Hello Monday!

Have I got a great chocolate chip cookie recipe for you!
These are my favorite chocolate chip…hands down! I was once told that if Soft Batch cookies and the refrigerated pre-made Nestle Toll House cookies got married and had baby cookies, that these cookies would be their first born. I’ll let you judge for yourself!
Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe from Jenn
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 oz bag of milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine; set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix cream cheese and the butter. Beat on medium speed until creamy and light, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the brown sugar and mix well, add the egg and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
  • Slowly, add the flour mixture a little at a time, until well combined.
  • Fold in chocolate chips. I refrigerated dough for at least an hour, but you can skip that if you want.
  • Spoon about 2 tablespoons of dough onto greased cookie sheet.
  • Place in oven and bake for 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden.
  • Let rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
