Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

My friend Rachael told me about this intriguing recipe and sent it over with this description.  It’s really distinctive in flavor and so glad she is sharing with us!  Rachael:  “This is a recipe that my husband brought home from a work potluck years ago and said, “You have to make these!” I love them because they are sweet and savory. This recipe is for lovers of all things cream cheese! It is a soft cookie that bakes white on the top and is golden on the bottom. Using real butter is a must (I use to be cheap during college years and would bake with margarine all the time and have seen the error of my ways). Make up a batch of these and see if you like them as much as our family does.”

    We make a lot of chocolate chip cookies. We even made a batch today to take to my son Casey’s baseball team. They won regional last night and are headed this week to the state finals. Anyway, I have never made chocolate chip cookies with cream cheese. I wish I would have thought about it. I bet it makes them extremely soft. I love a soft cookie. I am wondering if the cream cheese make the cookies softer for a longer time.

    My cookies did not spread at all on the cookie sheet when baking. They taste good and are soft. I just don’t know why. Any ideas??

      Boy, I don’t know why?!!! I am so sorry, maybe the altitude? Or when I measure my flour, I always stir it up, then spoon it into my measuring cup and level it off with the back of a table knife. Flour can settle and give you more in a ‘scoop’ than you think you are getting. Could this be a possibility? I have information like that in my cookbook in my store if you’re interested, but my first thought is that too much flour. Let me know if you try that. Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
