    Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

    Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

    This recipe is totally and completely based on a recipe by Averie Cooks for Soft Batch Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies.

    I only made a few changes because her recipe is SO GOOD. I want to be really straightforward… I add white chocolate morsels to the recipe because I love them. If you are not a big white chocolate fan you will want to stick to Averie Cook’s original recipe!

    To make this recipe you will need:

    Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe (below)

    cookie sheet (I used 3)

    parchment paper or silpat

    cookie scoop that holds 3 tablespoons of volume



    Tips for Success:

    The original recipe calls for a chilled cookie dough, but I found that I did not need to do that with the addition of confectioner’s sugar instead of granulated sugar.

    Room temperature ingredients are important here! See tips on how to quickly bring eggs and cream cheese to room temp. here.

    Best Ever Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

    These cookies do not spread. If you prefer a soft mound of cookie instead of a flatter version, feel free to do that! Here is a cookie that I did not flatten and you can see that it holds its shape nicely. If you choose this method the center may be a bit more underdone than a flattened cookie.

    I much prefer the chocolate chunks in this cookie vs. chocolate chips. The melting ooey-gooey factor is a BIG one when using chunks of chocolate.

    • 1/2 cup (113g, 1 stick) unsalted butter room temperature but not melted
    • 1/4 cup (2 oz.) cream cheese room temperature
    • 3/4 cup (150g) light brown sugar packed
    • 1/4 cup (30g) confectioners sugar
    • 1 large egg room temperature
    • 1 tbsp. McCormick vanilla extract
    • 2 1/4 cup (281g) all-purpose flour
    • 2 tsp. cornstarch
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1 tsp. kosher salt
    • 1 cup (6 oz, 170g) semi-sweet chocolate chunks
    • 1 cup (6 oz, 170g) white chocolate morsels (chips)
    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare three pans with parchment paper.

    2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment (you can also use a hand-held mixer) add butter, cream cheese, brown sugar and confectioners sugar. Beat on high for 2-3 minutes or until ingredients are fully combined. Scrape down sides of bowl as needed.

    3. With mixer on lowest speed, add in egg and vanilla and blend for about 1 minute.
    4. Add in flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt and then turn mixer on low and mix for about 1 minute, or until ingredients are fully incorporated.

    5. Add in semi-sweet chocolate chunks and white chocolate morsels and mix by hand until combined.

    6. Using a 3-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop batter out onto cookie sheet. I fit 8 cookies on two sheets then 4 cookies on the final prepared cookie sheet. (20 total cookies)
    7. Using your hand or the bottom of a kitchen glass, press the cookie dough down so that it not rounded on top. (PRO TIP: add extra morsels on top for a beautiful cookie presentation!)

    8. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies are better when slightly underdone and just barely brown on the edges. Keep a close eye that they do not get dark brown.

    9. Allow cookies to cool for 5-10 minutes before moving to cooling rack.

    You are going to LOVE these cookies.

    And if you don’t we can’t be friends anymore. Just kidding. Maybe.

    I added McCormick to my ingredient list because that is what brand I use and adore. You can see all the beautiful cakes and desserts I make using McCormick products click here.

    I think I groaned out load when I bit into this cookie. It's quite possibly the best chocolate chip cookie ever, and I do consider myself an expert!

    AMAZEBALLS. Made a double batch this weekend. Added 1 cup of sugar free chips (to feel less guilty) – all other ingredients I did double. This is my new go to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. The BEST ever. Just unreal. So so good. Thank you for sharing!

    We made these this weekend and the taste was really good but the texture was off..it was cake like. What did we do wrong?

    I see in the video you used a full block of cream cheese but in the directions it says on 2oz..

    So I’m wondering if there is anything else you changed in the video but didn’t change on the directions?

    I’m hoping to get a response as I have commented about this in another location tagging I Am baker and got nothing ☹️

    I have tried other things you’ve made and liked them, just curious to the changes on this why they don’t correlate!

    Thank you very much, another in home baker!!

    Sounds like a great recipe…have you tried adding peanut butter. If so how much would you add? My family loves peanut butter cookies, and this sounds like it would be a nice soft, moist peanut butter cookie. Your opinion please.

      Someone stated they used 2 oz of cream cheese (per the written recipe) and they were dry, in their opinion. Someone else stated they used 8 oz of cream cheese (per the video) and they turned out fine. I think I am going to try to follow the written recipe with 2 oz cream cheese and add 2 oz of peanut butter and see how it turns out.

    u used 8oz cream cheese it sead 2 oz

    SO GOOD! How much cocoa powder would you add to make these double chocolate chip? Would you alter the recipe in any other way to make them chocolate chocolate chip? Thanks!

    Luv your receipes!! Do you have a cook book???

    look yummy

    I love your recipes, they look delicious , cant wait to taste the ones i copied Thanks

    These cookies are the best chocolate chip cookies you will ever eat. Make sure you make a double batch. I used a 2tbsp measure and got a lot of cookies, so I could freeze some.

    Amazing cookies!! I found myself sneaking bites of dough while waiting for the cookies to come out of the oven.These are purple ribbon worthy! Thanks for sharing!!

    Can I use regular sugar instead since that’s what I have in the house?

    Hello my name is Hagar I’m following your recipes and it was a mazing so I hope to be like you some day .. thank you dear

    Don't Pass on Dessert!
