Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

Melissa Marsh

This is a slightly healthier version of traditional chocolate chip cookies because margarine and cream cheese replace straight butter. They bake up moist and cake-like and have a delicious taste. I always gets rave reviews!

Whereas this recipe would have passed for "healthier" 5 years ago, TransFat has been proven to be the unhealthy pseudo-fat that it is. Want healthy? Stick to the regular recipes, and downsize your intake! Don't use Margarine or regular shortening in your cooking! These cookies were flavorless, and my Mother won't be making them again.

I used butter instead of margerine and I doubled the chips called for. Because I wanted a less cakey cooky, I used baking SODA instead of powder. I agree with another reviewer that the uncooked dough was really fantastic but when you cook it, it dosen't taste as good. Sounds bizarre but it's true. This makes a ton, way more than 12 servings, unless each person has four or five cookies. 375* for ten minutes was just right. This would be GREAT with white chocolate chips and craisins. NOTE: I did use fat free cream cheese but I think that was kind of like putting the cart before the horse, if you really think about it.

These are awesome. Really rich and tasty. I'm glad I went to the store to get milk chocolate chips, though; semi-sweet would probably not have been as good. I flattened them a little before baking, and yes they do hold their exact shape! Thanks for a great recipe!
