Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups with Cheesecake Filling
Who's a fan of the cookie cup? We DEFINITELY are.
They're versatile, cute and can be filled with all kinds of deliciousness. Not to mention easy to make! They look hard to pull together, but really it's not any harder than baking cookies.
These Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups with Cheesecake Filling are simply amazing and worth trying if you haven't made them before.
And don't even get us started on the cheesecake filling!!
Cheesecake is one of our all-time favorite desserts, after the all-American classic chocolate chip cookie, so mixing the two....wow, just wow!
We could eat just a bowl of cheesecake filling and be happy...well, that may have actually happened, but don't tell anyone 🙂
Other Cookie Recipes
Speaking of cookies, don't forget to try our Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies! You will not regret it! Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies are another must-make cookie recipe!
We like making these when hosting a girl's night or when asked to bring a dessert for the potluck. They're like a single-serve dessert that looks fancy, but simple to pull together.
Making the Cookie Cup
Making the actual cookie cup is part of the fun. You put the cookie dough in a mini cupcake pan. Bake. Then, you use your fingers or a spoon to depress the middle once they come out of the oven and have cooled for a little bit.
This is a pic of my amazing Strawberry Lemon Cookie Cups right after their middles have been indented, but before the strawberry filling is added. As we said, it's actually kinda fun to press them in and make the little cup 🙂

What's your favorite cookie or cookie cup recipe?
They look and sound amazing, Erin. I've been wanting to make cookie cups, and I've got to try these! 🙂
Thanks, Dee! These were a big hit at my bunco night! The girls loved them. The cookies where the perfect combination of crisp and chewy.
These look amazing and so delicious. Thanks for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop.
They are amazing! I've had so many people try this recipe since it was posted and they are raving about it! They've filled it with everything from lemon curd to peanut butter...all good choices!
Cristina at I Say Nomato says
These are so darn cute! (I love how you put them with big versions of small things!). I've never tried to make a cookie cup before, but you make it look so easy, I'll have to give it a shot! Thanks for sharing with the Wednesday Showcase!
Cookie cups are so easy, Cristina! You should definitely give them a try. Just about any type of cookie will do...but chocolate chip is my favorite! Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
Nikki Frank-Hamilton says
Erin, is there a word that means more than delicious? If so, that's what these look like! We are definitely going to make these, but this weekend I am using your idea for a dessert I've been waiting to try. I have the ingredients for lemon curd, but couldn't think how I wanted to serve it. Your cookie cups are the perfect idea. I found a GF sugar cookie mix and I'm going to make it per your instructions, then fill with the lemon curd and a few blueberries! Thanks for sharing this, I was stumped. Now I have 2 new desserts to try. Brilliant, just brilliant!
Drooling over here! Love this idea and can't wait to try it!
You have to try it! It's like cookies and cream in one bite!
Pamela Shank says
Oh YUM!! I am going to make these for my grandchildren. I love cookie cups.
Me too, Pamela! My all-time favorite cookie. With a little filling they are out of this world! Enjoy!

Jennifer Dawn says
These look so good! I love cheesecake treats! We'd be delighted to have you share this at our weekly link party. http://www.thelifeofjenniferdawn.com/2016/06/farmers-market-meals-and-little-bird.html Hope to see you there!
They are good...not question about that! Thanks for coming by and I'll check out the party!
Hi Erin, I really fancy this recipe, but thought I'd need a fancy tin to make the cookie cups. Such a simple idea that I would not have thought to do.
Pinning for future reference.
Just a mini cupcake pan will do, Debbie. Nothing fancy...they just look fancy 🙂 Enjoy!
Sandra Garth says
These look like I'll eat more than I should so I'll have to workout a little longer and harder!
That's what I have to do...work out a little longer and a little harder. Ha! This one is too good to pass up!
Charlene Asay says
What a fun way to have a cookie. I love this idea. Pinning for later.
Thanks for the pin, Charlene! It is a fun way, so much goodness in one bite! You could fill them with chocolate or peanut butter filling and they'd be great too!
These look so delicious, and I'm glad that they are easy too.
Making for the weekend 4th gathering.
They'd be perfect for the 4th, Celeste! They make enough for a party and then some 🙂 I just love the flavor combination. Yu. Yum. Yum!

Lucky us, we've got the ingredients at home and are making them right now. They are too cute.
Awesome! It's like cookies and cream in one bite! So, so good! They are great for when you're entertaining because they are single serve, well, if you eat only one that is 🙂
Those look absolutely amazing, Erin! Have a great day! 🙂
Thanks, Mike! They look pretty, but are very easy to make! Let me know how they turn out for you if you decide to make them 🙂
Oh my goodness! My two favorite desserts in one. Looks like heaven!
