Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

My friend Rachael told me about this intriguing recipe and sent it over with this description. It’s really distinctive in flavor and so glad she is sharing with us!  Rachael:  “This is a recipe that my husband brought home from a work potluck years ago and said, “You have to make these!” I love them because they are sweet and savory. This recipe is for lovers of all things cream cheese! It is a soft cookie that bakes white on the top and is golden on the bottom. Using real butter is a must (I use to be cheap during college years and would bake with margarine all the time and have seen the error of my ways). Make up a batch of these and see if you like them as much as our family does.”

She wrote:  I added equal amount of baking powder and baking soda because I like the edges crispy 😋. I would recommend putting the dough in the fridge for an hour or so it. makes them easier to manage. Thanks Janet!
