Chocolate Chip Cookies

Leave a comment

My friend makes these all the time and they are always a hit. I am not sure where she got the recipe from but she always doubled the recipe (which I did below). They are officially called “Softbatch Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies.” These weren’t in the plans to make until my roommate and I ventured to our local liquor store and we know the guys pretty well there since we are there so often! But we told them how we were making cookies and they not so subtly hinted that they like chocolate chip cookies. Well after that, how could we not make them!


  • cookies12 sticks unsalted butter
  • ½ cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 ½ cup AP flour
  • 4 tsp arrowroot
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 bag choc chips or chunks
  • 1 bag M&Ms (I used red and green ones :))

In a standard mixer with the paddle attachment,  combine the butter and cream cheese. Mix until well incorporated. Add the sugars, eggs, vanilla and beat on medium-high until fluffy (about 5 minutes). Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the flour, arrowroot, baking soda, and salt. Mix for about a minute then add the chocolate chips and M&Ms and mix until just combined. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 35oF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpats. Scoop 2 inch dough balls and space evenly. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until tops are slightly browned. Place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
