ULTIMATE CHOCOLATE CREAM CHEESE COOKIES

Baking Partners, a baking group created and hosted by Swathi Iyer, I am a part of  this group, this time Baking Partners decided to go with the theme cookies. Being part of the 'Baking Partners - A Group of Home Bakers', our challenge for this month, Suggested by Tina of  http://www.pinaycookingcorner.com/ suggested, Ultimate Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies from 'Food & Wine Best of the Best Cookbook Recipes Vol. 14.'

Here it is a simpliest and most favourite cookies recipe, the best ever chocolate cream cheese cookies. These cookies truely are as good as they look, with a soft dense inside, and little harden from outside. These cookies are every bit of comfort you could possibly need and they are as good as they sound.

INGREDIENTS:
2 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa powder
2 tsps Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
2 sticks / 226 gm Unsalted Butter (soften)
4 Oz Cream Cheese, at room temperature
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
2 Large Eggs
2 tbsps Heavy Cream
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
3 OZ Bittersweet Chocolate (melted and cooled)
8 OZ / 225 gm of Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips 


METHOD:
Preheat the oven to 350 F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, shift the flour with cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat about 3 minutes, with a electric hand mixer until fluffy.

Scrap down the sides of the bowl. Beat in the eggs, heavy cream and vanilla until blended.

At low speed, beat in the dry ingredients. Add the melted chocolate and chocolate chips and beat just until incorporated.

Cover the bowl and refrigerate the dough for at least 15 minutes or upto 2 hours.

Scoop heaping tablespoons of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the cookies are just set. Shift the baking sheet for top to bottom and front to back half way through. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a rack to cool completely.

The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for upto 3 days.
