Sure you can buy these at Subway 3 for $1,
but don't count on them being very fresh after sitting out for who knows how long.
For about $5 you can make a few dozen at home,
then proceed to eat them ALL because they are so darn tasty!
I took a batch of these beauties to a BBQ and they were GONE within the first hour.
You may already have these basic ingredients on hand:
1/2 cup Butter (aka one stick)
2 Tbs. Shortening (Crisco)
1/2 cup Brown sugar
3/4 cup of All-purpose flour
Now you're probably wondering why only 3/4 cup of flour?
There's no way I can make 3 dozen cookies with that!
You're absolutely right, that's why you're going to want to pick up
the secret weapon:
2 Boxes of "Jiffy" muffin mix
Don't forget the cream cheese (4 oz.) and the white chocolate chips (1 1/2 cups).
And milk because, let's face it after scarfing down a dozen of these, you're going to need it.
Step One: Let your butter and cream cheese soften while you make dinner.
Okay you don't have to make dinner.
Yes, you can just have these cookies for dinner, I won't judge.
Step Two: Beat together the cream cheese, butter & shortening.
This is the part where you hug your husband
thanking him for buying a KitchenAid stand mixer,
which literally takes ALL the work out of beating cream cheese!
Thanks, you get the first cookie!
Step Three: Add brown sugar and Beat some more.
Step Four: Add an egg and Beat some more.
Step Five: Repeat Step Four.
Step Six: Fold in flour along with the secret weapon.
Step Seven: Stir in white chocolate chips
Go ahead, give a couple chocolate chips to the four-year-old
who refuses to let go of your leg.
Step Eight: Let the dough chill out in the fridge for a half hour.
This is the hard part,
you may need to go watch an episode of Mindy or something.
I suppose if you're a glutton for punishment,
you'll wash the dinner dishes. Booo!
Step Nine: Preheat the oven to 350 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
If you're paranoid like I am,
spray that sucker with nonstick spray for good measure.
Step Ten: Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on cookie sheet.
Be sure to leave these guys some room because they're going to spread.
Step Eleven: Bake for about 12 minutes until the edges turn golden brown.
Step Twelve: Let them rest on the pan for a minute,
then cool on a baking sheet until you just can't take it anymore.
Then eat them,
give some to family and friends,
or just eat every last one and pretend nothing happened.
What cookies? I don't know what you're talking about!
