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 😉


beat creamcheese, butter and sugars


..until light and fluffy; then add vanilla and the dry ingredients


..stir in chocolate chips cookies


drop dough onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake!


Makes more or less 2 dozen cookies, if you want to make a big batch for freezing, use the amount indicated inside the ( )

4 oz cream cheese, room temperature (8 oz)
1 sticks butter (1 cup or 2 sticks)
6 tablespoons sugar (3/4 cup)
6 tablespoons brown sugar (3/4 cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (2 teaspoons)
1 1/4 cups flour (2 1/2 cups)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda ( 1 teaspoon)
1 teaspoon coffee powder (2 teaspoons – 1 tablespoon)
pinch of salt (1/2 teaspoon)
1 cup or 6-7 ounces chocolate chips ( double or more, you decide, the more choco chips, the yummier!)

Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. In a bowl or sheet of parchment paper, combine flour, baking soda, salt and coffee powder, set aside. Beat butter, cream cheese, sugars and in a large bowl until light and fluffy.

Add flour mixture until blended. Do not overmix then stir in chocolate chips. Drop by heaping teaspoonful on ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart or use a small ice cream scoop if you have one, it’s easier.

Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Enjoy it warm with a cold glass of milk, or hot tea or coffee

Happy Baking!!  🙂

♥ Thanks, and have a nice day!!! 🙂 ♥

    Lately, I’ve been baking choc chip cookies for my son quite regular. Guess adding cream cheese would be a great combo! Thanks for sharing, would try adding cream cheese next! 😀

    Looks very delicious. These would be so good with a cup of hot milk in this freezing cold weather. Wish I can have some!
