Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

Can you guess the secret ingredient in this new recipe for the best-ever chocolate chip cookies? Here are a few hints:

1. It’s a favorite fridge item for carb-lovers.
2. It works wonders in cheesecake.
3. It’s not sour cream … or applesauce … or cream of tartar.

Still stumped?

The secret ingredient in my chocolate chip cookies is none other than … cream cheese! The tangy spread has become my latest baking obsession ever since I experimented with subbing a bit of it for butter in a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe. The result is the softest cookie that pairs a perfectly chewy center with slightly crispy edges.

Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ready to up your chocolate chip cookie game? Here are a few tips to guide you on on your path to cookie perfection:

  • DO use brown sugar in addition to granulated sugar. A combination of the two sugars results in chewier cookies, while cookies made with only white sugar will be much crispier.
  • DON’T use low-fat cream cheese. These are cookies, not green juice.
  • DO chill the dough before scooping and baking it. The refrigeration period, which is anywhere from 2 to 72 hours, gives the ingredients a chance to bind. A cohesive dough is a better dough, and one that guarantees the cookies won’t spread too much while baking. Put simply: The longer you refrigerate the dough, the better the cookies will taste.
  • DON’T over-bake the cookies. For perfect cookies with crispy edges and soft, chewy centers, remove them from the oven 2 minutes before they’re fully baked, as they’ll continue cooking and crisp up slightly as they cool.
  • DO tell yourself that you’re “only going to eat one cookie” … and then eat three.

Drooling yet? Grab the cream cheese, bypass the bagels and get baking with my new go-to recipe for soft and chewy Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: About 3 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 2 hours (includes chilling)

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temp
1/4 cup cream cheese, at room temp
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, cream cheese, sugar, light brown sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes, scraping down the sides as needed. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour mixture, beating to combine, then stir in the chocolate chips.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for a minimum of 2 hours and up to 3 days.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpats.

Drop 2- to 3-tablespoon mounds of dough onto the baking sheets, spacing the mounds at least 2 inches apart.

Bake the cookies for 9 to 11 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for 2 minutes then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Kelly's Notes:
Measure 1/4 cup cream cheese by spooning/scraping it into a dry measuring cup and leveling it off.

    Gorgeous, Kelly! I made Cream Cheese Choc Chip Cookies a few months ago and loved loved loved the results and what it did for them. Like you, I swapped it for some of the butter and would like to play around more and see how far I can take it. Your cookies are beautiful!

    Freaaaaaking out right now. And I guessed the secret ingredient! AND, I also read that Famous Amos would refrigerate his dough twice before baking! So, reading your instructions makes me a believer. And I love cream cheese. And I’m going to whip these up, like, now.

    not only am I love the idea of cream cheese in cookies, but I’m thinking it might be worth experimenting with Mascarpone? I am a serious Mascarpone advocate and think it could totally rock this recipe!!! If I try it I’ll let ya know girrrl :)

      Hi Kat! If you store them in an air-tight container at room temp, they should last about a week … if you don’t eat them all before then :)

    Hi! I reaaaally want to try this cookies, but i don’t understand.. how much flour do you need for this recipe? What is that 2 1/4 cups of flour- isn’t it just the same as 1/2 cup or does it mean something else?
    Hf :)

    Hello Kelly; this is my first visit to your site. I shall be returning regularly! For the wonderful sounding cookies, is Philadelphia cheese okay? Perhaps Philadelphia Light?

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — September 6th, 2013 @ 5:56 am

      Welcome, Bonnie! Philadelphia cream cheese will work great but definitely use the regular and not the light/low-fat version, as it’ll throw off the consistency of the dough. Enjoy!

    Refrigerate for up to 72 hours I will have to put a lock on the door or the dough will be completely gone before ever getting to the oven. Can’t wait to try this TODAY.

    For Urska – It is not 2 quarter cups of flour (as you interpreted that would be 1/2 cup). It is 2 cups + another 1/4 cup.

  50. #

    Mary — September 6, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    Urska– it’s two cups PLUS a quarter cup. Not two quarter cups (which would be together one half cup).

    Aly — September 7, 2013 at 3:32 am

    For Urska, I think the answer you’re looking for is 2 whole cups plus 1/4 cup of flour.

    I have always made cookies and froze them before I bake them. That way I can bake what we use and they stay fresh. My question is can the chocolate chip cookie with cream cheese be frozen?? I scoop them put them in the freezer on the sheets then put in bags, seal, write the date and kind of cookie

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — September 12th, 2013 @ 10:10 pm

      Hi Charlyene! I have made this dough and frozen it in logs before, then sliced and baked the cookies. So I think your technique will work!

