Ingredients You’ll Need

Unsalted Butter & Cream Cheese. To get that melt-in-your-mouth texture, look no further than these ingredients.

Butter and cream cheese are at the heart of our cookie recipe.

Without them, we wouldn’t have the rich flavor and tangy twist that make them so tempting.

Granulated Sugar. Makes each bite we take as sweet (and delightful) as possible.

Egg & Vanilla Extract. Acting as a binder, eggs hold all of our ingredients together. Vanilla adds a touch of its characteristic aroma and flavor.

All-Purpose Flour, Cocoa Powder & Baking Powder. These ingredients give the cookies structure, flavor and fluffiness.

All-purpose flour is the backbone of each cookie.

Cocoa powder’s deep chocolate satisfies those dark cravings while baking powder ensures that our cookies rise nice and high.

Confectioners’ Sugar. Like snow on Christmas morning, confectioners’ sugar is the perfect ingredient to roll our cookie dough in. Not only does it add sweetness but a delightful snowy appearance.

Unsalted Butter & Cream Cheese Provide rich flavor, melt-in-your-mouth texture, and a tangy twist.

Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies – Quick and Delicious!

Preparation. Preheat your oven to 350°F. It’s a good idea to line your making sheets with parchment paper so you can remove your cookies easily when they’re done baking.

Creaming the Base. Take a large mixing bowl and combine the ingredients for the base of the cookies.

Cream together the softened butter, cream cheese, and granulated sugar. Mix everything until it’s nice and smooth.

Adding Wet Ingredients. Once the mixture is creamy, add the egg and vanilla to it. Beat everything together until it’s fully added.

Dry Ingredients. Take a separate bowl and whisk the dry ingredients together. Mix the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder.

When you’re done, add this dry mixture to the wet ingredients gradually. Keep going until a soft dough forms.

Forming the Cookies. Using a tablespoon (or a cookie scoop if you have one), form the dough into balls. Coat each ball in confectioners’ sugar by rolling it.

Baking. Once the balls are ready, space them about 2 inches apart on the baking sheets you prepared earlier.

Put them in the oven and bake them for 10-12 minutes. You’ll know the cookies are ready when they have a crackled appearance on top.

Cool & Serve. Remove the cookies from the oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool. Once they’ve cooled completely, they’re ready to be enjoyed!
