Who doesn't like Cream Cheese?! My husband's cousin posted the recipe of these cookies on Facebook and I just HAD to make them. And want to know the best part? Eggs are not required!! So feel free to feed your kids all the dough you want with no worries!
Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 5-6 oz cream cheese, softened
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 cups plus 3 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment
Cream together the butter, cream cheese and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the Vanilla.
Sift together dry ingredients and then add them to the butter mixture. Beat until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
*original recipe suggests chilling the dough overnight but I made them right away
Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake 12-14 minutes or until edges are looking light golden brown.
Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheets before moving to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes approximately 60 cookies.
***With it being autumn now, I just thought of putting a little bit of cinnamon in it next time I make this batch. Sounds enticing!!
