Wowzer. This is the best chocolate chip cookie I've ever eaten, and to think it all started because I wanted to make chocolate chips and didn't want to go to the store for eggs. Cream cheese is the secret ingredient to these soft and chewy cookies. You won't miss the eggs, and I'm wondering why I didn't always make chocolate chip cookies with cream cheese?

I skipped the step where you're supposed to put the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes, and they still turned out beautifully.
