Chewy Chocolate Sugar Cookies


I get to bake cookies each week for the women in our ward who are celebrating their birthday. This time, I made Chewy Chocolate Sugar Cookies. When I saw "dark chocolate cream cheese" on the ingredient list, I was sold. I didn't know such a thing existed, but there it was at my local grocery store, plain as day, next to the regular cream cheese. It is delicious by the spoonful, or smeared on a strawberry. But, oh! It's even better baked into these cookies. They are rich and chewy, with a crunchy, sugary exterior. And so chocolatey, my goodness.

They get a big thumbs up from our house (even from Mike, and that is really saying something).

  1. Oh those look so good. Ryan's stopping by the store on his way home for a couple of things and I told him to grab some of that dark chocolate cream cheese. I noticed the recipe calls for brewed coffee which I don't have any of. Did you just omit it? Or perhaps you doubled the milk?

  3. So glad you enjoyed these cookies! They're one of my favorites! :)

    Dandee: The coffee enhances the chocolate flavor, but if you don't have any you can substitute and equal amount of milk. Enjoy!
