Do you have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe? I do, too. I could practically mix the dough and plop them in the oven in my sleep. That said, I’m not against trying something new when I want to switch things up. When I saw these on mel’s kitchen café, I was curious enough to give them a try.
It was the addition of cream cheese to the cookies that grabbed my attention. How could you go wrong by starting with soft, chocolate-studded cookies and adding the tangy flavor of cream cheese? And since the butter had to be melted first, I thought I may as well brown it, too. It sounded like a win-win to me. The last thing I noticed was the lack of eggs, which is great if you happen to be baking for someone with an egg allergy. I don’t recall ever making this type of cookie without eggs to hold everything together.
