Guys, I made my Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookies chocolate flavour, and stuffed them with cheesecake. Cheesecake Stuffed Double Chocolate Cookies! Best decision ever.

I absolutely love this cookie recipe. That’s why I call it my favourite. Today, I’ve made them even better, and now I can’t decide how I like them!

Absolute chocolate/cheesecake heaven!

How to make Cheesecake Stuffed Double Chocolate Cookies

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • unsalted butter
  • light brown sugar
  • caster/granulated sugar
  • large egg
  • vanilla extract
  • plain/all-purpose flour
  • cornflour/cornstarch
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • cocoa powder
  • chocolate chips

For the cheesecake centres:

  • cream cheese
  • caster/granulated sugar
  • vanilla extract

To make these cookies, let’s start with the cheesecake centres. Beat together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract until smooth and combined.

Place 9 – 12 teaspoons of the mixture on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, then freeze until solid – about 1 – 2 hours.

For the cookies, whisk together the flour, cornflour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. Set aside.

Whisk together the butter and sugars until combined. Add the egg, and vanilla, and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.

Roll the dough into 2oz balls – about 9 big balls. Or you can make about 12 smaller balls. Form the balls into flat, round circles, and place 1 teaspoon of the cheesecake mixture into the centres.

Form the dough back into balls, sealing the cheesecake centre. Roll each ball in granulated sugar, and press the chocolate chips on top.

Place the dough balls onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat, flatten them slightly (them won’t spread much in the oven) and bake for 10 – 12 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

This recipe makes 9 big cookies, or 12 normal-sized cookies. Decide how many you want to make, and that’s how many teaspoons of the cream cheese mixture you want to freeze.
