Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies — These soft batch cookies are made with a combination of butter and cream cheese, which makes them extra rich and delicious! I like to make mine using a combination of chocolate chips and chunks, and you can even use M&M's in these! 

I’ve been wanting to bake cream cheese into cookies for ages. I finally did. And I’m in love with the results.

In my cookbook, I have a recipe for Carrot Cake Cookies with cream cheese baked in, but I’ve never tried it with chocolate chip cookies or as a way to substitute for butter until now. 

I adapted my favorite Chocolate Chip and Chunk Cookies recipe and replaced some of the butter with cream cheese and am in love with the results.

My favorite recipe calls for 3/4 cup of butter, and for these soft batch chocolate chip cookies I used a combination of 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup cream cheese. You wouldn’t think that just a simple quarter-cup swap of butter for cream cheese would effect results that much, but it did

These chocolate chip cream cheese cookies are so soft, moist, and with a richness to the dough like no other cookies I’ve tried.

Cornstarch is my secret weapon for creating super soft cookies. The reason pudding cookies turn out so soft is because ‘modified food starch,’ or cornstarch, is one of the first ingredients in pudding mix. Same principle here, minus using actual pudding mix.

After trying these soft batch chocolate chip cream cheese cookies and not being able to keep my hands off of them, it’s made me wonder what’ll happen if I replace some of the butter with cream cheese in some of my other favorite cookie recipes. I can’t wait to start taste-testing and make up for lost time!

What Does Cream Cheese Do for Cookies? 

It makes them super soft and moist! In this particular recipe, the dough seems more buttery — which is ironic since there’s actually less butter used, not more. 

I can’t taste the cream cheese, but it adds depth, density, and richness that my regular chocolate chip cookies don’t have.

Use cream cheese in a block or the spreadable kind. Smoosh it into a one-quarter cup measure and cream it with the butter and sugars. I used a combination of 2 1/4 cups of chocolate chips and chunks to ensure plenty of chocolate in every bite. And then some.

The cream cheese cookies are super soft without being cakey, and remind me of soft batch cookies. The edges are slightly chewy, and the thick interiors are soft, tender, and moist.

Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients 

If you’ve never made chocolate chip cookies with cream cheese before, you’re in for a treat! You’ll need just a handful of pantry staples:

  • Unsalted butter
  • Cream cheese
  • Light brown sugar
  • Granulated sugar
  • Egg 
  • Vanilla extract
  • All-purpose flour
  • Cornstarch 
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to Make Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

The steps for this chocolate chip cookie recipe with cream cheese couldn’t be simpler! 

  1. Cream together the cream cheese, butter, sugars, and vanilla extract. Whip the mixture on medium-high speed until it’s light and fluffy. Don’t just mix it all together, it must be light and fluffy before moving onto the next step!
  2. Add in the dry ingredients and scrape down the sides of the bowl to make sure everything gets incorporated.
  3. Scoop the cookie dough into large balls and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before baking.
  4. Bake the cookies for no more than 10 minutes, then let cool for 5 minutes on the baking tray before transferring to a wire rack.

Tip: DO NOT overbake the cookies. They’ll continue cooking on the inside as they come to room temperature, and you definitely don’t want them to become too firm. Remember: you’re making soft batch cookies here!

Can I Use a Cornstarch Substitute? 

Honestly, I’m not sure if a cornstarch substitute would work in this recipe. To make these cream cheese chocolate chip cookies soft batch-style, the cornstarch is needed.

Technically, you can omit the cornstarch, but your cookies won’t turn out as soft.

Can the Cookies Be Made with Low-Fat Cream Cheese? 

No, don’t use light, fat-free, or a whipped cream cheese because your dough will become runny. I tried the recipe with some light cream cheese I had on hand, and the cookies baked thinner and spread.

I made these as classic chocolate chip cream cheese cookies, but I bet you could add extra mix-ins if desired. Chopped nuts, M&M’s, or your favorite chopped up candy bar would all be good additions.

Just be sure to add no more than 2 1/4 cups mix-ins total. 

Yes, if you want to make soft batch chocolate chip cookies with cream cheese you MUST chill the dough first.

Make sure to chill your dough for at least two hours before you bake to ensure your cookies bake thick and puffy. Warm, limp dough bakes into limpy and wimpy cookies.

I want my cookies to be thick, with puffy centers that are overflowing with chocolate.

Can I Chill the Dough and Then Roll it Into Balls? 

I wouldn’t recommend it. The dough firms up a lot in the fridge and becomes crumbly, which makes it tough to roll after being chilled. You really need to form the cookie dough balls and then chill them for best results. 

Yes, this chocolate chip cream cheese cookie dough freezes incredibly well. Just roll the dough into balls as if you were going to bake them, but store them in the freezer instead.

You don’t have to thaw the dough before baking it, just bake it straight from frozen (note that you may need to bake these cream cheese cookies 1 to 2 minutes longer if baking from frozen).

Tips for Making Chocolate Chip Cookies with Cream Cheese

Cookie scoop: I used a 2-inch cookie scoop to make my cookies because I like them really big. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, use a large spoon and your hands. Just try to make your cookies all the same size so they bake evenly! 

Cookie cake: I’ve never tried this myself, but a few readers have asked if they could transform the cookie dough into a cookie cake. My gut says most likely! Use this chocolate chip cookie pie recipe as a reference for bake times. 

