Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, dark brown sugar, cane sugar, and vanilla extract. Cream butter and sugar for 5 minutes, until it looks light and fluffy.

Add the egg, cream cheese, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt in that order. Mix on low until combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix to combine.

Step 3

Form the cookie dough into 12 balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten them just slightly so they are about 2-inches in diameter. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step 4

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Transfer half the cookie dough to the second baking sheet, spread out the dough balls evenly on each baking sheet.

Step 5

Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheets. (If you're baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions).

FAQ's

Can I make these gluten free?

Yes! I provide a simple adjustment in the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for gluten free. I even link to the gluten free flour I used to test these.

Can I use another kind of chocolate?

Yes, feel free to use any kind of chocolate you like. That could be semi sweet chocolate chips or even a chopped up chocolate bar that is either milk or dark chocolate. You can even use white chocolate chips!

How should I store these?

These cookies are soft and chewy, so they need to be stored in an airtight container or under a cake dome.
