Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ¼ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semi-sweet, bittersweet or milk chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl or the bowl of an electric stand mixer, cream together the cream cheese and melted butter until smooth and creamy. Add brown sugar and granulated sugar; beating until light and fluffy. Mix in the vanilla.

  3. In a sperate bowl, stir together the baking soda, salt and unbleached all-purpose flour.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients, a little at a time, to the butter mixture mixing just until combined.
  5. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop and roll the dough into 1 to 1 1/2-inch balls and place about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten each ball slightly with the palm of your hand, just barely pressing (you don't need to flatten the ball of dough all the way).

  7. Bake the cookies in the preheated 325 degree oven for 12-14 minutes, or just until the edges are just barely golden brown and the centers are still light in color. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. 
  8. Enjoy immediately or store in an air tight container on the counter for up to one week.*

Recipe Notes

*Cookies are excellent reheated in the microwave for 10-12 seconds.
