My sister and I love chocolate cookies and what’s better than adding cream cheese frosting to the top?! Chocolate cookies with cream cheese frosting are the perfect combination.

We’ve been trying to eat healthy but sometimes you just have to let yourself have a little fun. these cookies were the perfect treat. I used a small cookie scoop to help limit my portions. These are definitely worth all the calories. I really liked how soft and cakey these cookies turned out! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.


Chocolate Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • 2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 stick of salted butter, room temp
  • 1 block of cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 – 3 1/2 cups powder sugar, depending on desired consistency
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream




Chocolate Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix until smooth, creamy and light in color.
  3. Add the all purpose flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. Mix slowly to combine.
  4. As the dough comes together, add the vegetable oil and then mix until thoroughly combined. The dough should be really soft but not sticky at all.
  5. Roll the dough into small balls, using about 1 Tbsp of dough per ball. I use a 1 Tbsp cookie dough scoop to help me portion out the dough. Roll into a ball and flatten slightly. Arrange on a parchment, and then repeat.
  6. Bake at 375° for 7-9 minutes, the cookies will spread slightly, puff up and start to crackle when they are ready to come out of the oven. 
  7. Allow the cookies to cool, on a cooking cooling rack.
  8. Once the cookies are completely cool, make the cream filling by creaming the butter and cream cheese with either a stand mixer or electric hand mixture until smooth.
  9. Slowly add in the powdered sugar and a little bit of heavy whipping cream (1 Tbsp at a time) until all of the powdered sugar is added.
  10. Add the vanilla extract, mixing until combined.
  11. Add more whipping cream to adjust the consistency of the filling, if needed.
  12. Spoon a dollop of cream into the center of the cookies and smooth out.
