Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are definitely not your momma's cookies, however they are Grandma's! My mom had this recipe and said I should try it out.  Considering it has cream cheese and chocolate chips in it, I was more than happy too.  These cookies are soft, very moist and delicious!  I love cookies that have this type of texture and the cream cheese is subtle while the chocolate chips are not over powering.  These are not your typical chocolate chip cookies, to me they are better!
