Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies.

June 14, 2012 Post a comment


These could very well be the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever tried!  Pretty big compliment as I’m 40 years old and have had the pleasure, and sometimes displeasure, of sampling chocolate chip cookies my entire life.  Now, I rarely, EVER, make unhealthy cookies for my family but with our first swim meet tonight… I wanted to make them a special treat :)


6 ounces of softened reduced fat cream cheese
3/4 cup of softened butter
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of sugar – I used Truvia.
2 tsp of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups + 3 tablespoons  of all purpose flour
2 cups of chocolate chips (dark 60% cocoa)


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Cream together butter, cream cheese and sugars until fluffy in your stand mixer with the paddle attachment on.  Add the vanilla.  The sift all of the dry ingredients and then add to the butter mixture.  Blend but avoid over-mixing.  Add the chocolate chips and stir by hand.

Drop with scooper onto your cookie sheet.  Leave 1-2 inches in between each one.  Bake for 14-18 minutes depending on your oven.  Should be golden brown along the edges.

I have heard of cream cheese in chocolate chip cookies! BUT they look so delicious! Hope you had a fun night and your family enjoyed the cookies. Need to put this on my list of “must try” cookies! Enjoy your weekend!

How many cookies does this recipe make?

Depending on the size I think, if remembering correctly, I made smaller sized cookies and it was around 28-30.
