Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookies from @kitchenmagpie

Do you remember the Great Fridge Purge of Christmas ’14 that I have talked about before? The merciless using up of everything in my fridge and pantry before we left Edmonton and came here to Phoenix? I was a complete hard nose about it, we bought nothing excepting fresh fruit and vegetables for more than a month and used up everything out of my pantry, freezer and fridge.

Well, these cookies came about because I needed to use up chocolate chips from my pantry and cream cheese from my fridge. Yes, chocolate has an expiry date and I had several bags of chocolate baking chips that I had to use up before we left. Apparently I need to be checking the dates when I purchase chocolate chips because there should have been no way that I had bags bordering on expiring, not with how often I bake!


And so these cookies were born. I was surprised, in all honesty, how seriously darn good they are. They are richer, tangier and most certainly moister with cream cheese baked into them.

I also cranked up the amount of vanilla and trust me, you want to use a tablespoon. It adds to the whole cheesecake taste that we are going for.

It’s a good thing I don’t make resolutions, because these cookies are a diet-breaker. There’s no way that you can eat just one of these!

So, are you on board with giving these a whirl? I’m really dying to know what you think!

Happy Baking!

Love you more than chocolate,

I didn’t think that one could improve on chocolate chip cookies, but it turns out I was wrong! Cream cheese gives these cookies a rich, tangy taste that I’m absolutely in love with!


  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 cups chocolate chips


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Beat together the butter,white sugar, brown sugar, and cream cheese.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla, mix well.
  4. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to the wet ingredients slowly, mixing well after each addition.
  5. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  6. Using a standard cookie scoop or a tablespoonful, drop dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets.Bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes until the edges are browned and baked. Remove and cool on cookie sheets.
  7. The secret to these is to make sure you underbake them slightly.
