Ingredients
FOR THE COOKIES
  • 2½ Sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • ½ c. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2¾ c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
FOR CREAM CHEESE FILLING
  • 12 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ½ c. powdered sugar
  • pinch of salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375ยบ and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Make cheesecake filling: Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and salt in a small bowl. Mix well until mixture is smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until slightly firm, about 30 minutes.
  3. Make cookie dough: Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Slowly beat in vanilla extract and eggs.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Stir into butter-sugar mixture. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Make cookies: Scoop about a tablespoon of the cookie dough and flatten into a flat, pancake-like circle. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of the cheesecake filling in the center. Form another tablespoon of cookie dough into a flat circle and place on top of filling. Pinch the edges together to seal, then roll the filled dough into a ball.
  6. Bake cookies for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly golden.
