If you love chocolate and cream cheese, you'll love these cookies. At little goes a long way. Make them small, they do not spread.

  • In large bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in cream cheese, egg, and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; mix into creamed mixture to form a soft dough. Fold in the melted chocolate until the dough is just marbled. Do not over mix. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 2 inches apart.

  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are light golden brown. Cool completely before storing.

These just tasted like brownies. And if you don't wait long enough for the chocolate to cool you will not get the "swirled" effect. Read More

These were fair. Certainly not a loss but I'm not sure I'd make them again. I have a different recipe for chocolate swirl cookies I like better they come out a little fluffier. This recipe produced chewier cookies - I'm not sure I'd say there were like brownies but not crispy or soft like cookies normally are. Taste-wise they're fine. The combo of flavors works. Read More

Look great but just so-so. I expected more flavor and really have no idea what to add that could make this better. Not going to make these again. Read More

These cookies while quite nice looking were just ok. I think they needed more chocolate flavor. I am giving this recipe four stars because the texture was awesome it was just lacking flavor. Read More

As others have mentioned something is missing. They have an excellent soft brownie like texture. Needs a bit more sweetness to be considered a true cookie maybe add some frosting. Descent but I won't make again. Read More
