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, are so soft and yummy.

- 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 large egg

- In a stand mixer mix butter and cream cheese, on medium speed, until it is fine and creamy.
- Add egg, milk, and vanilla extract and continue mixing.
- Then, add powder sugar and mix some more until the mixture is fluffy.
