Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi Y'all! 

Ok, so I know I've been very lacking lately.. I apologize for that. I have been lacking in motivation to do any baking, reading, and blogging. I am hoping that the new place we just moved into will inspire me to bake more! My kitchen is soo much bigger! Also I will be starting a new/second job soon, which should be tons of fun! That means I will have more money to spend on ingredients! We recently just got an ice cream maker, so look forward to many ice cream posts!!

As for now I have a super awesome chocolate chip cookie recipe for you! I have made two batches of these in the last week and have been asked to make another batch for a co-worker. That's how awesome they are! Lol! I do believe these will be my new go-to cookies.. I hope you enjoy!

Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies:
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
12 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips

 Preheat the oven to 325°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray. In bowl of an electric stand mixer, cream together the cream cheese, melted butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Mix in the vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the chocolate chips and mix until combined and no dry streaks remain.

Roll the dough into 1 to 1 1/2-inch balls and place about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten each ball slightly with the palm of your hand (just barely press, it doesn't need to be completely flat). Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes until the edges are just barely golden brown. Let the cookies cool for a minute on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Eat and Enjoy!
