Sometimes I like to bake cookies at 10:30 at night. Just because . Even after Mariah tells me no because of the influx of baked goods that will be whipped up this weekend . But like it just sounded so much more inviting than my economics homework.
Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies
source: Elegant Made Easy
6 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups plus 3 tbsp all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment or spray with non-stick spray.
2. Cream together the butter, cream cheese and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the Vanilla. Sift together dry ingredients and then add them to the butter mixture. Beat until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Place a large scoop (about 2 tbsp) on the prepared cookie sheet and flatten slightly with your hand. Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are looking light golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheets before moving to wire racks to cool completely.
And sometimes I like to eat these hot out of then oven after coming home from the gym. Opps.
