Sugar Cookie Squares with White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Frosting

04.02.2012

I just can’t get enough of the sugar cookie squares! Yesterday I was making the original Sugar Cookie Squares with Vanilla Frosting and was thinking of what other combinations would be good with these squares. The best that came to mind, these Sugar Cookie Squares frosted with decadent White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Frosting. They basically melt in your mouth while the combinations of sweet yet tangy cream cheese with natural berry goodness tantalize your taste buds.  White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts so I thought this would be a great combination of cookie and cheesecake. Let me tell you it most definitely is!  The great thing about these is that you get the cheesecake flavors without waiting 9 hours for a cheesecake to bake then set in the refrigerator.  The cookie portion of this recipe is so incredibly simple, that is one other reason it’s one of my favorites to do variations on.  I hope you enjoy this version as much as I do!

Also, this frosting would be incredible on a vanilla, chocolate or angel food cake, just keep in mind it has a slightly runnier consistency than your average butter cream frosting  so it not ideal for piping.
