Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookies

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! #cookies #chocolatechip #cheesecake

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 cups chocolate chips


  • Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Beat together the butter,white sugar, brown sugar, and cream cheese.
  • Add the egg and vanilla, mix well.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to the wet ingredients slowly, mixing well after each addition.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • 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.
  • The secret to these is to make sure you underbake them slightly.
