Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies

I debated about these cookies. Should they stay as cookies or be made into whoopie pies. My sister and a friend said they should be a whoopie pie. They are a soft cookie and would work but the kids voted for cookies. I realized during this debate that the kids ate the majority of the cookies. Why make a whoopie pie with only three cookies left? The kids won this debate this time.
Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 (8oz.) cream cheese, softened

  1. Was super excited to make these cookies. Was hugely disappointed that they turned out awful... I followed the recipe exactly so I'm not sure what went wrong. :(

  4. I have not tried refrigerating the dough overnight yet. I think it would be fine.
