. These strips of dough are crispy and golden. 

So both snickerdoodles and churros use cinnamon and sugar, the difference lies in their textures and preparation of the pastry itself. Snickerdoodles are soft and chewy cookies that are baked in an oven, while churros are crispy fried dough pastries that are often served hot. Either one can be used to describe these Cheesecake/ cream cheese stuffed cookies with caramel drizzle!

    Next time please add the Pam part to the recipe instructions. I didn’t realize there was a video that shows how the sugar mixture would stay on with Pam while adding with the scooper. Video is at the very bottom of the recipe which was over looked.

    1. Okay I will do that right now thank you