Make ahead: As I mentioned already, the cookie dough freezes incredibly well. If you plan on making the cookies ahead of time to freeze for later, I recommend freezing the dough rather than the baked cookies.

But that’s just my personal preference as I prefer enjoying freshly baked cookies rather than thawed and reheated ones!

Softbatch Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients  

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup cream cheese, softened*
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, optional and to taste
  • 2 ¼ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks**

Instructions 

  • To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter, cream cheese (measure it by smooshing it into a 1/4-cup measure), sugars, egg, vanilla, and beat on medium-high speed until well-creamed, light and fluffy, about 5 minutes (or use an electric hand mixer and beat for at least 7 minutes).
  • Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, optional salt, and mix until just combined, about 1 minute.
  • Add chocolate chips and chunks, and beat momentarily to incorporate, or fold in by hand.
  • Using a medium 2-inch cookie scoop, form heaping mounds (I made 28). Place mounds on a large plate, flatten mounds slightly with your palm, cover with plasticwrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to 5 days, before baking. Do not bake with warm dough because cookies will spread and bake thinner and flatter.
  • Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat Non-Stick Baking Mat or spray with cooking spray and place mounds on baking sheet, spaced at least 2 inches apart (I bake 8 cookies per sheet).
  • Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or until edges have set and tops are just beginning to set, even if slightly undercooked, pale and glossy in the center. Do not bake longer than 10 minutes as cookies will firm up as they cool.
  • Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing and transferring to a rack to finish cooling.***
  • Cookies will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Alternatively, unbaked cookie dough can be stored airtight in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, so consider baking only as many cookies as desired and save the remaining dough to be baked in the future when desired.

Notes

*Use cream cheese in a block or spreadable, don’t use fat-free, light or whipped.
**I used 1 cup chips and 1 1/4 cups chunks.
***The cookies shown in the photos were baked with dough that had been chilled overnight, allowed to come to room temp for 15 minutes, and were baked for 8 minutes, with trays rotated at the 4-minute mark. They have chewy edges with soft, pillowy centers.

    Holy moly!! Where has this recipe been my entire life?! This will 100% be the only chocolate chip recipe I’ll be making from now on. I followed your directions (refrigerated the dough overnight) and they seriously look exactly like the cookies in your picture! 🤯
    You have not tasted the way chocolate chip cookies should taste until you’ve made this recipe. Fair warning: Do not make these if you’re on a diet. No amount of self-control will keep you from eating more than just one. #obsessed

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review Julianne and I love hearing that this is your go-to recipe from now on! I truly am so happy that you love love these cookies and your enthusiasm for the recipe is awesome! I love this: You have not tasted the way chocolate chip cookies should taste until you’ve made this recipe. !!

    Love these! I still find it too sweet though, so next time I will use less regular sugar. But, overall, VERY good!!! You will not be disappointed with this recipe!!

    1. You could also switch to a darker chocolate that’s less sweet rather than altering the dough base. I am glad they turned out very well overall for you!

    OMG!!! The answer to the problem I’ve struggled with FOR YEARS!!! I’ve always thought chocolate chip cookie recipes (and I’ve tried MANY) where just too sweet. So, I’ve tried everything from adjusting the amount each of the sugars, to the amount of flour, to the amount of salt. But it never quite seemed to do the trick. These were perfect in every way – perfectly sweet, soft, chewy, smooth, WHO KNEW?!?!?! Cornstarch and cream cheese!!!! I’ll definitely be trying your other cookie recipes made with the same adjustments!! And thank you!!!

    1. No I don’t refrigerate them. After it’s been baked, and in the small overall quantity that it is, they are fine at room temp on the counter for me.

    These are hands down the best cookies ever. I was wondering if it matters if I measured everything by weight like in grams. Has anyone tried this and how did it turn out?Some chefs recommend baking by weight so I was curious if these amazing cookies could possibly be elevated by this method.

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and I’m so glad these are the best cookies ever for you!

      Contrary to some food bloggers, I don’t tend to bake by weight because it’s just not the way I learned to bake and use cups and teaspoons. I am sure you could convert the recipe to grams. But if it’s working great for you now, I would just continue making it like you are!

  19. Hi, I am making these for the first time and the batter when completey mixed seems more like cake batter than cookie batter. Is this normal?
    Thank you!

    1. No that’s not typical. It’s definitely a typical cookie batter in the sense that it’s a pretty thick and not thin like cake batter.

      Is there any chance you mismeasured your flour?

  20. cant wait to try these! just wondering why is the egg mixed in with everything else first? usually i see cookie recipes mix butter and sugar first then add the egg after.

    1. Because in this recipe, it really doesn’t matter. You can cream the butter and sugar first if you want, then add the egg. Or save a step and do it as I wrote it. Either is fine.

    I made the cream cheese chocolate chip cookies. They were so easy and delicious.
    I left out the 2 teaspoons of corn starch and instead added 2 teaspoons of flour. They were perfect! I don’t like corn starch in my cookies because to me they don’t help keep the cookies soft, instead it dries them out.

    I made these cookies with light cream cheese and they were divine! So soft and fluffy in the center! My only comment is that I would add more sugar next time. I don’t like thigs overly swee so I used scant measurements when doling out the sugar, next time I will try heaping measurements of sugar!
    A must try!

