Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe with whipped cream cheese. The cream cheese adds a delicious texture and I think they are the best I have ever made so far. They are easy to make. The trick is to get them out of the oven just when the bottom is starting to brown- a little before the center is fully cooked.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, 1/2 cup white sugar, and salt. Set aside.
In small mixing bowl, whip together cream cheese and 1/2 cup white sugar until well blended.
In a separate medium mixing bowl, cream together the melted butter and brown sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until creamy. Mix together ingredients of both bowls only until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Use cookie scoop or spoon and form cookies- cookies bake to about twice the size.
Bake for approximately 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until right before the cookie is fully baked. The cookie will finish baking after you take it out of the oven. (Be careful not to overtake or undertake. This is the most important step to delicious cookies.) Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes then scoop onto wire rack or paper. Cool completely before packaging or plating.

Serve at your Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, or Christmas dinner over the holidays or bake them for your friends.

  2. OMG…It’s a gorgeous day out in Montauk and instead of baking in the sun I decided to make your cream cheese chocolate chip cookies!!! They taste great! I wasn’t able to fill a plate becuase as they came out my guests would walk over and help themselves! Everyone thinks these are the best they’ve ever tasted! I’m planning to make your layer cake next! Thank you!


      • Hi Kate,
        I’ve made your cookies again . This time I used softened butter as opposed to melted. They came out great but they still don’t look like yours do. Mine come out flatter than yours. Not sure why😋 In any event if u r ever out in Montauk again…. I’m inviting you to come bake… 🌺
        PS.. My friend’s daughter attends FIT. She is running for best design out of three people. Why are you not entered? Your designs are classic and sophisticated??


  3. Hi Kate! You mentioned your Grandmother’s recipes and “seasoned pretzels”. Any chance you’d share that with us? Thanks!! Have a great week!