    I made these last week for a treat at work. After tasting them I selfishly wished I would have left them at home for me! Sooooo good!!!! Everyone at work loved them….even the ones who didn’t like cream cheese! Don’t let that scare you away from making them….you can’t taste it in there! I’m making more tonight. Going to take a dozen to a friend and her kids to try; then I’m going to make a few and scoop out the rest of the dough and flash freeze them, then put them in a ziploc to pull out when the cookie need strikes! With these, I’m thinking it will strike a LOT! :)

    We used to have a place in town where you could buy premade cookie dough, pies, bread, etc….anything that was dough-based. The cookies were scooped out and frozen individually, then bagged in up in a dozen or so to buy. It was wonderful being able to pull out only 2 or 3 and have a warm cookie whenever I wanted! Unfortunately, they closed. They had a DIVINE cookie that was a chocolate cookie and a cheesecake ball center (almost completely surrounded by the chocolate cookie)….soft and fudgy. I wonder if you’d try something like that for all of us readers and let us know how to do it? :)

    Olivia — September 18, 2013 at 4:19 am

    I’ve put the dough in the fridge, but even after an hour, it still seems extremely un-doughy, like more runny than i’ve ever seen cookie dough before. Is that okay?

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — October 15th, 2013 @ 3:32 pm

      Hi Olivia! It’s important to only blend the dough until the flour is just incorporated, as over-blending it can cause it to be too loose. Hope this helps!

    Paige — September 19, 2013 at 1:32 am

    A little past midnight and I could not sleep. I’m visiting my dad tomorrow and he loves when I bake for him. So I decided to google some recipes and stumbled across this one. I was pretty angry when I found out I didn’t have any brown sugar. Well, I wasn’t going to give up that easy. I googled a substitute for brown sugar and found molasses. Well, if you don’t have brown sugar are you really going to have molasses? I was determined to make some cookies, though. So, again…with the help of google I used a honey/maple syrup mixture mixed with regular sugar. I was a little hesitant to taste the dough but I was pleasantly surprised! DELISH! But, I was still somewhat worried about how everything was going to bake. So, I didn’t wait for them to chill. I tried out just two cookies. They are literally the softest most delicious chocolate chip cookies I have EVER made. :) Thanks for the recipe!!

    So I made these today on a whim. The pictures had me sold. I ended up having to use about 1/4 cup whole wheat white flour because I ran our of AP flour as well as only freezing them for 1/2 an hour rather refrigerating them but they STILL turned out great! Looks exactly like the picture! Chewy at 10 minutes (I probably could have baked them a little longer but I had to leave) but still very yummy- great for Pizzokies. I also sprinkled a bit of salt on them. I still have some dough left (after making a dozen) that I’m excited to make! Great recipe!

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — October 15th, 2013 @ 3:35 pm

    Can I add a note? In order to get a perfect measurement for any fat just get a liquid measuring cup and place water to measure the volume.
    So for instance you have 1/4 cup cream cheese well you would put 1/4 cup of water in a measuring cup then add the fat. Once the water level hits 1/2 cup then you have the exact amount of fat you need for your recipe. This recipe will not fall on an minor error but others can and do.

    Hello! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. I made two batches of these. One batch yesterday and another this morning.the first time, the batch of cookies came out yummy, but it wasn’t chewy as I hoped it to be. So I decided try again, and the second batch came out fairly similar. It had a cake like consistency but you can still feel that is a cookie. Please guide me towards the light. Also, how did you get such perfect shape? I have refrigerated mine. It didn’t spreads when baking. As a matter of fact, the top part of the cookie will be sorta raw while the bottom in burning up. How can I tell what two minutes before the baking time will look like. One last question, if I may, I use an ice cream scoop as well, but your shapes are just amazing! Did you pressed the batter down a little after releasing it from the scoop.

    Hello! I really wanna try using this recipe for a double chocolate chip cookie. How much cocoa powder can I add to this recipe ? Thank you.

    I made these cookies last night and did not look like the cookies in the picture- they were soft on the inside and outside- followed directions exactly – what happened?

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — October 8th, 2013 @ 3:09 pm

      Hi Angela! These are soft chocolate chip cookies, so they definitely should have that texture on both the inside and outside. If you want them crisper, you can bake them slightly longer, and they’ll be even more chewy. Hope that helps!

