This Keto Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies recipe is a ketofied version of a super popular recipe I have had on the blog for quite some time now.
It took me a bit to get to it, and I am not sure why. I am a little slow at times I guess. You would think I would tackle the carby versions of my favorite foods as quickly as possible right?
I think maybe I just assumed that there was no way I could come close to the original version as a keto recipe, but that couldn't be farther from the truth!
I have to admit that I have never been a big baker, and if you have followed me for a while you know that. I was pretty much a box baker for the most part in my past. My daughter is actually the one that got the baking gene, not me.
But, a friend of mine in the keto world has really given me the inspiration to get my keto bake on. She makes some of the most delicious keto treats I have ever seen. Her name is Carolyn and her blog is All Day I Dream About Food. If you don't follow her do it now!
She has a recipe for Keto Angel Food Cake that is a must-make!!
So I decided to tackle the old recipe. I was worried it wouldn't come out comparable to the regular version though. It is one of my favorite cookies and I knew I would be super bummed if I couldn't come close to the original with my keto version.
The first couple of tries were a flop, which made my anxiety go through the roof.
There are recipes that, if they don't work out, I don't really care about. I mean, I want to make yummy food but I know not everything will translate from the regular version to a keto version and I am OK with that.
But this recipe? I wanted to knock it out of the park.
The good news is I did it!
Yay me *insert happy foodie dance*
Want to know how I knew for sure I nailed it?
The Mr had some work done on his car, and the mechanic gave him a good deal. He of course is my number 1 taste tester for all of my recipes. He is sooooo far from keto it isn't even funny so if he likes something, I know it is good.
He requested that I make 2 dozen of these cookies to give to the auto shop as a thank-you!
If that isn't a testimate to how good these cookies are I really don't know what is!!

FAQ about Keto Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies
I have not tried it myself so I can't say 100% that they would come out the same but I do know that there are some fabulous dairy-free creamed cheese and butter substitutes out there. If you give it a try please let me know how they come out!
Absolutely! I would recommend that you freeze it after you scoop and press it out for the individual cookies. Once you do that, place the baking sheet in the freezer. After the cookies are frozen just pop them into a zipper-top bag, or freezer-safe airtight container. When you are ready to bake, take the cookies out of the freezer and place them in the refrigerator overnight. Then bake as usual. The baking time might be a bit more if they are cold, just watch the cookies and take them out when they begin to turn golden brown.
Due to the high amount of dairy in them, I recommend storing them in the refrigerator for up to a week.
