Beecher’s Cheese Curd Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cooking and Serving Tips

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 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon 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.

Recipe

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a medium-size bowl, stir the flour with baking soda and salt; set aside.

In large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar at medium speed until lightened in color.

Add the vanilla, followed by the eggs, one at a time. Mix on low speed until incorporated.

Gradually blend the dry mixture into the creamed mixture. Stir in curds and chocolate chips.

Scoop by tablespoon and form into neat spheres, then place onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.

Press a piece of chopped cheese curd into the top of the cookie ball (optional).

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown.

Sprinkle tops with salt, if desired.
