  • Use cream cheese in the block style, not the spreadable kind. And make sure it's full fat (not light).
  • Start with room temperature butter and cream cheese. This will allow them to blend evenly.
  • DO NOT place cookie dough on hot baking sheet and let it sit. Bake immediately. Otherwise you will have FLAT cookies.
  • Bake just until lightly browned, then let sit for a couple minutes on the cookie sheet until set, before moving to wire rack to cool.
  • Use our guide on how to freeze cookie dough.
