Did someone say cream cheese and dark chocolate?
This week's Baked Sunday Mornings recipe features Cream Cheese Chocolate Snacking Cookies from the cookbook, Baked Elements.
I had read mixed reviews beforehand so I was skeptical of the results. But I have to say, I was quite pleased with them.
These cookies, when made exactly how the recipe directs (chill dough, teaspoon sized drops, turn cookie sheet halfway through baking), turn out a tad crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside...which is exactly the way I like my drop cookies.
The dark chocolate and cream cheese add a hint of bitterness, but the chocolate chips offset that - especially when accompanied by a cold glass of milk.
The recipe called for a dark unsweetened cocoa powder - the only thing I could find locally was Hershey's Special Dark 100% Cocoa powder. I'm sure if you found a higher grade cocoa at a specialty shop or online, the results would be even tastier :)
I give these cookies two thumbs up! And so did all four of my kids..."This tastes like a brownie," and "it's ok to double-dip in your own glass of milk..." ? Thanks for another great recipe, Baked!
