Intending to cross an item off of my culinary bucket list, pomegranate French macarons were going to be made for this post. Sadly, they require a full day in the kitchen to make, and I can’t find that much time right now.
So, with a fresh container of pomegranate arils in the fridge, I’m normally happy as a clam to toss them into my Greek yogurt. But instead, making pretty pink cheesecake filling for pomegranate cheesecake cookies was the plan. After all, with a theme like Valentine’s Day, pink and red cookies fit the bill perfectly.
For the cookie base, I used my recipe for “Boo’s Best” Chocolate Chip Cookies, swapping vanilla extract for lemon, and leaving out the chocolate chips.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day, this will be my first one married to my Hasome man. I’m not kidding when I say I’m swooning over the idea of making a romantic dinner for Brian. I’ve been filling my Pinterest boards with dinner ideas, and I can’t wait to share them with you. You ARE following me on Pinterest, aren’t you?
I hope you love these pomegranate cheesecake cookies!
