Maple Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts

Baking is something I am just not good at. I don’t have the patience and I hate measuring. Because I have challenged my self to write recipes for all the food I create so that I can share them here, I have gotten better with paying attention to measurements. Because of that, I have tried to bake a few things that have actually turned out so I decided to try some cookies. I did some research of what I wanted in a chocolate chip cookie, did some experimentation and came up with what I think is a great cookie. Slightly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. If you make them, I think these Maple Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts may be your new favorite cookie.

Here is what you need to gather:

  • 2 Sticks of Butter, Softened
  • 2 Eggs, Room Temp
  • 1/2 C of White Sugar
  • 3/4 C of Brown Sugar
  • 2 T of Vanilla Extract
  • 4 T of Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 of a Bar of Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 3 C of White Flour
  • 1 t of Salt
  • 3 T of Corn Starch
  • 1 t of Baking Soda
  • 1 Bag of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 C of Crushed Walnuts

To make the cookies first hat your oven to 350 degrees.  I also like to use a Silpat Oven Mat for my cookies. I think they just come out better and more evenly cooked. You can find them on Amazon, they are worth the money.

The steps are as follows:

  • Cream the butter with the two sugars, maple syrup and vanilla.
  • Combine and then beat on high with your hand mixer until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Next, add in the cream cheese and combine well.
  • Add the eggs one at a time and combine each egg into the mixture before adding the second.
  • Add in the cornstarch, then the salt, then the baking soda and combine well.
  • Add the flour in 1/2 C at a time until it is all incorporated.
  • Finally, add the chocolate chips and the walnuts and mix well.
  • Maple Cream Cheese Cookie Dough
  • The dough when it is done.
  • Drop the dough by the spoonful onto your cookie sheets. I used about two tablespoons of dough for each cookie and they came out the perfect size.
  • dough, silpat mat, cookies
  • Use about two tablespoons of the dough for perfect cookies.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, check your oven, but the cookies should just be slightly brown on top when done.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on the pan for ten minutes.
  • chocolate chip cookies

These cookies came out so chewy with a slight hint of maple and a great crunch from the walnuts. They are a perfect Fall treat for after school or to have with your morning coffee. Plus they made my house smell like a candle. I think you will enjoy them. this has given me confidence to possibly try some more baking recipes. Maybe a Pineapple Upside Down Cake? I would appreciate any recipes you want to share with me! Leave them in the comments below!