  59. These are delicious! I’m a little confused about the cookie scoop though- I have a 2 inch scoop like the instructions state but I’m only able to make 21 (compared to 28) – and that’s knocking dough off each scoop?

    1. Cookie scoops are one of the most mystifying products in terms of how they are labeled whether it’s 1 tablespoon, medium, 1 inch, etc. Every manufacturer seems to have slightly different standards of measure and I have never found it easy to compare. Your scope was just probably very slightly bigger than mine. I would not worry about it at all. You might need to bake your cookies an extra minute than I baked mine.

    These came out very delicious. Just commenting to possibly help someone else out who is thinking of making them larger than the recommended size. I made 24 total, so I had to personally bake them for 20 minutes before they didn’t look so pale anymore. I also had to squish them down half way because I originally made them into balls & they weren’t spreading.  Not sure if it was the size of them or not but I want to say that I read after the fact, that others were having the same issue. I’m just not sure if they made them smaller than mine or not. Either way, I think next time I will already mold them into cookie shapes instead as someone else suggested. They were also a little too soft even after letting sit & cool for like 30-45 min. Again, probably encountering these issues for making them a bit too large. Totally my fault! However, I let them sit out overnight & the next morning they were perfect. They were nice and gooey but not falling apart like the night before. I also wanted to mention that I know it comes down to preference, but keep in mind I absolutely love chocolate, however, these were a tiny bit too chocolatey for me. So I may cut back on the chocolate just a bit next time. I’m thinking maybe just a 12 oz package of the semi sweet chocolate chips (1 1/2 cups) might do it. I’m just mentioning this so that if all you have on hand is one package I think that’s more than enough and wouldn’t feel the need to go out to buy more. Anyways, I’m very grateful for the recipe, the family and I enjoyed it very much & I will be looking for more of Averie’s recipes.

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and discussion on what you did. It may help others. In general, cookies that are resistant to spreading mean the dough has been a bit over-floured and is on the stiff side hence they won’t spread. Something to keep in mind when you are measuring flour is to maybe use a smidge less next time or a lighter hand. Glad you have been enjoying my recipes!

  76. 2 stars
    Followed directions exactly and they just didn’t work out for me. They stayed in dough balls and even though I added an extra minute to the cooking time after the first batch, they were raw inside and crispy outside. Flavor was off for me I think bc I’m used to not using corn starch or cream cheese in my choc chip cookies. Glad I tried something new, but back to the drawing board.

    This is my husband’s favorite cookie – he even chose them over all the ones his mother makes (which is the first time I’ve ever made something yummier than her’s!) Every time I make this recipe (which has to be more than 20 times now) they get devoured first – even at parties when the desserts are in large quantities. People LOVE these.

    These are for sure the best chocolate chip cookies ever! They are so soft. I just stick the entire bowl of cookie dough in the freezer for about 45 min, then roll it into tall balls onto the cookie pan and bake. They come out thick, fluffy and so soft! I personally don’t like having to stick the entire pan in the fridge or freezer because that means I would have to re-arrange everything already in there. I find that letting it chill in the bowl (and in the freezer if you’re not wanting to wait 2 hours) works just as well! Thanks for this recipe.

    made these for 4th of July ….with my scoop I got 23 cookies. I made the dough two day in advance, put the cookie balls on a baking sheet and refrigerated for 2 days. When ready to bake , spaced the cookie balls on another cookie sheet and let sit the cookies sit 15 minutes and baked 18 minutes ( mine were slightly larger because of the size of my scoop. As the first batch were cooking, I set up the next cookie sheet and let them sit out while my first batch was cooking…worked like a charm. Everyone loved them. This is the new favorite in our family.

  90. Hi Averie- I love all your recipes! We live in a high-altitude area (4600 ft) here in Utah so how should I alter the recipe to account for this? Every cookie I’ve ever made has gone flat due to the altitude- may be more flour?

    1. I would check the King Arthur flour website regarding high altitude baking. I know they have good resources and tutorials and have more experience with it than I do since I live at sea level.

    I was disappointed with this recipe. I like my cookies more chewy but it was a bit too cakey for me. I followed the recipe and did not bake it for more than 10 mins. If you like your cookies more crispy/brown on the outside but soft in the inside… I don’t think this is the recipe to try. I think the pale appearance also made it look unappetizing for me.

    OH MY GOODNESS!!! Did exactly what the recipe said left in the refrigerator for 1.5 hours and left out for a little before baking ( when i say a little I mean while I waiting for the oven to pre-heat) and these are absolutely amazing!! If you following the exact recipe you make little cookies balls before baking and you will end up with 90 plus cookies. It takes a little time but so worth every minute of prepping, to making to cleaning and everything else in between to get these amazing cookies. Definitely better than any store bought cookie dough. If I can give it 5 more stars i would! Absolutely amazing!! 😁😄

    This was my second time making these cookies. They are BY FAR the best chocolate chip cookies – and possibly THE BEST cookies – that I’ve ever made, and I’ve made tons! These beauties are soft and chewy, and stay that way for several days. I only used 2 cups of choco chips, but it was plenty! A rare occasion when lots of chocolate chips is not overwhelming. Trust that 8 minutes is enough for baking even though it may not seem like it at the time!

    1. I would just halve them down the middle if that’s what you want to do. Mix the egg, then use half.

      Or, just make the full batch, freeze half the dough balls, and bake them off at a future date.

