Scoop large balls of cookie dough (I just used a large spoon) onto the baking sheet. Using the back of the spoon or your thumb, press an indent into the center of the cookie dough and place the vegan cream cheese.
Form the dough into a ball around the cream cheese. Be sure it is completely sealed inside. Make sure to space the cookies about 3 inches apart.
Bake for 12-14 minutes until the cookies are just set in the middle.
