A recent article on Serious Eats featuring Brazilian cheese puffs had me craving these chewy treats again.

I’ve made them before, but I previously only knew them as Korean tapioca bread (also sometimes called mochi bread in Japanese bakeries).

I go through a lot of different cravings. The theme for these past weeks seem to be desserts involving oreos. Last week I made some chocolate oreo stuffed cookies.  I still had some oreos leftover and wanted to make another oreo dessert.

I saw cheesecake cookies covered in crushed oreos on Brown Eyed Baker. I knew I immediately had to try these. I’ve never had a cheesecake cookie before but it sounded delicious. Covering the cookies in oreo cookie crumbs makes these cookies look even more appealing.


I love sugar donut muffins. They are so easy to make and they taste a lot like cake donuts, but much healthier. I’ve made them multiple times now but I realized recently that I never put the original version on this blog. Instead, I’ve done all the variations on the original recipe.

So here is the original version. A sugar donut muffin that is then rolled in a cinnamon sugar mixture. They might look as cute as ones dipped in chocolate or some of the other versions I’ve made, but they still taste delicious.