  108. Hi.
    Recipe looks delicious. I only have almond flour and coconut flour. Will either of those work?
    Thanks!

    1. Unfortunately, no. For various reasons, including gluten (lack of) as well as how they absorb moisture (coconut flour is like a sponge), they won’t work here. Sorry.

  109. Hello,
    I made these cookies and they are delicious and followed the recipe exactly as directed. The dough was refrigerated over night. However, the cookies flat and thin and not chunky. Would you know why this would be the case? Thank you for your time!

    1. First read this post, it has lots of tips and tricks for cookie baking https://www.averiecooks.com/the-best-soft-and-chewy-chocolate-chip-cookies/

      Second, I am thinking that if they fell flat and thin there was either not enough flour (if the dough was overly sticky/moist) that would cause them to spread. Or possibly baking soda not as fresh as possible and didn’t rise well. Or possibly the cream cheese you used wasn’t full-fat, original brick-style cream cheese. If the second two options can be ruled out, then I go back to flour. I would add an additional 1/4 cup, see how the dough looks, if it’s overly sticky, add a smidge more. It’s an eyeball thing based on how the dough looks since climates, humidity, ingredients, vary.

      If you remake, LMK how it goes.

    Amazing cookies. Soft and chewy… and they don’t go hard. Just perfect. As always, thanks for another gem of a recipe!

  111. I cannot wait to try these! They look amazing! Can I substitute the egg, as I don’t have any on hand? With quarantine and all, it’s tough getting out to the shops.

  112. I have not made these cream cheese chocolate chip cookies yet but I am anxious to try them. My question is, since they are baked with cream cheese, do they have to be stored in the refrigerator after baking?

    1. No. Same principle as with butter. We bake with it but later on don’t need to store the baked goods in the fridge.

  113. 1 star
    I did not like this cookie recipe, less butter makes them more powdery and less cookie-like.
    Sure, they are “soft”, but the minute you bite into them, the cookie falla apart to a powdery mix. I cooked the first batch cold, pulled the uncooked cookies right out of the fridge and cooked them for 10 minutes. The second time i let the uncooked cookies warm up to room temperature and then baked them for 10 minutes, and the results were the same. Dry, powdery cookies.

    I will make again, but double the cream cheese. I doubled the recipe but only used 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips (my preference) and added a cup of walnuts.
    I have a convection oven so i turned heat to 340 and cooked 8 minutes. I yielded 46 cookies. Yum!

    The consistency of the dough was interesting, but it tasted bland, so as I thought, the cookies were also bland. I tried a few w/o refrigeration and they did not spread and regardless of refrigeration, they baked up the same w/a Cake-like consistency. Had a somewhat crackled appearance, but tops looked toasted at 9 minutes, rather than an all over golden appearance. I will not bake these again. I see you have many good reviews, but just not my taste.

  127. Hi not used corn starch before, is it the same as corn flour? I’m in the U.K. so wondering if it’s the same just a different name? Possibly. Thanks

      1. Yes it is the same! In the UK, corn flour is the same as corn starch. Both are white powders primarily used for thickening. Yellow corn flour is a different product.

      2. Thanks for commenting. In the US, corn flour and corn starch are not the same but in the UK things are obviously different.

      3. Was going to try just based on reviews from Pinterest main page. Read reviews and didn’t like the tone of your reply to this question about the corn starch. There was no need to comment back with anything other than a thank you when someone was just trying to help. Or even gracefully noting you’d been corrected and maybe learned something. Then I decided to look at the recipe. It’s old news and nothing special.

      4. Honestly I get probably 200 recipe related questions on a daily basis. I answer them as quickly and to the point as possible. If my tone to you doesn’t come off to your liking, so be it. There are tons of recipes out there to try. Yes this recipe is old news. I originally made it in 2011 or 2012.

    My second batch is in the oven right now. They came out perfect & 😋 delicious. I used cookie butter cream cheese spread and 3/4 semi sweet & 3/4 milk chocolate chips. The last batch I also added some coconut because I seemed to have a lot of batter left. I also have some chocolate hazelnut cream cheese spread I wondering how that would taste? Maybe put less chocolate chips & add some nuts, The possibilities are endless!!! Thank you for the recipe!

      And yes just scale back on some choc chips to make room for some nuts is my suggestion .

  133. Hello! How do you measure your flour pls? Spoon and level or do you dip the measuring cup and sweep and level? Would like to bake them with the correct flour measurement :)

    1. I dip the measuring cup and sweep and level but also use a light hand. Overall though, my recipes are not written to the point you need to be perfect down to the gram. They are not that fussy.

      Note that in the summer and more humid times of the year, you may need to use a bit more flour to compensate for the extra moisture in the air.

    Been making these for years now. I’ve tried them with the Snickers morsels and most recently with bacon crumbled up in them. They’re always a hit. My family gets excited when I make them. I always forget the chill step and then overcook the first batch for some reason. One of these days I want to make a bunch and freeze them so I’ll always have some on hand to bake. I always direct people to your page when they ask for the recipe. Thanks! :)

I always forget the chill step and then overcook the first batch for some reason. One of these days I want to make a bunch and freeze them so I’ll always have some on hand to bake. I always direct people to your page when they ask for the recipe. Thanks! :)

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and glad you’ve been a fan of these for years and have experimented with different add ins and toppings! You are definitely the first person who’s commented about incorporating crumbled bacon.

      Thanks for directing people to my page for the recipe, I really appreciate that!

