Can you guess the secret ingredient in these cookies? Of course you can. Because you guys are wicked smart. Oh and because it’s written in the name of the recipe. It’s thyme. And it’s not as weird as you might think. I know putting a savory herb in a chocolate chip cookie seems strange. But trust me. Chocolate chip cookies have never been so sophisticated!
But what if I told you there was a second secret ingredient! Drum roll please. It’s cream cheese! And it makes these cookies SO GOOD that I think I will put cream cheese in every cookie I make from now on. The cream cheese gives a richness to the dough that butter alone can’t accomplish. And it helps to keep the cookies incredibly soft and fluffy. Even several days after baking.
I know everyone all ready has a favorite go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. But don’t let that stop you from trying these Salted Thyme Chocolate Chip Cookies. You won’t be disappointed!
