According to the brand new parents, Carissa and Nick, these are some pretty amazing cookies :) The sous chef and I went with some other friends to celebrate and congratulate C&N on the arrival on their new twin girls, and I brought these delicious cookies with us. I trust C&N’s taste as C is a pretty good cook/baker herself. Not to mention, the sous chef loved these himself. I, too, have to admit that these rank right up there with another one of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes.
I was also pretty excited to share in making the first post for The Way the Cookie Crumbles. I think she does a fabulous job with her blog, and I was shocked that I migrated all the way to her first post! It was pretty exciting to do this as I don’t think I’ve done this with any other blog that I follow.
Nonetheless, make a trip to grab some cream cheese and pop these babies in the oven!
Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/2 cups (12 1/2 ounces) unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
16 tablespoons (2 sticks) butter, softened
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 cup (5 1/4 ounces) light brown sugar
3/4 cup (5 1/4 ounces) granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk the flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl; set aside. Beat butter, cream cheese, and sugars until creamy; add egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Add flour mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough by 1-inch spoonfuls onto cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake until brown around edges and center is set. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes; transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
