Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

We have been on a cookie baking spree lately!  In the last 5 days, we’ve made so many batches of different cookies, I lost count!  It wasn’t because we were in a rush or anything, it’s just the inspiration and ideas kept coming like making a recipe for some of these best soft Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies!

During that time, we of course had to make ‘the’ cookie of all cookies right?  So here is LCA’s version of the Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookie!

We started with the base dough of our cream cheese cookie and added from there.

We thought it’d probably only take 1-2 tries to get it right but boy we were wrong!

We ended up going through a total of 5 batches to find the kind of character and tastes we were going for.  But we think the end cookie was totally worth it!

It retains all the classic elements of a chocolate chip cookie and adds the LCA element of the delicious cream cheese dough!  Hope you agree and will give this cookie a try soon!

The cookies are filled with textures reminiscent of a pillowy soft shortbread along with notes of vanilla and nut and of course, the chocolate chips at the end!

Just make sure to wait for the cookies to cool down once they come out of the oven, otherwise, they will crumble the second you try to pick it up!  You could also stick them in the freezer to hasten the process if you don’t want to wait.

4) In the meantime use a large mixing bowl to combine Almond Flour, sweetener, cream cheese, Vanilla Extract and browned butter.  Mix well for about 1 minute with a hand/stand mixer.  Note – make sure browned butter is at room temperature when pouring otherwise it will ‘cook’ the batter.

8) Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes (ours took 17 minutes) or until bottom edges start to slightly brown. Once done, wait at least 10 minutes for cookie to cool down prior to handling. We prefer enjoying the cookies once they have completely cooled down and hardened, which takes about 1 hour, but it’s up to you!
