White Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies, soft cream cheese cookies filled with white chocolate ganache!

White Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies, as if cream cheese cookies couldn’t get any better, I added white chocolate to them, whoops?!

With the holidays literally right around the corner, I wanted to send you off with one last cookie recipe. Who doesn’t love cookies?

I really think these cookies could be Christmas cookies but I also think they are perfect for every day.

Plus, the white on white look of them are super elegant to me and would be perfect at any party.

You can also add any colored sprinkles on top to make them pop!

Cream cheese cookies are soft and tender. They really are a classic!

I used the round end of a utensil to make the “thumbprint”, I have come to notice over the years that when making thumbprint style cookies, the indentions tend to be very inconsistent. Also, sometimes they can be off center and the filling might leak out.

So, using the same sized round object for each one works perfectly. I have also seen other people use a round teaspoon to make the indentions.

White Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies Directions:Make cream cheese cookie batter, consisting of cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, flour, and more.

Let chill in the fridge for one hour.

Roll out tablespoon sized balls and place on a parchment lined sheet tray. Make thumbprint indentions and bake for 10 minutes until the very bottom edges are very slightly browned.

Take out of the oven, and let cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet. Transfer to a wired rack to cool completely.

While cookies are cooling, make the ganache by mixing together white chocolate chips, butter, and condensed milk.

Once cookies are cool, fill the little indentions with the ganache. Garnish with sprinkles, optional.
