Unique Recipe: Trust me when I say this cookie is not something everyone bakes. It’s a unique cookie (Thanks to Crumbl for bringing it), and you may wanna save it for special occasions. 

The Texture: These cookies are moist, soft, and chewy in nature. They are a desert in themselves. The cheesecake frosting as topping really builds the flavor and makes you feel like you are eating a cheesecake itself.


Important Ingredients Used In The Recipe

Butter: Butter has been used in all three components of the cookie. Salted butter at room temperature for the cookie base, melted salted butter for the top crumble, and softened unsalted butter for the frosting. Consistency is the key here as all three elements are different and require unique consistency of butter. 

Graham Crackers: Use a fresh pack of Graham crackers for the best results. The flavor goes into the cookies using crushed crackers, and the crumble on top also requires powdered crackers. 

Sugar: A combination of castor and brown sugar ensures a proper mix of crisp and chewy texture. Castor sugar helps get crispy edges, while brown sugar makes the cookies moist and chewy. 

Cream Cheese: Use softened cream cheese for the frosting. Do not use cream cheese that is too hard or too runny. 

Rising Agents: Both baking soda and baking powder have been used in the recipe as they provide the appropriate height and spread to the cookies. 

How To Make Crumble NY Cheesecake Cookies

Preparation: The cookie requires to make three different elements. Collect all ingredients and tools needed to make these three elements. Line a baking tray/sheet with a silicone mat or butter paper. Preheat the oven to 180C (OTG mode: upper rod + lower rod + fan). 

Method For Cookie Base

Creaming: Cream the butter, castor, and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat until the mixture gets fluffy and light.

Shaping: Using a large cookie scooper, scoop out eight evenly sized balls from the dough. Roll them in your palms and then coat them with crushed Graham crackers. Place them on a lined baking tray and press each ball until it reaches 3/4th inch in thickness. 

Bake: Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 180C (OTG mode: upper rod + lower rod + fan) for 9-10 minutes.

Cool: Let the cookies cool down in the tray itself for 10-15 minutes, and then transfer them to a cooling rack.

Creaming: Cream softened unsalted butter and cream cheese together in a bowl using a stand mixer or an electric hand beater. Beat until it turns fluffy. 

Add Sugar and Vanilla: Gradually add sifted icing sugar along with vanilla essence. Continue beating the mixture till the entire sugar dissolves and you get a voluminous frosting.
