So, what is this secret ingredient, might you ask? It’s cream cheese! You may think it sounds odd to add cream cheese to a chocolate chip cookie recipe, but when you add it in moderation, it won’t affect the flavor – it will only enhance it and leave you with a perfectly moist and fluffy batch of cookies.
