could I make these cookies ahead of time?
This recipe can definitely be made ahead of time.
If you are planning to make them about 2-3 days in advance, I recommend rolling them into balls, rolling them in the graham cracker crumbs, and indenting them, then placing them in the fridge until ready to bake.
If you plan on making them more than 3 days in advance, we recommend freezing the cookie dough.
We don’t necessarily think refrigerating or freezing the baked and topped cookie, is the best idea, because it will thaw funny, and the cherry glaze will seep into the cookie, making it soggy.
For best results, we recommend making them fresh, and only making the cookie dough, ahead of time.
what other flavors could I make, besides cherry?
I love a classic cherry pie, but you could really do any classic cheesecake combination. Here are a few of my recommendations:
-Melted chocolate chip drizzle
-Cinnamon and sugar topping
-Turtle (pecan, chocolate, and caramel sauce)
You could really add any of your favorite fruit toppings, or cheesecake toppings you desire. I personally love these with a fresh raspberry on top.
how should I store these before serving?
If you have an hour or two before serving them to guests, family, or friends, we recommend refrigerating them.
The fruit and cheesecake taste best when they are cold. We do not recommend freezing them, because it will turn the texture a little funny.
If serving them the same day, place them in the fridge until you are just ready to serve them.
