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, light brown sugar, cane sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix on low until combined, then mix for 5 minutes or until it is light in color and fluffy. 

Add the milk, cream cheese, flour, baking soda, and sea salt in that order. Mix on low until combined. 

Add the chocolate chip sand sprinkles and mix on low until combined.

Step 3

Using your hands (or a 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop) roll the cookie dough into balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour, or overnight if you want.

Step 4

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a second baking sheet with parchment paper. Transfer 12 of the cookie dough balls onto the second baking sheet, and space all the dough balls at least 1-inch apart. 

Step 5

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until lightly golden brown on the bottoms. 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).

Baker's Tips

Use Soft Butter

Using soft butter is crucial in soft and chewy cookies that have eggs or that are eggless. So, just like Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies require soft butter, these Sprinkle Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies do too.

Make sure to leave butter out on the counter and let it soft naturally at room temperature. If you must soften butter in the microwave, only do 10 seconds per ½ cup at a time, even if you have to do multiple intervals. I hate softening butter in the microwave as it melts pockets of the butter at a time and doesn’t soften evenly like it does when it sits out. So, plan to bake cookies ahead of time and soften your butter the right way.

Cream Butter & Sugars

Make sure to take the time to cream the butter and sugars together. Because there are no eggs in these cookies, we want to add air into the butter to create a great texture when the cookies are baked. Creaming the butter and sugars together will take about 5 minutes, you can set a timer, and then check your cookie dough then. How do you know if it’s creamed? The butter and sugar mixture will look noticeably lighter in color and it will be whipped, almost like a whipped cream cheese texture vs a regular cream cheese.

Milk

I add milk into these cookies for fat and flavor in place of eggs. If you don’t want to use traditional cow’s milk, you can use coconut milk, almond milk, pistachio milk, or oat milk!

Dark Chocolate

I use dark chocolate here, but you can use semi sweet, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. Whatever you want, you can easily swap it out!

Scooping or Balling

You can use a 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop for this recipe, or you can portion them out and roll with your hands. Either way will work. If you know me, then you know I loathe cookie scoops as I am terrible at using them, so I always use my hands! But whatever works best for you is what you should do. Watch my struggle below.

Refrigerate

Refrigerating helps with two things in this recipe. It helps with cookie spread so they don’t spread too much in the oven. But it also helps them become even more chewy as the fat has time to chill in the fridge. So, chill for at least 1 hour, but you can also chill overnight!

Bake Until Golden Brown

Make sure to bake these cookies until they are golden brown on the bottoms and edges. Trust me, they will still be incredibly soft and chewy thanks to the creamed butter, milk, and cream cheese! But, if you like a really doughy cookie, you can bake for a few minutes less.

Storage

Make sure to store these in an airtight container. While they will stay softer than cookies with eggs, they still should be stored properly. Use an airtight container like a Tupperware or zipbag!

FAQ's

Can I make these vegan?

Yes, just replace the butter with your favorite vegan butter or shortening. And replace the milk with coconut, oat, or almond milk and the cream cheese with vegan cream cheese, like Miyoko's (that's my fave!).

How do you store eggless cookies?

These eggless cookies are soft and chewy, so they need to be stored in an airtight container.
