Let's be honest - is there something better than chocolate chip cookies? Especially when they are still warm fresh of the oven? It's sounds almost impossible, but there is a way to make these delicious little treats even better!

Averie Cooks shared her take on the classic chocolate chip cookies, she adds cream cheese to make them even more yummy! 


  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter (softened at room temperature) 
  • ¼ cup cream cheese, softened (regular - don't use fat-free)
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt  (to taste)
  • 2 ¼ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks (your favourite brand)


  1. Combine the butter, cream cheese, sugars, egg and vanilla in a mixing bowl (if you have a stand mixer even better!) Beat on medium-high speed until the mixture is well-creamed, light and fluffy for about 5 minutes. If you are using an electric hand mixer you might need to beat for a few more minutes.  
  2. Add in the flour cornstarch, baking soda, optional salt, and mix until just combined for about 1 minute. Don't forget to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl!
  3. Add chocolate chips and chunks, and beat to incorporate, or you can even fold in by hand.
  4. Using a cookie scoop, or an ice-cream scoop, form heaping mounds. You should be able to make around 28 cookies. Place them on a large plate and gently flatten them using your palm. Then, cover with a plastic wrap and let sit in the refrigeration for at least 2 hours or up to 5 days.
  5. Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a baking mat or spray with cooking spray and place the cookies at least 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or until edges have set and tops are just beginning to set. Do not bake longer than 10 minutes as cookies will firm up as they cool.
  7. Let the cookies cool down on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing or transferring to a rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
