These cookies with cream cheese and chocolate chip simply melt in your mouth. Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies are simple, light and delicious, my favorite cookie recipe.
I often prepare them, for breakfast, with a glass of milk, for snack with a cup of tea or coffee, or whenever I crave for something sweet… I could eat them all the time. I like that they are simple, yet so delicious. My family and I prefer cookies that are not too sweet, but you can always add some sugar, if you wish. I usually make double dose of Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies so that we can enjoy them for a few days.
1¼ cup all purpose flour
¼ cup cornstarch
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 large egg
1 tablespoon milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1¼ cup powdered sugar
5-6 tablespoon chocolate chip
In a medium bowl combine flour, cornstarch and baking powder. Leave aside. In a large bowl mix butter and cream cheese, with an electric mixer on medium speed, until it is fine and creamy. Add an egg, milk and vanilla extract and continue mixing. Then, add powder sugar and mix some more until the mixture is fluffy. Add dry ingredients and mix until you get fine dough. Finally, add chocolate chips and stir well. Leave in fridge for an hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Take the dough out of the fridge. Shape it into balls. Place them in the baking sheets, 1.5 inch apart. Flatten the balls using your hands or some firm object. Sprinkle some chocolate chip, if you wish. Bake for 10 minutes. Take them out of the oven and leave to cool in the baking sheets for a few minutes. Transfer them to a wire rack to cool down completely.
Store them in well sealed container, at a room temperature, for about three days.
