A healthier, softer, chewier take on traditional chocolate chip cookies using Greek Cream Cheese.


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Green Mountain Farms Greek Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8 oz chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Combine the butter, Greek Cream Cheese, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a bowl and cream together until smooth (recommended to use a stand mixer or electric hand mixer).
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt then add to the wet ingredients and mix until incorporated, but don’t over-mix.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop golfball sized balls of dough and place them onto a cookie sheet, pressing them down with the palm of your hand slightly to flatten them a bit.
  6. Bake at 350F for 13 – 15 minutes until slightly browned and baked through. *The cream cheese makes them a bit lighter than standard cookies, so anticipate them being a bit more white than brown.
  7. Store in an airtight container or bag for up to 5 days.
