Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies!!!

One of my first loves is baking. I've been baking since I was probably about 12, maybe even earlier. Coming up with recipes is sort of new to me. Here is one that I sell in my etsy shop.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies!!

1 c. butter (no substitutes), softened
¾ c. granulated sugar
¾ c. brown sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 lg. egg
2 ¼ c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.With an electric mixer cream butter and sugars until nice and creamy. Add cream cheese and continue to mix until all lumps are gone and it is nice and smooth. Add vanilla and egg and mix. Slowly add flour, a little at a time. Add baking soda and salt and mix well, but not too much! Turn off your mixer and add the chocolate chips, folding by hand with a rubber spatula. Scoop cookie dough by the rounded tablespoon onto a cookie sheet; make sure they aren’t too close though! Bake in your oven for 9-11 minutes, I do mine for 10. Cool on a rack and once they are all the way cool put into a plastic bag or container and keep in the fridge! Since they have cream cheese in them you don’t want them to spoil! These are the best chocolate chip cookies ever! They stay nice and moist!

So far, everyone that has tried them has loved them. Let me know if you make them, and how you like them! They are super yummy.
