The first time I tried chocolate chip cookies was Ree Drummond’s Choc Chip Cookies with Lays Potato Chips and they were my ‘go-to’ choc chip cookies, until now … Cream Cheese Choc Chip Cookies, soooooo soft and yummy.

Method for the best ever Cream Cheese Choc Chip Cookies:

  2. In a stand mixer mix butter and cream cheese, on medium speed, until it is fine and creamy.
  3. Add egg, milk and vanilla extract and continue mixing.
  4. Then, add powder sugar and mix some more until the mixture is fluffy.
  5. Put in dry ingredients and mix until you get a fine dough.
  6. Finally, add mini chocolate chips and stir well. Leave in the fridge for an hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  8. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  9. Take the dough out of the fridge.
  10. Shape it into balls (24-26 balls). (You may need 2 sheets).
  11. Place them on the baking sheets, 1½ inches apart.
  12. Flatten the balls using your hands or some firm object.
  13. Sprinkle some mini chocolate chip, if you wish.
  14. Bake for 10 minutes.
