Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies

I often prepare them,  for breakfast, with a glass of milk,  for snack with a cup of tea or coffee, or whenever I crave for something sweet… I could eat them all the time.  I like that they are simple, yet so delicious.

My family and I prefer cookies that are not too sweet, but you can always add some sugar, if you wish.

I usually make double dose of Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies so that we can enjoy them for a few days.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies

Instead of mini chocolate chips, you can use pecans, M and M candies, sprinkles, Oreo cookies or any ingredient that you like, and make your perfect combination.

You can make a double dose, or two or more combinations. In that way you get a couple of different tastes, from one piece of dough.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies are soft, and they melt in your mouth. Kids love them as much as grownups, they are perfect for the whole family.

How to make Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies?

In a medium bowl combine flour, cornstarch and baking powder. Leave aside. In a large bowl mix butter and cream cheese, with an electric mixer on medium speed, until it is fine and creamy. After that add an egg, milk and vanilla extract and continue mixing.

Then, add powder sugar and mix some more until the mixture is fluffy. Put in dry ingredients and mix until you get fine dough. Finally, add mini chocolate chips and stir well. Leave in fridge for an hour. Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Take the dough out of the fridge. Shape it into balls (24-26 balls). Place them in the baking sheets, 1.5 inch apart. Flatten the balls using your hands or some firm object.

Sprinkle some mini chocolate chip, if you wish. Bake for 10 minutes. Take them out of the oven and leave to cool in the baking sheets for a few minutes. Transfer them to a wire rack to cool down completely.

So tasty, delicious and easy to make! I love this Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies because they aren’t too sweet and heavy (100 Calories per cookie).

NOTES:

To keep the freshness you can store them in airtight container. Cookies can be frozen up to one month if stored correctly! I wouldn’t recommend storing cookies in the fridge, because they will lose the softness and freshness.  

You can add cream cheese for more flavor.

I used cornstarch for this recipe in order to get the fine texture of cookies, but you can use flour as a substitute for cornstarch, in proportion 2:1.

You can use potato starch instead of corn flour. If you have some allergic to egg, you can replace egg with 1/2 of mashed bananas, 3 tablespoons of puree apple.. then it’s necessary to add another 1/2 tsp of baking powder.

Also you can use blueberries and M&M’S instead of chocolate chips. I used 1.5 – 2 tbsp of dough. Cookie size is about 2.5 inches. 

Feel free to substitute coconut flour for all-purpose flour at a 1:4 ratio, and add 1 egg for every 1/4 cup coconut flour.

WELL, THIS WAS JUST A SHORT VERSION OF THE RECIPE THAT YOU CAN FIND AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST, ALONG WITH THE QUANTITIES OF THE NECESSARY INGREDIENTS.

Hi Dragana,

If I wanted to increase the cream cheese and powdered sugar, do I adjust the flour too?

Dragana

Saturday 20th of January 2024

Hi, you can increase all other ingredients proportionally.

I made these today and they are bland. You can't taste the cream cheese at all. They taste more like a plain biscuit than a cookie. I can't serve them as a dessert to my guests.

Hi Pam,

These are more cookies than a classic dessert. We made a note that you can add more cream cheese for more flavor. Cookies are better for breakfast because they have a mild taste.

Best, Dragana

I can't wait to try this recipe super soon because I already used up the cream cheese I had. I am going to add dried cranberries and another time grated orange peel! So happy to have found this recipe and thank you for sharing, plus the comments below are good to know too.
