Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies May 9, 2012

The amount of butter for a traditional chocolate chip cookie is reduced and replaced with a good dose of cream cheese. These cookies are a little cake-y and just the right amount of sweet.

 

Ingredients

 

2  1/2 cups plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter, softened

8 oz cream cheese, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup light brown sugar

2 eggs

1  1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1  1/2 cups chocolate chips

 

Method

 

Preheat oven to 175C/350F/gas mark 4. Line baking sheets with baking parchment.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Beat butter, cream cheese, sugar, and brown sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in vanilla.

Gradually add flour mixture, mixing until combined. Add chocolate chips, stirring until dough is thoroughly mixed.

Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared pans. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. (These cookies will not brown like classic chocolate chip cookies.)

Cool cookies completely on pan on wire racks.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
