  • 4 1/2 cups (576g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks or 226g) salted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (224g or 8 ounces) vegetable oil
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (125g) confectioners sugar
  • 2 large (3.50 ounces - 4.0 ounces) eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cups mini chocolate chips


  • Pre-heat oven to 375°F and line a few baking sheets with parchment paper. (I bake them at 350°F in a convection oven)
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, oil, and sugars on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, scraping the sides as necessary.
  • Reduce speed to medium and add the eggs, one at a time, mixing just until combined.
  • Add the vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Reduce speed to low and add the flour in three additions, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  • In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add in the brown sugar. Beat on high until the brown sugar granules break down and it is a smooth consistency. Add chocolate chips and stir by hand.
  • Scoop out 1/4 cup of the sugar cookie dough for each cookie, dividing each in half.
  • Flatten the bottom half of the cookie in your hand, then put a teaspoon or two of the cream cheese filling in the center. (You can fill them with up to a tablespoon of filling, just make sure the edges of the cookie dough can seal.)
  • Place the top half of the dough over the filling, sealing the edges. Be sure to shape each cookie like a hockey puck so the edges do not burn.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes.
  • Let cool on baking sheet.
