Italian Cookies Recipe


My grandma has worked on a recipe for chocolate chip cheese cookies for years and this is the final result and it’s perfect!!


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips




Preheat oven to 350°F.


With an electric mixer cream butter and sugars until nice and creamy.

Add cream cheese and continue to mix until all lumps are gone and it is nice and smooth. Add vanilla and egg and mix.


Slowly add flour, a little at a time. Add baking soda and salt and mix well, but not too much!


Turn off your mixer and add the chocolate chips, folding by hand with a rubber spatula.

Scoop cookie dough by the rounded tablespoon onto a cookie sheet; make sure they aren’t too close though!


Bake in your oven for 9-11 minutes, I do mine for 10.


Cool on a rack and once they are all the way cool put into a plastic bag or container and keep in the fridge!


Since they have cream cheese in them you don’t want them to spoil!



These are the best chocolate chip cookies ever! They stay nice and moist!


Makes about 3 dozen.
