Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies

The Cream Cheese Cookies I made on Sunday were so delicious, I just had to whip up another batch!  This time, I added some cocoa powder...can't ever have too much chocolate!



Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies

4 tbsp butter
2 oz cream cheese
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1+ tsp ginger powder
3/4 tsp vanilla
2+ tsp cocoa powder
1 egg
1/2 c wheat flour
1 c flour
handful of craisins
handful of mini chocolate chips

bake @ 375 for 10-12 minutes



These cookies hold their shape very well while baking.  The tops may look slightly under-done when you take them out, but they will firm up the rest of the way while cooling on a wire rack.  You don't want to over-bake the cookies, or the bottoms will burn.



I received a bottle of Smooth Ambler Old Scout Rye Whiskey for my birthday.  Cracked open that bottle this evening and tried it with the cookies.  Perfect match.
