  • 2 1/4 cups Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 all purpose baking flour (blend should include xanthan gum)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup butter, slightly melted
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 large egg yolks, room temperature
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Mix together flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • In your standing mixer using the paddle attachment, add cream cheese, melted butter, brown sugar and sugar. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  • Add vanilla extract and egg yolks to mixer and continue to mix on low speed until ingredients are well combined.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Fold in chocolate chips by hand.
  • Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (up to 4 days).
  • About 15 minutes prior to baking, remove dough from your fridge and set it on your counter to soften. This will make the dough easier to handle.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line three cookie sheets with silicone liners or parchment paper.
  • Grab dough and roll into approximately 1 in. dough balls. Set on baking sheets and gently press down to slightly flatten.
  • You should have enough to make approximately 3 dozen cookies - 1 dozen per cookie sheet.
  • Bake first sheet of cookies for 11-12 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
  • Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Continue to bake each sheet of cookies until all three dozen are cooked.
  • Enjoy!
