These Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies are melt in your mouth soft and loaded with a creamy chocolate center.
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.
