These Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies are easy to make with just a handful of simple ingredients and topped with blueberry pie filling.
I’ve always loved cheesecake. It is so soft, creamy and has just the right amount of sweetness. I like just your classic cheesecake recipe with some sort of fruit on top. My son loves the more rich, chocolate flavors like this Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake. But, whatever your specific tastes are, most of us all love cheesecake in one form or another. So, I figured I HAD to share this Blueberry Cheesecake Cookie Recipe with everyone!
