Baked Sunday Mornings: Cream Cheese Chocolate Snacking Cookies

It’s a miracle these cookies ended up in the oven– the dough was so smooth and tasty on it’s own. Almost like pudding.

And if you know me at all, you know that chocolate pudding is one of my huge weaknesses.

But they did get baked and I was very happy with the final product. Soft and chewy cookie, perfect size. They taste even better as they cool. I used a medium scoop and got about 30 cookies.

We have friends coming over for dinner tonight and my sweetie suggested I make homemade chocolate malt ice cream sandwiches for the dessert.

I was planning on making these cookies for them but loved CCCSCs so much that I made a second batch of dough just for the sandwiches. (without chocolate chips)

The original batch of cookies I am definitely keeping for snacking. šŸ™‚

I had a ladies’ clothing swap to go to and took a bag of cookies with me. Otherwise I know I would have single-handedly eaten them all!

Since I had to throw out more than half of my Mississippi Mud Pie, I was happy to share the cookies with friends. We made a valiant effort, but it was just too much pie for two people to handle. A batch of cookies is much easier to finish off!

I’ll include the outcome of the ice cream sandwiches in a separate post, it was my first time making chocolate malt ice cream and I can’t wait to let you know how it turned out!

In the meantime head over and see how my Baked Sunday Mornings friends’ cookies turned out!

  1. Oh my god that dough! I was actually considering using it as frosting one of these days! And I was also thinking of using the cookies as a component in ice cream sandwich! (I was just too lazy to make it happen) I can’t wait to read your post about them!

  2. Great job with the cookies! I love your little bags of cookies. Looks so nice to give them away like that. I dough was good to eat…a little too good! šŸ™‚

    1. Sarah–I’m sure there are similar bags at baking supply shops, but I got mine from Whole Foods. They have a bulk cookie area and those are the bags that you use when you buy them. I love them too!
