Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a mighty fine chocolate chip cookie with just enough cream cheese that you can taste that little bit of tanginess. I love that! Only made a half-batch, as that’s how much cream cheese I had, but I’d happily eat twice as many of these!

IMG_9060Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt, and set aside.

Cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.

IMG_9054Beat in the cream cheese and vanilla.

IMG_9055Beat in the flour mixture.

IMG_9056Stir in the chocolate chips. I only have bigger chocolate disks, so these were always going to be lumpy cookies.

Place the dough on ungreased baking sheets by heaping tablespoonsful. Mine were probably extra-heaping? That’s fiiine.

IMG_9057Bake 9-11 minutes, until golden brown.

IMG_9058Let cool on the pan at least 10 minutes – these ones are very soft straight out of the oven, and will fall apart on you if you don’t give them a bit to firm up. After that, go ahead and enjoy!
