Recipe Roundup: Cream Cheese Hershey Bar Cookies

photo 2-2I saw this recipe about a month or so ago on Pinterest and have been meaning to make these cookies for about 2 weeks now. But then life happened… Tonight, after working late and realizing that I needed a recipe for Thursday, I flew into action and hoped for the best. Thankfully, the baking gods were on my side and these turned out yummy.  They’re lighter than a chocolate chip cookie, but similar in texture, and oh so creamy. Enjoy!

Recipe adapted from Cupookie

Ingredients
3 oz cream cheese
1 stick butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 3/4 cup flour
4 Hershey’s Bars, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Cream butter, cream cheese, and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add egg and vanilla. Mix in flour and baking powder just until combined. Stir in chopped chocolate.
  4. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
  5. Scoop out dough onto lined baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned.