  136. thank you o for the recipe i can’t wait to try them i made the crustless blue berry pie yesterday and every one raved abut it so good thanks Michele

    I have been cooking these since Christmas 2016. Can’t believe I haven’t left a review til now. They are perfect! I had to do some estimating with the oven temp due to not being sure whether or not it was fan-forced or not (our oven is only fan-forced), and how to cook them from being frozen… I just cooked them on a lower temp and on the same temp from being frozen but for a little longer and they still turned out incredible. My family is obsessed. Thankyou:)

    This is my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe and I get compliments every time. What are your suggestions for storing and transporting via car a large amount (400)? Not sure that I’ll have space to do single layers, and I’m nervous to stack them since they’re soft and chewy.

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and glad it’s your go-to choc chip cookie recipe!

      Wow…I have never transported that many cookies at once. I would probably accept that they will not arrive ‘perfectly’ in tact but I would just put them in big but semi shallow cardboard or plastic boxes or tubs, layer parchment paper between the layers, and stack them. You’re going to have to I would think. Google for ideas on this too…this is beyond what I have ever done but I’m sure caterers have tips and tricks out there.

  144. I’ve baked a million cookies and these turned out a little “chalky” for me. I could taste it in the dough before I baked, but was hoping it would even out in baking. Texture and rise were totally fine. Any ideas?

    1. I would say cut back on the flour a smidge if you think at all that could contribute to the taste. But since the rise and texture were fine, I am not sure. You don’t want to mess with the flour too much or they could spread but you could test that out. Also sure your baking soda is ok? That may have been the culprit, too.

    2. Me too! Taste okay but a bit chalky and not very sweet like a typical chocolate chip Toll House type cookie. I followed the recipe very carefully. What did I do wrong?

      1. It’s possible that your cream cheese made the dough chalky, you could have over floured the dough, I am not sure…. And these cookies are not going to have the same intensity of sweetness because by its very nature, cream cheese will add tanginess, not sweetness. You could try to add an additional 1/4 cup granulated sugar next time. Or just make these which I think is what you’re looking for https://www.averiecooks.com/the-best-soft-and-chewy-chocolate-chip-cookies/

  145. Because of room constraints in my fridge, would it be okay to chill the bowl of dough, THEN make them into balls right before baking?

    1. I would not because then you have to chisel out rock hard dough that will be on the crumbly side and difficult to work with and will make things challenging.

    Thanks so much.. I feel choc chip cookie drunk.. this is my 5 different recipe looking for the perfect one…

    Love this recipe. Both my kids (11 and 8) asked for these instead of birthday cakes last year. I’ve made them in the past mixing butterscotch chips with semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips, which were amazing! Thanks again for the great tips!

    Oh my! So very good. Can’t tell you how long I’ve looked for the perfect CC recipe. Of course I’ve had fun eating the near misses but these CC cookies are absolutely the best. I only tried them because of the cornstarch in the recipe. Hadn’t seen that elsewhere and I thought, why not try it? Made a second batch today (just as perfect as the first!) and froze the dough (in cookie portions) for use later. Honestly, I thought if I didn’t freeze some, I’d eat them all. Family agrees. This is a 5 star cookie. Thank you!!

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and glad you love these so much and that you have a freezer stash waiting, too!

    I’ve been making these cookies for a couple years, and I’m sad to say I’m just now leaving a review and a thank you!

    These cookies are insane.

    We make them for the neighbors, teachers, bake sales, parties, etc.

    They never cease to amaze people.

    Thank you so much for the recipe! I wouldn’t change a thing!!!!

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and I’m glad that you’ve been making these for years and that they’ve amazed lots of people!!

    Very yummy . Texture is soft and not crumbly at all. Forgot to smush the dough so my cookies were pretty globular. Didn’t chill the dough and turned out good. Baked for probably 10-12 minutes. Definitely WAY too many chocolate chips though. There was practically more chocolate than dough, and wasted many chocolate chips that just couldn’t get incorporated. Will use probably 1 cup next time.

    1. Easy to reduce the amount of chocolate chips if that is your preference next time. Many people love them with all the chocolate chips.

  151. 5 stars
    We love these cookies. Always come out so well. I make large ones so don’t get 28 though does make a lot of dough. Have frozen dough too and bake up just as well when thawed. Fantastic recipe.

  152. I am making this recipe, just wondering if the flour is sifted or not before measuring. I bake a lot and the directions don’t say sift and the video the flour didn’t looked sifted before measuring. I am sure I will be done baking before anyone sees this since it is so late. Looks great

  153. 5 stars
    I’ve made these cookies several times and each time they’ve come out amazing! and I receive a lot of compliments from them….so thank you for sharing this recipe!

    I do have a question about making ahead. I know you said that the dough can be made in advanced and left in the fridge for up to 5 days but what about freezing the dough? Have you done that before? Making the dough and then rolling the dough into balls and then freezing. I’m asking as I will be making a huge batch and would like to get the dough out of the way.
    Thanks in advanced!

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and I’m glad you love the cookies.

      Regarding freezing the dough, just roll into balls as if you were going to chill/refrig the dough balls but put into the freezer instead. Bake maybe 1-2 extra mins, no need to thaw in advance of baking.

