I woke up today with a major sweet tooth… (probably cause I need to increase my protein and decrease my sugar consumption)… anyway, I knew the only way to cure it was to get in the kitchen and bake away! So I threw on my apron, grabbed the butter and sugar and got busy! I did have a nice green drink before embarking on the sugar fest… balance in all things, mind you. Eat, Love, Repeat…
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies (Original recipe found HERE)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the cream cheese, butter, salt and sugar together until creamy. Add vanilla. Add flour and mix until dough forms. Stir in 3/4 cup chocolate chips.
- Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls or a cookie scoop onto a baking sheet that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 18-22 minutes or edges are light golden brown. Let cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to wire rack.
- If desired, melt 1/3 cup chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. Cool completely. About 36 cookies.
I added salt and vanilla, and decreased the sugar from the original recipe. These cookies are very rich. Eat with a glass of milk and enjoy!
Sweet tooth remedied.
