Summer Sugar Cookie Cheesecake Recipe

July 15, 2021


This recipe being shared has been long awaited so I'm finally getting to this to have for future reference - because it really is that good! We normally bake this during Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day but your topping can be totally your own and would be delicious for a birthday cake or any event you need a larger sized dessert to share.

I don't have a favorite sugar cookie recipe and typically grab a loaf of the pilsbury premade sugar cookie for this dish so with that in mind, I'll just be sharing the cheesecake recipe and your instructions for everything together!

What you'll need:

1 Pilsbury sugar cookie premade loaf
16oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups cool whip


Preheat your oven to temperature specified on sugar cookie loaf. In a large 9x12 baking dish, line the bottom with sugar cookie dough and smash it down with your fingertips so it's about 1/4 inch thick and covering the entire base. Bake 11-13 minutes or until lightly golden brown, set aside.

While your sugar cookie base bakes, in a standing mixer, beat (room temperature) cream cheese, sugar and cool whip together about 2-3 minutes until well combined and no cream cheese chunks are seen. After your sugar cookie base is done and cooled, top with your cheesecake filling. You can then add your blueberries, strawberries and raspberries... or any fresh fruit you desire! Kiwi, or peaches would be a delight, too!

Refrigerate until ready to serve and cut into small pieces like you would brownies when serving from your large rectangle tray.

I hope you all love this recipe and enjoy sharing it with friends and family. It's always a hit for our home and I can't get enough of it during hot summer days when we BBQ and swim. Enjoy! xx

Dusty Mint & Creamy Coffee

A summer staple around here is flowy dresses and iced coffee in hand. It's been a summer of HEAT and while I'd love to spend all my days sitting by the pool, work calls. We have some of the cutest local coffee shops so lately I've been doing work power hours and meetings at one with team members of mine and it's just what I need.

With both Andrew and I working from home it can all jumble together our time parenting, cooking, cleaning, schooling, working... so when my brain feels like mush, I find myself grabbing the girls and going to our local coffee shop to change things up.

Long live summer and long live iced coffee. Always.
