Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until well combined.
  5. Gently fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  6. In another bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth.
  7. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, scoop out a portion of cookie dough and flatten it slightly. Place a small spoonful of cream cheese in the center, then fold the dough around it, sealing the edges.
  8. Place the filled cookie dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them apart to allow for spreading.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
  10. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
