Cheesecake Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies – Deliciously soft and chewy pumpkin cookies that are perfectly spiced, and stuffed with a cheesecake layer!
Last year, I updated my recipe for Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies – have you tried them yet? You should, they’re so good. Today, I bring you a delicious upgrade to them cookies. I’ve stuffed them with cheesecake.
This is my all-time favourite pumpkin cookie recipe.
They’re soft and chewy without being cakey, and they are perfectly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Stuffing these cookies with a layer of cheesecake makes them over-the-top GOOD.
Two incredibly delicious treats in one. If you love pumpkin and cheesecake, you need to try these cheesecake stuffed pumpkin cookies!
How to make Cheesecake Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies
Ingredients you’ll need:
- plain/all-purpose flour
- baking soda
- ground cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
- unsalted butter
- light brown sugar
- canned pumpkin puree
- vanilla extract
For the cheesecake centres:
- cream cheese
- caster/granulated sugar
- vanilla extract
To make these cookies, let’s start by making the cheesecake centres. Mix together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract until smooth and combined.
Place 9 teaspoons of the mixture onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Freeze until solid – about 1 – 2 hours.
For the cookies, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cornflour, salt, and spices. Set aside.
Whisk together the butter and sugar until combined. Add the pumpkin puree and vanilla, and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients, and mix until combined.
Roll the dough into 2oz balls. You should get about 9 big balls. Flatten the balls out, and place 1 teaspoon of the frozen cheesecake mixture into the centres. Form the dough back into balls, sealing the cheesecake inside.
Place the dough balls onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat, and bake for 12 – 14 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