  154. 5 stars
    I have made these several times and today, as my husband was watching he snarkily asked “you’re putting cream cheese in those?!” 🤣 silly man (who also knows nothing about baking). Anyways, they are my “go-to” recipe. I want to make them for my mom or grandma and let them “ooh ahh” and ask some questions – they are both excellent bakers and will definitely want to know the secret! Thanks for a fantastic recipe

    1. For this exact recipe to get it to be softbatch style soft, you do need it. You can omit it and they will be ok just not as soft with the intended texture.

    2. This is my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe, they turn our perfect every time! I do a mix of Ghirardelli milk and dark chocolate chips, so yummy!

      Quick question though, can you replace the chocolate chips with M&M’s?

      1. Glad you love them so much and they are your go-to recipe!

        Should be fine on the M&Ms.

  155. Ithese look amazing! I can’t wait to try them. After these cookies are baked how long can they sit out at room temperature? I was just wondering if they need to be refrigerated because of the cream cheese.

    1. No they do not and are fine at room temp for a few days. As always, cookies taste best the fresher they are.

    1. Thanks for the five star review and I’m glad they are a huge hit every time and the best cookies ever for you!

  156. 5 stars
    You have never had a cookie this good. This is the best cookie you will EVER have.. amazingly moist and rich and so, so chocolaty. This is replacing my old faithful recipe (which doesn’t even compare). So glad I found this. Happy baking!

  157. I am a big fan of all of your recipes! Can’t wait to make these cookies and am wondering if you can use this recipe and add M&M’s with the chocolate chips.

  158. Help Averie!! I forgot to wrap my dough in plastic wrap! I just took it out of the refrigerator and it’s soooo hard and crumbling. Howwww do I fix this ?

    1. You can’t really. The fridge dries out dough a ton. I would just bake them and hope for the best but be sure not to over bake or it will make them even drier.

  159. 5 stars
    You did an AMAZING job with these!! I love love love chocolate chip cookies and this is my go-to recipe for them. I always get TONS of compliments. I just read one of those recent comments and your reply about chiseling cookies out of cold dough and you are not lying. But I have always made them that way, because I never have room in my fridge to do otherwise. They aren’t as uniform in size, but they work.
    Just made these for maybe the 12th time (with many compliments) and just wanted to thank you!

  160. Love this recipe!!! Wondering if I can put all the dough I the refrigerator at the same time rather than the heaping mounds on plate?

  161. 5 stars
    This has become my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I always get compliments! If I’m in a rush and don’t have two hours for the dough to sit in the fridge, I’ve discovered sticking the dough in the freezer for about 20 min seems to work just as well.

    1. Thanks for the five star review and I’m glad that it’s your go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe and that if you’re short on time, the freezer works just as well for you!

  162. I’ve been making this recipe since you first posted it and I remember there being a side note in the comments about how to keep the cookies fluffy… I feel like it was something about backing off the flour and maybe adding a little extra of something else. Can you remember?

    1. I haven’t touched this recipe in years, it’s literally one of my top three most popular recipes of all times so I have never wanted to mess with it. In order to keep the cookies fluffy, hmmm I am not sure because I don’t remember anything like that. I’m sorry
      Nothing is coming to mind or ringing a bell with this recipe. You could possibly try adding 2 teaspoons of cornstarch, that might help you, not sure.

  163. 4 stars
    I absolutely love these! They have been a road trip favorite for holiday traveling & in between of course 😊! The only thing I’m wondering about is the color. The bottoms come out brown, but the tops are slightly less than golden brown (almost white). I even leave them in the oven longer. I’m not sure what I might be doing wrong? (I think I tried parchment paper once, and they came out a little better, but I can’t remember. Lol) Thanks again for an amazing recipe!

    1. Dark on the bottom, too light on top, could mean that your oven rack is a bit too low. I would bake on one higher up level of oven rack and that may help quite a bit. Glad you love the cookies!

  164. 5 stars
    I’m no baker, but these cookies are fool proof. I even used half white whole wheat flour and they still came out soft in the center. I really appreciate that your directions are very specific (i.e., how many minutes to cream the butter and cream cheese with an electric hand mixer), because I really have no idea what I’m doing, and with the specific directions these cookies came out so awesome. Thank you so much!

    1. Thanks for the five star review and I’m glad you feel that these cookies are foolproof! I’m also glad to hear that you appreciate my specific directions.

    These cookies are amazing! I’ve made them twice now, and I didn’t notice until I mixed up the 2nd batch that I was making them wrong!! I’ve been using the whole 8 oz of cream cheese, instead of the 2 oz it calls for…but they’re unbelievably good!! I do have to bake them for a few minutes longer, but we love them! Especially sprinkled w/ sea salt as soon as they come out of the oven :)

    1. Thanks for the five star review and glad they come out great with 8oz cream cheese rather than 2! I love sea salt on cookies too!

    Honestly, the BEST chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever eaten! So creamy and chewy! I used 2 cups of chocolate chips only, and it was still wonderful! This is my new choc chip cookie recipe! I can’t believe the difference the cream cheese makes. I wonder if I can add it to my other cookie recipes?

    1. Thanks for the five star review and glad these are the best choc chip cookies you’ve ever eaten! Adding cream cheese to other cookie recipes could involve some trial and error as it will change the structure/texture/etc. of the dough.

    I love these cookies the only choc-chip cookie I make but I want to make them in ramakins indiviual ramakins do you think that will work. please let me know asap want to make soon Thank you so much

    1. I have only tried the recipe as written so really can’t say how the ramekins will work. The texture I think will change possibly quite a bit. Good luck!

