1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Meanwhile, lay out parchment paper on your baking sheets.
Take a large mixing bowl and cream together the butter, cream cheese, white sugar, and brown sugar until it’s smooth and creamy.
Incorporate the egg and vanilla extract into the mixture, beating well to combine thoroughly.
In a different bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Whisk them together.
Slowly fold the dry ingredient mixture into the wet ingredients until you achieve a consistent cookie dough.
Gently fold in the chocolate chips into the dough.
For best results, cover your dough with plastic wrap and let it chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
Roll the dough into small balls (around 1 to 1.5 inches) and arrange them on your prepared baking sheets.
Bake in the oven for approximately 10-12 minutes, or until you notice the edges taking on a golden hue.
Post baking, allow the cookies to cool on the sheets for about 5 minutes. Afterward, move them to a wire rack for complete cooling.
Once cooled, dig into your freshly baked Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies! For maximum freshness, store them in a sealed container, and they’ll be good for up to a week. Enjoy the tantalizing mix of flavors!
