  • 1 3/4 cup all- purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter , softened
  • 1/4 cup brick-style cream cheese , softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips , semi-sweet, milk or dark


  • In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. 
  • In a large bowl beat together the butter, cream cheese and sugars using an electric mixer 
  • Mix in the egg and vanilla extract. 
  • Turn the mixer to low speed. Slowly add in the flour mixture about half at a time. 
  • Turn off the mixer and stir in the chocolate chips. 
  • Cover the bowl with clingfilm and chill for 90 minutes or overnight. 
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F degrees and let the dough sit at room temperature for 10 minutes. 
  • Scoop the dough into balls about 1.5 to 2 tablespoons in size. I got a total of 22. 
  • Place cookies 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. 
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until tops are just starting to set. 


*Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
**Cookie dough balls can be frozen in a ziploc bag for 2 months. Bake cookies from frozen - they'll likely bake for 1 extra minute.
