Gingerbread Cheesecake Roll Ups

Gingerbread Cheesecake Roll Ups

Christmas is fast approaching! And nothing says Christmas like gingerbread! Enjoy one of Christmas’ favorite flavors in these Gingerbread Cheesecake Roll Ups.  They are easy to make and assemble yet look fancy on the serving platter. 

Gingerbread Cheesecake Roll Ups

The gingerbread cookie portion is made with a pizzelle baker. I received one of these when I was first married over 30 years ago and it is still going strong. Mine is a Rival 3 in 1 that makes Belgian waffles as well as grilled sandwiches. Unfortunately I don’t think they make the combo version anymore though.

To add the filling you can use a pastry bag or an electric cookie press. I inherited my electric cookie press from my mom. She owned one but was never much of a baker. So when I got married she gave it to me. After she passed away, I found this cookie press at her house so it now belongs to me as well. I mostly use my cookie press for making spritz cookies at Christmas and for filling things like deviled eggs and desserts. 

The filling for these was adapted from this recipe from Cooking On The Front Burners

For the cookies
  1. Preheat the pizzelle baker.
  2. In a medium size bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, melted butter and vanilla. Add in the flour, baking powder and gingerbread spice and mix well. Batter will be thick but should flow from a spoon.
  3. Add 1-2 tablespoons of batter to each section of the preheated baker. Close lid and cook according to the directions of your baker or until steaming stops (approximately 1 minute). They should be a light brown color.
  4. Remove with fork and roll into a cylinder shape while still warm. Dust with powdered sugar.
  1. Remove cheesecake filling from refrigerator. Put the filling in a pastry bag or cookie press then fill each cookie as desired.
  1. Filling and cookies can be made a day ahead of time. However it is best to fill the cookies right before serving so they are still crispy.
