2015 Daily December 2--cream cheese chocolate chip cookies

We have tried to have the tradition this year that on Sundays we make a different type of cookie as a treat.  We have tried out some yummy recipes.  This past Sunday Miss E made Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip cookies from a recipe a lady at church gave us.  They were soooo good!  Super light and soft.  Enjoy!
Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies
 1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 oz cream cheese
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp lemon extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream butter, add sugar and beat until smooth and fluffy.  Add cream cheese, blend then add eggs, vanilla and lemon extracts. Mix well.  Mix in flour, baking powder and baking soda.  Stir.  Add chocolate chips and mix well.  Drop on lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake 350 for 10-12 minutes.

note:  if you double these, just use a full 8 oz cream cheese instead of 6, then you won't have any leftovers.  They turn out great!
