Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookies

Saw these on Pinterest, had to try them. Delicious.

Original here. My changes reflect several batches and realizing that I really like them to have more of a cheesecake flavor, so I use more.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
6 oz light cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 ounces chocolate chips – I used about 10 oz, but all I had were milk chocolate chips…will use semi-sweet next time!

Preheat oven to 375.

Combine dry ingredients (flour through soda) in a bowl and set aside. In mixer, blend butter, sugar, egg, cream cheese, and vanilla. Slowly add the dry ingredients, mixing with each addition, until all are incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Grease a cookie sheet. Drop dough by the spoonful onto sheet lined with parchment paper, or better yet, a silicone mat, at least 1 inch apart.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes, but watch carefully…I took these out of the oven right before the “golden brown around the edges” stage and they were PERFECT.

lovely, i know, cooling on a paper towel...but i was lazy and didn't get out my cooling racks.