    Absolute best chocolate chip cookie recipe out there. I have tried many recipes and these far surpass others! Have been making them for at least 3 years now, probably longer.

  170. Hello! Question, is if okay if I make the cream cheese the same measurements as the butter? Because I like to bring the the taste of cream cheese

      1. Alright thank you ms. Averie! I’m wondering how to bring out the taste of the cream cheese without ruining the recipe.

  171. Hi Averie! How can I bake this recipe into a cookie cake – what adjustments would I have to make in how long to bake? Thank you!

    1. I’ve only made the recipe as written, so I really can’t give advice if you were to make substitutions. If you Google Averie Cooks cookie pie, there are quite a few options that will pop up for recipes that were already designed in that manner.

    These are amazing! I have now made these a second time. Can tell me what I need to do if I freeze the raw cookie dough? Do I bake frozen or does it need to thaw? I have never wanted token a cookie dough on hand but this is the best chocolate chop cookie. I have never had any luck baking them in the past and now I am hooked on this recipe. Thank you for sharing.

    1. If you freeze the raw dough just bake for an extra 1-2 minutes or as needed. No need to thaw and you can go straight from freezer to oven.

    The best cookies ever! Long story short, these are literally the cookies that stole my fiancé’s heart 3-1/2 years ago. Now his whole family loves them and requests them at every gathering. We’d love to incorporate this meaningful cookie into our wedding and give them as favors! However, the thought of baking 26 dozen right before the wedding sounds insane, so I’m wondering how long I can freeze the dough and maybe get a head start on that part?!

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and glad these are such a favorite for you two that you’d like to include them in your wedding celebration!

      I have frozen cookie dough for 6 months and have no problem with it personally. However since you’re serving these to wedding guests, I think 3-4 months is probably a bit better. I cannot even imagine making 26 dozen of these…my hat is off to you. Please let me know how things go and congrats on your upcoming wedding!!

  175. I did not expect these cookies to taste so good. I kinda expected them to taste like every other cookie recipe out there, but I will never make cookies any other way again. They are the best cookies I’ve ever tasted!

    1. Glad they are the best cookies you’ve ever tasted and that you’ll be loyal to this recipe!

    1. I’m sure you could but then you would have to alter other ingredients and play around with the batter and dough and do your own recipe testing.

    hi! thank you for sharing your delicious cookie recipe!!
    its one of the best that i’ve tasted ;)
    would like to ask though, what kind of oven do you use? mine is an electrical oven; i baked mine for 13minutes at 180degrees celcius. it tasted great fresh out of oven. pale but soft and kind of just melts in my mouth!!

    but on the next day its became moist. i kept in an airtight container. was wondering if i should bake it longer:/
    i stay in a tropical country.

    1. In this case because it’s very humid where you live I am guessing you should bake them longer, until they seem more set, whatever that means in your oven and your climate.

  177. I made the cookie dough last night and kept it in the fridge and took it out when I got home from work to soften a bit. Suddenly I realized I forgot to add the cornstarch into the ingredients last night. I’m hoping they still bake up the same. I sure hope so because they look so yummy! We shall find out!🤷🤷🤷

    1. It will bake fine. The texture will be slightly different – probably softer with the cornstarch, but they will still be soft.

  178. 5 stars
    Nice recipe! : ) I just try them and the flavor is just excellent but where I live is 7,000 ft altitud and they turn out no that thick. How can I change the baking soda to turn that thick? Thank you

    1. Being that I don’t cook at altitude, I am not much help here. But ask this question to Google and I know there will be a ton of answers for you.

    I’ve tried loads of chocolate chip cookie recipes and they never come out as good as these ones do.
    I only used 1 cup of the chocolate chips and next time I’ll cut down to 3/4cup.
    I also had to leave them in the oven for 12 minutes. – perfect cookies that are soft on the inside.

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and glad you love this recipe more than any others for choc chip cookies!

    I love these cookies and have made them several times. I tried them with white chocolate and cranberries and those were excellent too. Anyway, so that I never go without them, I would love to have some in the freezer. My question is, do I freeze the dough (in cookie form) or bake the cookies and then freeze?
    Thanks for your help!

    1. Thanks for the 5 star review and glad you love these cookies! You can do either but I prefer to freeze the dough rather than already-made cookies.

  182. I just made these and even though I added salt to taste, the cookies ended up tasting very bland. The only thing I did differently was use 1 cup of BITTERSWEET chunks + semisweet chips.. I followed everything else to a T. Hubby agreed and said something was missing – said it tasted bland. Any idea what I could do differently next time?

    1. I have no idea why they tasted bland to you…this is my most popular cookie recipe and I have never heard that from anyone and I get hundreds of comments a year about these cookies being delicious. Maybe add more salt? Maybe just use semi-sweet chips or chunks. Not sure. Thanks for trying the recipe.

    I have been searching for the perfect soft chocolate chip cookie recipe for the longest time. These really hit the target. They come out so fluffy, tender, soft and deliciously chocolatey. Definately my new favorite and now the only chocolate chip recipe i will use!

  184. Do I have to form the cookies into polices or can I just refrigerate the dough and then form the cookies?

    1. If you refrigerate the dough and then try to form cookies it can be very hard and difficult to work with; make as recommended by forming cookies first, then chilling.

