A decent cookie, but disappointed. I used a devil's chocolate cake mix and I guess it overpowered the cream cheese, because it tastes like a regular double chocolate chip cookie -- it's hard to work with, the batter is very dry. I won't make it again. http://www.justapinch.com/recipes/dessert/cookies/cream-cheese-cake-mix-cookies-8.html?source=fork_fb_cream_cheese_cookies
Never buy boxed brownie mix again! So simple, so easy. Not just frugal but cuts out the unknown ingredients. Brownie Mix $0.30 /mix. 1 Cup Sugar, 1/2 Cup Flour, 1/3 Cup Cocoa, 1/4 tsp Salt, 1/4 tsp Baking Powder. Add: 2 Eggs, 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil, 1 teaspoon Vanilla. Bake @ 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Can put all dry ingredients in a jar for Christmas :)
Layer a 9x13 pan with chocolate chip cookies. Mix an 8 oz package of cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 egg and layer on top of cookies. Add another cookie layer on top of the cream cheese layer. Bake in the oven at 350 until the cookies are done.
