Soft Batch Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F and grease a baking sheet with butter or nonstick spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the sugars, egg, and vanilla and beat again on medium-high until light and fluffy, about 7 minutes.
  3. Add flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt and mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop out cookie dough and flatten mounds slightly using your palm. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  5. Once chilled, place cookies on prepared baking sheet 2 inches apart (about 8 cookies per sheet) and bake until edges have set, 8-9 minutes. Cookies will look slightly undercooked and pale in the center; they’ll firm up as they cool.
  6. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
