Cheesecake cookies have been floating around in my head for a few months now. And I don’t mean cheesecake on top of a cookie, or cheesecake bars with a cookie crust, or cheesecake stuffed cookies. I don’t even mean cookies flavored with cheesecake pudding mix (although those are tasty ;) ).

No. I’ve been craving cookies that contained real cream cheese and a lot of it! And let me tell you, these do the trick! That cream cheese flavor comes bursting through with every bite and gives the cookie a luscious, soft texture unparallelled by other cookies.

And when it comes to REAL Cream Cheese flavor, no other brand does it quite like Philadelphia Cream Cheese does it! Here are four standards Philadelphia has for their cream cheese that sets them apart from the rest:

  • They only use fresh, local milk and real, wholesome cream, ensuring a delicious taste.
  • The ingredients go from farm to product to fridge in 6 days! That’s fresh, people!
  • Real, and only real, ingredients go into PHILADELPHIA’s cream cheeses.
  • Limited use of preservatives (and none at all in the bricks of cream cheese)!
