Chocolate and Cream Cheese Muffin Top Cookies

I saw these amazing muffin tops at the grocery store bakery the other day. I figured they couldn't be too hard. Well, come to find out, you actually need a pan. Yeah, I wasn't patient enough to wait to get a pan. So I improvised. I just put the batter on the sheet pan. They spread out a bit, so make sure you give plenty of room, but they turned out just fine.

Chocolate and Cream Cheese Muffin Top Cookies
From the muffin top recipe in the Prepared Pantry


1 1/2 cups flour 
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa

1 tsp baking soda 
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil 

1 tsp vinegar 
1 tbsp vanilla 

Cream cheese filling:

4oz of 1/3rd fat cream cheese
1/2 large egg, whisked (whisk and eyeball 1/2 of it)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat to 375.

Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet in another. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the wet. Mix until just combined. 

Spray a sheet pan (or, better yet, invest in a Silpat)

Use a 1/4 cup to scoop mounds of batter onto the sheet pan. Use two pans, these guys need room.

Mix the cream cheese, egg, and sugar. Fold in the chips.

Places 4 tsps of the cream cheese mixture on each muffin top.

Bake 25 minutes, or until done. Let sit on the pan for 20 minutes
