Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was in the mood to bake today after visiting my son's new school. Why did that put me in the mood, who knows. (I have been searching the web for recipes and that probably was the reason I wanted to bake.) He is going into the 4th grade in September and will change schools. I remember when I was sending him off to Kindergarten and when the bus came he seemed so sad, so scared. He just looked at me with these big puppy dog brown eyes. Those eyes were saying, "What are you doing to me?". I have to get on this bus with a bunch of kids that I don't even know?

Well, he loves school and the new building is really amazing. It's a 4-5-6 building with 2 gyms, a pool and music lessons. It has just under 1500 kids spread over the 3 grades and is a very big school. The greatest thing is that it is still an elementary school and it definitely feels like a great transition place for middle school. We had a great tour today with the principal and look forward to taking my son there next week to check it out.

OK, back to the baking. I baked Cream Cheese-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. I used the recipe from BakingBites. She is right they make very large cookies. They baked up to be around 4" wide. As I have said before, not exactly good for the Weight Watchers diet.

The cookies were easy to mix up but not so easy to fill. The dough was hard to wrap around the cream cheese and white chocolate filling. When they baked up the filling thankfully stayed inside the cookie, so that was good. The cookies are soft in the middle and crisp on the edges. The filling really does give it that little something extra.

I brought some in for a few co-workers; I found that the cookies do not travel as well as smaller cookies. I think that the filling makes it a little too soft to hold up in baggies. My work friends just LOVED the cookies... "tastes like Christmas then chocolate and then yummmm cheesecake"... and the cookies also received to thumbs up from someone else.

I love to bring baked goods into work for everyone to enjoy:)

Give these cookies a try you will not be sorry they are delicious.
