12 TBS butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups plus 3 TBS flour
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 325℉. Cream together cream cheese, butter, and sugars until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Mix in the vanilla.
2. Add dry ingredients and mix until mostly incorporated but a few dry streaks remain. Add in chocolate chips and mix well, until combined and no dry streaks remain.
3. Roll dough in 1 to 1-1/2 inch balls. Place 2" apart on lightly greased cookie sheets or use Silpat liners. Flatten balls slightly with your hand.
4. Bake for 12 minutes until edges are just barely golden brown. Let cookies cool for a few minutes before transferring to cooling racks to finish cooling.