    I just helped my daughter make this exact recipe for her friend, it’s her Birthday party tonight and I think she will love these cookies : D First batch was our learning curve, we also made one large cookie for her friend with what was left after doing about 3 cookies sheets worth of well spaced cookies, turned out tastey looking

    Dumb question maybe, but if I refrigerate do I scoop them right from fridge to oven or let them come to room temp?

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — October 19th, 2013 @ 2:20 pm

      Not a dumb question at all! You can scoop them right from the fridge onto the baking sheet and then bake them. Enjoy :)

    My cookies ended up amazing and the pictures are incredible! I just have to say for the mounds of cookies did you mean 2-3 teaspoons? When i did the first 6 with tablespoons they were MASSIVE so I did some with teaspoons and they looked more accurately like the picture – just curious

    Hi Kelly! Thanks for the recipe! I refrigerated the dough for 72 hours, I had a problem with the cookies though,, they were brown from the sides and I got them out of the oven, but the center was too soft almost uncooked

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — November 8th, 2013 @ 7:56 am

      Hi Wadha! Oven temperatures (as well as baking sheets) can cause great variances in how quickly doughs bake. Do you have an oven thermometer to ensure your oven isn’t running hot? And did you use parchment paper or a Silpat on your baking sheet?

    Daisy — November 8, 2013 at 8:26 am

    If I wanted to make these cookies with no egg, what can I use as a substitution?

    I was wondering if I could use flax seed or unsweetened apple sauce but not sure of how that would effect the texture of the cookie

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — November 8th, 2013 @ 8:54 am

      Hi Daisy – I have never tried using an egg substitute of unsweetened apple sauce, so unfortunately I can’t say with certainty how they’d turn out.

But I’ve got to admit, this is one of my favorite recipes by FAR. The dough almost didn’t make it to the fridge.. Definitely a keeper for sure.

    Hello this was a really great recipe! The only thing I would suggest is not recommending the use of parchment paper.

These cookies are really yummy fyi but my cookies don’t look like the picture, they actually look better lol :)

    Thanks so much for the recipe. This is officially my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe!

    I made these today and only chilled them for 2 hrs. I also used sea salt instead of regular salt and they turned out fantastic! This is the first batch of cc cookies I have ever gotten to come out. And I have been trying for years. I think the sea salt added another layer of taste that took it over the top.

    Thank you for sharing such a great recipe!!

    Baking cc cookies is usually my specialty. Apparently, not today. Just tried this recipe, and it tasted funny. I realized that I put 1/2 cup of MSG instead of sugar into my batch. Ewwww….

    Luckily, I hadn’t baked them yet. Just made my 2nd batch. They are in the frig now. Can’t wait to bake them tonight.

    John — December 7, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    Well – it’s just my own preference – but I think the temperature is about 20 degrees too high, and there should be about 1/4 to 1/2 cup more brown sugar. But – it might be my impatience – they may taste better after cooling.

    If you need 4 oz. of cream cheese, shortening ect…. fill a one cup measuring cup with 4 oz. water then 4 oz. of cream cheese will bring it to 1 cup. Dump out the water and you are left with the cream cheese, using a spatula take out the cream cheese.

    I was looking for a CC recipe because the one my family had settled on (after many tries) was one that included a package of vanilla pudding. In trying to get away from the chemicals I went searching again to find the “secret ingredient” was cream cheese which sounded interesting. Voila. New recipe found. Got thumbs up with some changes (i.e. DD requested “more vanilla”, etc) but the taste and texture worked for everyone. YAYYY. And for anyone who also is someone who reads the recipe and goes…”ugh, no, I can’t refrigerate these for any length of time because I need them NOW.” I made them without refrigerating them and they were fine. I don’t doubt that they taste better made and then refrigerated, but if you can’t..it is ok. :-) I don’t know why this never dawned on me but I run my dishwasher at night and I thought…woah..great idea, make the dough the night before, throw everything in the dishwasher…then bake the next morning. :-) Thanks for this recipe! How I “lucked” out to fund a replacement for my “always” recipe for CC first shot I don’t know but I am thrilled :-). Merry Christmas and God Bless us Everyone :-)!

    I love the cream cheese in this recipe. Can I use the cream cheese in other
    recipes that call for one cup of butter and instead use 3/4 cup butter and
    1/4 cup cream cheese?

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — January 17th, 2014 @ 1:39 am

      Thanks for your comment, Shirley! Unfortunately cream cheese isn’t always an easy ingredient to substitute, as it depends entirely on the type of recipe. It could work in some other baked goods (to replace a portion of the butter), but it depends on the other ingredients.

