Ultimate Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies from Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito


2 ¼ cups (255g) all purpose flour
¼ cup (32g) unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp. (8g) baking soda
½ tsp. (3g) salt
2 sticks (226g) unsalted butter, softened slightly
4 oz (113g) Cream Cheese at room temperature
1 cup (201g) granulated sugar
½ cup (110g) dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 Tbsp. (30ml) heavy cream
1 tsp. (5ml) pure vanilla extract
3 oz. (85g) bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
8 oz. (225g) of semi-sweet chocolate chips

I added toffee chunks instead of choc chips.


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, sift the flour with the cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In a bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle, combine the butter, cream cheese, granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Beat in the eggs, heavy cream and vanilla until blended. At low speed, beat in the dry ingredients. Add the melted chocolate and chocolate chips and beat just until incorporated. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the dough for at least 15 minutes or up to 2 hours.

2. Scoop heaping tablespoons of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them two inches apart. Bake for 12 minutes until the cookies are just set; shift the baking sheets for top to bottom and front to back half way through. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a rack to cool completely.

Note: The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

 I'm Sherin, aka kukku. 

A happy wife, an excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My husband is my pillar of support and my son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
