My video on how to make this:

Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup cream cheese, softened (use cream cheese in a block or spreadable, don’t use fat-free, light or whipped)
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt
2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

In your stand mixer  with the paddle attachment, combine: butter, cream cheese, sugars, egg, vanilla, and beat on level 4-5 speed until well-creamed, light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Add: flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt, and mix until you get it all combined.
Add chocolate chips, and mix lightly using the stand mixer OR fold in by hand using spatula.
Using a cookie spoon, make 2 inch balls on a well greased cookie sheet. Flatten with your hand and place in the fridge for an hour to get cold.
Preheat oven to 350F

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges have set….. but not longer than 10 minutes. Leave cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes after baking, where they will continue to bake. Then set on a cookie rack to finish cooling.

eggs. Mix.

baking soda
Mix well.
Add 1 cup chocolate chips.
Mix well.
Add remaining half cup of chocolate chips, sprinkled on top.

Place in a Pyrex dish or pan. I covered mine with parchment paper, and placed brownie mix ontop of the paper, making lifting it from my pyrex dish a breeze! this way you can lift it to cool completely, and cut it up with no mess!
Back at 350 for sppx 30 min. Check center with toothpick and watch the sides…. once they start to crinkle and cook, it’s done. Remove from oven, allow to cool 15 minutes. lift parchment paper out and place on cooling rack to continue to cool. Slice, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve. Or serve it with ice cream. YUM!!!!
