Ingredients:


For the Cheesecake Filling:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Cookie Dough:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Instructions:


Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
Prepare the Cheesecake Filling: In a small bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
Prepare the Cookie Dough: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract, and beat until well combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft cookie dough forms. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Assemble the Cookies: Using a cookie scoop or spoon, scoop out a tablespoon of cookie dough. Flatten it slightly with your palm. Place a small spoonful of the cheesecake filling in the center of the dough. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling, sealing it inside. Roll the dough into a ball and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling, spacing the cookies a few inches apart.
Bake: Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Serve and Enjoy: Once cooled, serve the Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies and enjoy them with a glass of milk or your favorite hot beverage.
