Bready or Not: Philly Chippers

Each Wednesday I share a recipe. Feel free to print it out or pin on Pinterest. Recipes are meant to be shared, just like the good food they inspire.

I love experimenting and trying out cookie recipes, but in recent years this particular recipe has become one of my stand-bys. It's rather odd at first glance: a chocolate chip cookie recipe that includes a block of cream cheese. But let me tell you, that cream cheese is some awesome stuff. It embodies these cookies with a soft, doughy texture and just the slightest bit of creamy flavor. They tend not to spread a lot: these cookies are thick, moist, and I bet they'll become one of your stand-by recipes, too.

Philly Chippers

1 cup butter (two cubes), softened
1 8oz pkg cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream together the butter, cream cheese, and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Sift dry ingredients together and slowly incorporate them with the wet ingredients. Add chocolate chips (and nuts, if included).

Use a scoop or tablespoon to place rounds of dough on the cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Leave them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before moving to a rack to cool.
