Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies2 Comments

Do you ever have a moment where you can’t decide between two desserts? I don’t know about you, but this happens to me way more often that I like to admit. I have a craving for two desserts, but ultimately I have to choose one in the end. It makes for a really awkward moment when you are out dining somewhere and need to decide quickly. These particular cookies solve that exact predicament that you may find yourself in. Meet the marriage of two of my favorite desserts…the cheesecake and the chocolate chip cookie. I have been sitting on this recipe for way too long and ended up forgetting about them (sorry!). Sometimes that happens when you are an over planner just like me. There isn’t really much else to say about these cookies, but I can tell you that they were awesome and disappeared from our cookie jar way too quickly. So if you love cheesecake and you love chocolate chips then do yourself a favor and make a batch of these babies soon. Need another dessert merge idea, try the Brookie.
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
10 tablespoons butter (1 stick plus 2 tablespoons)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
3 ounces cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 ounces chocolate chips
What you’ll do: 
Preheat oven to 375. Combine dry ingredients (flour through soda) in a bowl and set aside. In mixer, blend butter, sugar, egg, cream cheese, and vanilla. Slowly add the dry ingredients, mixing with each addition, until all are incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Drop dough by the spoonful onto sheet, at least 1 inch apart.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown around edges.
Note: Dough can be refrigerated until firm, then rolled into a log and frozen (in air-tight freezer bag) for up to 1 month. When ready to bake, let thaw 30 minutes to 1 hour (until soft enough to slice); slice in 3/4″ wide disks and bake.