    Thanks for the recipe. I just whipped up a batch and have them in the fridge for overnight. The only change I made is the chocolate chips, I had to substitute with mini peanut butter cups ( I did not have plain chocolate chips). I have a questions though, since cream cheese is an item you usually keep in the fridge would you have to refrigerate the cookies after they are baked? Or can you leave them out on the counter?

    I loved the idea of putting cream cheese in the choc. chip cooks. I made them exactly how the recipe said, but I got cake like cookies. The taste was amazing!! But they were not cookie like, gooey or chewy. I was disappointed. I read on the internet cake like cookies could be from too much flour so maybe I’ll try less next time. THanks for the awesome post though.

    Made the dough yesterday, baked half today. Husband says, “Hope you’re talking these to work cuz you know I’m not a big chocolate lover.” So I froze half the recipe to bake at a later date. By the end of the evening he said, “I think you better make more for work.” He ate at least eight. They are magnificent. Rounded teaspoons were the perfect size. Baking time remained the same. Mille gracie!

    I made these cookies over the weekend while preparing a meal and dessert for a sick friend. I ALWAYS read the directions fully before diving into a recipe, but I didn’t this time due to being in hurry-up mode. I did not have time to refrigerate the dough at all. I was pretty bummed because I had high hopes for these and felt like I had just messed it all up. However, the cookies were still amazing!! I don’t consider myself a great cookie maker and I’ve only really begun to enjoy baking over the past couple of years. I always seem to over bake them or they are flat, etc. These were perfect and my husband and girls went crazy over them (we had to sample at least a dozen for ourselves). This will be my new go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe for sure. I cannot wait to see how they turn out when I actually follow the directions correctly! :)

    I made the batter on Sunday and waited until Thursday to bake the cookies. Let me just say, BEST COOKIES I’VE MADE THUS FAR. This is a superb recipe. And yes, I ate three cookies immediately after baking them (:

    These cookies look so yummy! They sound like the perfect recipe to try! Our family loves soft, chewy cookies, and we tend to make them at least once a week. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

    I’m all about experimenting with my cookie recipes. Trouble is I never write down what I’ve changed or adjusted. The cream cheese substitution is DEFINITELY on my must try list. Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi there, Looks like a fantastic recipe. Can’t wait to try it. Just wondering though cookies start off warm and chewy normally when left over night they harden. Almost like store brought cookies which I don’t really like. Is this the same case with these cookies?
    MAny thanks.

      Hi Zahra! The cookies should stay soft and chewy, but remember to keep them in an airtight container!

    I make a white cookie at Christmas time with the cream cheese in it, prefer them to regular sugar cookies. Have made these several times, the cookie dough is unbelievable! Some of them made it to the oven, didn’t turn out like your pic though, mine were more taller and puffy, will try to flatten them before baking. I have made these just to eat the cookie dough, no lie! Thank you for this recipe!

    Delicious. Perfect texture of cookie with an amazing taste. Although, I spoiled my taste buds with the raw dough. Thank-you so much! This recipe is on another website as well, so you know it’s extra-effective.

    I accidentally used half milk chocolate and half dark chocolate chips. Will this cause any problems?

      Nope, not at all :)

    Hi Kelly

    You say to underbake the cookies, so do I bake them for 7-9 minutes instead of the time frame you give of 9-11 minutes.

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — April 11th, 2014 @ 1:23 pm

      Hi Jackie – Ovens vary greatly by temperature, so I can’t give you an exact time, but you can start checking the cookies around the 7- to 9-minute mark and bake until they’re just slightly underdone. Enjoy!

    These cookies are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! I can taste the cream cheese but that does nothing to discount the deliciousness of these cookies. Next time I will increase the brown sugar and vanilla but I have found the only recipe for chocolate chip cookies I will ever use again. The texture is incredible and I had no problem with the dough coming together. I ate 5 last night before I could stop myself. Thanks Kelly!

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — April 13th, 2014 @ 5:21 pm

      Yes! This is what I like to hear :) So glad you love them!

    Hello from Australia, they were the best cookies i have ever made, and probably ever tasted, and i dont say that lightly as my father was a pastry chef with 50 in the game, also being a lover of raspberries i subed have the chocolate chips for raspberry m&m’s and they were amazing also.
    Thank you so much, can’t wait to try more of your recipes :)

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — April 13th, 2014 @ 6:04 pm

      So thrilled you enjoyed the recipe, Jon! Love the raspberry M&M substitution :)
