Chocolate Cheesecake Cookies - total time 45 minutes

This is definitely a cookie to be enjoyed year round.  A sweet graham cracker cookie base topped with cheesecake.  You could make this cookie more of a mini cheesecake... but I made these for Christmas, so cookie it is!

1 pack of graham crackers, crushed
1 cup flour
.5 cup butter
.5 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
1 egg white (keep yolk for cheesecake)
1 tbsp baking powder

.5 cup cream cheese
.25 cup sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 yolk

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Crush graham crackers in mixer (I covered my mixer with a grocery bag to prevent any popping out and becoming doggy treats).
2.  Beat butter in mixer, add brown sugar, and continue to beat.  Add vanilla, egg white, and baking powder.  Mix graham cracker and flour together separately and then add flour mixture into wet mixture slowly until well combined.
3.  Combine cream cheese, sugar, yolk, and cocoa powder in a small mixing bowl.
4.  Form golf ball sized balls with the graham cracker dough.  Flatten and press spoon into dough to form cups.  Pour cheesecake mixture into cups and bake for 12 minutes.  Refrigerate after cooling.
