Chocolate chip cheesecake cookies

When looking for recipes, I always end up stuck between two things.

For instance, do I want to make cookies...or cheesecake?
What a hard decision right.
Well, why not make two in one?
Yup. Chocolate chip cheesecake cookies.

The firm buttery cookie dough on the outside, and the creamy cheesecake on the inside.

Start by putting one cup and two tablespoons of butter in a mixing bowl.

Add one cup of sugar

One egg

And three oz of cream cheese

Mix well

Slowly add in two cups of flour, 1/2 tsp. of baking powder, and 1/8 tsp of baking soda
Very slowly.
Or you'll end up with flour all over your black cardigan.
Not that I would know.

Add in 12 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Mix them in with the best utensil ever, your hands.

Roll spoonfuls into balls and place on a greased baking sheet about an inch apart.
Place in a 375 degree oven, and bake for 10-12 minutes until the bottoms are browned.

They will feel firm to touch. The inside will seem under cooked, but it's not, trust me.
It is the best of both worlds.
