I’m a bit late to the party but I’m finally sharing my version of the highly requested Crumbl raspberry cheesecake cookie.
It is a combination of a thick, soft, and buttery graham cracker cookie that is actually made with crushed-up graham cracker cookies in the cookie dough and is also used to roll the cookies as well.

The next thing is the homemade frosting. It is made to reassemble the flavor and consistency of cheesecake. Of course, it’s a tad bit sweeter since it is used as frosting.
And last but not least, we have the raspberry jam. I am using storebought raspberry jam, but feel free to use homemade. I’m sure it will be even better!
