Cream cheese gives these cookies a rich, tangy taste that I’m absolutely in love with! 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.

Karlynn’s Quick Tip

When you add cream cheese to a cookie it adds moisture that the cookie will keep even after baking. It keeps it chewier just like my Thick & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. If you are an oatmeal fan why not try my Chewy Oatmeal Coconut Cookies?

Karlynn’s Baking Tip

The secret to these cookies staying wonderfully chewy is to make sure you underbake them slightly and they will be perfect every time!

Making these cheesecake chocolate chip cookies is the perfect way to change up the standard chocolate chip cookie flavor in a good way. Also by adding 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract as it adds to the whole cheesecake taste that we are going for.

Happy Baking!
