“It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!” – Agnes, Despicable Me

Yes, she is talking about a unicorn, but she easily could have been describing these cookies. They are so soft and moist, plus anything dipped in chocolate is delicious. These chewy cookies would be a yummy Valentine’s Day treat for your special someone – and very cute wrapped in a Mason jar.

Ingredients:

  • 8-ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

How-to

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In the bowl of a standing mixer, beat together cream cheese and butter.
  3. Add sugar and mix until smooth.
  4. Beat in eggs and vanilla
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture and stir until combined.
  6. On an ungreased baking sheet (or baking sheet with Silpat mat), drop rounded tablespoons of dough
  7. Bake for 10 minutes, until edges are set. When in question, I always err on the side of underbaked because they will still continue to cook ounce out of the oven. Transfer to wire rack and let cool.
  8. Cover baking sheet or plate with wax paper and set aside.
  9. Melt chocolate chips in microwave, stirring at 30-second intervals.
  10. Once melted, dip bottom of cookies and then place on prepared baking sheet or plate. Let chocolate harden. Enjoy :)

  1. These look so yummy! Of course, I might just put them in a mason jar, tie it with a bow… and give it to myself for valentine’s day. I’m very excited to try making these, thanks for sharing!
