Cream cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

If  you love chocolate chip cookies, you’ll love the addition of creamcheese  and  a touch of coffee to this classic favorite.   These cookies are best eaten freshly baked with a glass of cold milk but I leave that to the kids, I like  these with steaming cup of green tea or coffee…yum!

Though you may store the leftover/ excess cookies, I find that it doesn’t taste as good as when it’s warm with the chocolate chips still soft when you bite into each cookie..and the crunch or crispness around the edge is not there anymore when it’s cold; so, I usually bake these cookies in small quantities. I freeze the extra dough balls in a baking tray then put them in a ziplock bag then back in the freezer* for use in case of emergency cookie cravings ;)
