Back in July, we were preparing to go on a campout with my parents, my little brother, my older brother, and my nephews.
My mom asked if I could bring some cookies to share. While I could have easily gone and picked up a package of Chips Ahoy from the store, I decided to try and use up some ingredients in our fridge.
I had a package of cream cheese and some blackberries that needed to be used up, and I thought that a cream cheese cookie sounded absolutely delicious!
I combined a few different cookie recipes that I had, and I anxiously put these in the oven.
They turned out great – everyone LOVED them. My little brother told me it might be the best thing he’s ever eaten (though he followed that up with, “Well, I do say that about a lot of things).
I do think they are one of my favorite cookie recipes now, though!
They are pretty fast to throw together, require no chilling time, and they are a fun change from a traditional chocolate chip cookie!
