How To Make Beecher's Cheese Curd Chocolate Chip Cookies

We know cheese curds in cookies may be a little outside the box - but trust us, it's worth a try! If you're feeling skeptical, just chop your cheese curds a little finer. You control how crazy you go with the cheese, listen to your intuition!

We used milk chocolate chips to give a more dynamic sweet-versus-umami flavor in each cookie. You can also control the sweetness of the cookie by adjusting your chocolate chip bitterness as desired.

Note: For a cozy twist, add 1 tsp of cinnamon and ½ tsp of allspice to the dry ingredient mixture. And if you want to take it to a spicy new place, replace chocolate chips for 2 bars (chopped) of a spicy dark chocolate.