      2. Thanks for letting me know this is your family’s fave cookie recipe!

    Hi
    Made these soft batch chocolate chip cookies and everyone at home loved them. They turned out so good.
    I just wanted to ask if there is anything that I can substitute the egg with, and still ger the same soft and chewiness in the cookies. few family members are allergic to eggs. Please help me.

    1. No, make as written for best results. Coconut flour is too absorbent and will not work here as written unless you are willing to do lots of testing.

    1. 9×9 or 9×13 pan, bake for 20ish minutes, purely guessing though since I haven’t personally tried.

  189. Has anyone tried this recipe with almond flour? I am diabetic and was curious if anyone has tried the almond flour and used sugar substitutes?

    1. I would not use almond flour here. It has very/no gluten and the cookies will not rise or turn out well, as written.

  190. 5 stars
    Averie, I am a big fan of yours and I made this recipe. I liked that you could make these, freeze & bake later. They were excellent and chewy. I made two batches and packaged them up with some jelly beans and bow for Easter take-home treats. My family loved them. Recently, I made a recipe for almond shortbread where they substituted cornstarch for some of the flour and the result was great so I was comfortable using it in this recipe.

    The cream cheese really made the difference. They baked in 8 -9 minutes and were perfect. Making them this weekend for a group of friends.

    1. Thanks for the 5 star rating and glad you were able to make, freeze, bake – and with jelly beans, how fun!

  191. I just made these. They are awesome! I had read through the comments before trying it and Katie’s comment about the dough being crumbly? While mixing mine it was staying crumbly and I was concerned but the longer I mixed it came together. I think it’s because the butter and cream cheese was still “cold” and not softened enough. Vickie W’s comment about the uncooked center? Mine looked a tad under-done as well but tasted fine. I cooked the first pan for 10 minutes, the second for 12 and the last for 14. My cookies didn’t spread… at all! But I’m blaming that on the choco-chips! I have never found a recipe that had too many chips in it but this one… wow! Next batch I’ll cut the chips down , let the butter/cream cheese come to room temp and see if that helps. Love this recipe and it’s definitely in my “keeper” file!

  192. Hi Avery, Am a new addition to your website and quite anxious to try your CCCC Cookies. But what is the “shelf life?”
    They would be bagged and heat sealed, so would they still be “good” for up tp 5 – 6 days? Would appreciate
    very much your reply.

    1. Fresh is always better with baked goods but yes they will keep 5-6 days, noting that they will of course taste best on day 1.

  193. I made these and they’re wonderful! I’ve baked chocolate chip cookies for years, but these are by far the best. So chocolaty! Absolutely my new favorite. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  194. hello averie! I’m new to your site, and it’s beautiful. I tried this recipe, and I thouht it was great. however, i never seem to say this, but i think you had WAY too much chocolate ! I used 1 1/2 cups of chips and that was loaded but still ok.

    1. As with anything, people’s tastes vary so do what you think is best with regard to the chocolate amount.

  195. These look and sounds amazing! I want to make them now but I don’t have any cornstarch on hand! :( is it absolutely necessary or can I omit it here?

    Thanks!

    1. I would say it’s absolutely necessary if you want the true softbatch texture and consistency. If you can live without some of that softness, okay to omit.

    1. It was 5 years ago and not sure if they still make these but it was the Enjoy Life brand. If you can’t find those I’d go with Trader Joe’s if there’s one in your area.

  196. They center of the cookies would not cook. I probably baked two rounds. The first round I followed the directions perfectly . . Still uncooked center. The second I probably cooked 15 mins and still uncooked. Anyone else have this problem?

    1. Not sure what to say as I’ve never had that problem with these cookies nor do I recall anyone else writing about it. If your dough balls are very domed and more like golf balls, flatten them to help alleviate the problem.

  197. I made these today after looking for a good CC cookie recipe. Boy oh boy did they hit the spot! I love soft cookies and these were perfectly tender and chewy, melt in your mouth perfection! Definitely will make this recipe again and again! I love that it calls for only 1 egg and 1 stick of butter–not fussy and quick to whip up. These were just amazing!

    1. Thanks for trying the recipe and glad they turned out amazing for you! Not fussy and quick are my goals!

    1. Go to the store and buy some if you want them to turn out like the photos. Or choose another chocolate chip cookie recipe that I have – I have about 25 other variations.

  198. This is the best cookie recipe ever!!! My daughter doesn’t like chocolate so I separated some of the dough before adding the chocolate chips and rolled those in cinnamon sugar. She said “Forget the cake, I want these for my birthday party!”

    1. Thanks for trying the recipe – with chips and without + cinnamon sugar. Sounds delish! I am glad these will trump cake for her birthday :)

  199. I don’t know what I could have done, but they didn’t spread at all. They were still in a ball. I doubled the recipe, the only thing I can think I did wrong is maybe I didn’t add the right amount of butter..

    1. Maybe you didn’t add enough butter or potentially added too much flour. Dough that’s overfloured doesn’t spread well and this is my guess in this case. In baking, use a light hand when measuring flour.

  200. My Fiance and I started a tradition last year of baking cookies and dropping them off to the police and fire station on Christmas Eve. We recently moved to Florida and I decided to try this recipe- it does not disappoint!! I can’t wait to make another batch and keep them all to myself! Happy holidays, and to anyone reading this- MAKE THESE COOKIES! :)
