Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies - and these ones don't disappoint! Here I substitute some of the butter with cream cheese, making these light and chewy.

Ingredients

Butter 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , softened (125 mL)
Cream cheese 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) , softened (50 mL)
Packed brown sugar 3/4 Cup (12 tbs) (175 mL)
Granulated sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (50 mL)
Eggs 1 Large
Pure vanilla extract 2 Teaspoon
Semi sweet chocolate chips 1 Cup (16 tbs) (250 mL)
Raisins 1 Cup (16 tbs) (250 mL)
Dry ingredients
All purpose flour 2 1/2 Cup (40 tbs) (625 mL)
Cornstarch 2 Teaspoon
Baking soda 1 Teaspoon
Salt 1 Pinch (Optional)

Directions

GETTING READY

1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F or 180 degree C.

MAKING

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the butter, cream cheese, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat on medium-high speed until well-creamed, light and fluffy.

3. Add egg, and vanilla. Beat until combined.

4. In another bowl mix the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt until just combined.

5. Add the dry ingredients to the stand mixer slowly, in a couple of additions. Mix to incorporate.

6. Fold in the raisins and chocolate chips. Chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

7. Using a 2" scoop, form heaping mounds and flatten slightly with your hand and place on baking sheet.

8. Pop in oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges have set and tops are just beginning to set.

9. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

SERVING

10. Serve and enjoy!
