This is the case of the disappearing cookies!!
 I have baked them twice now and both the times they have disappeared, mysteriously!!
Apparently, no one has got more than 1 cookie but of the 9 I baked the first time and 12 the second in a family of 5 they are disappearing. Making a mess of what I want to photograph.
So these are my first shots that I have to be content with.
Let start right in the beginning, when I said that I have to make cookies for Baking Partners this time around my kid no 2 was excited and she wanted to help me. Before I could read the recipe she had read it and decided that Mamma is making the

Ultimate
Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies

 To persuade me she listed out all the ingredients and went on ticking what we had at home. Ultimately the only thing I had to buy was brown sugar and eggs.
When I went shopping I forgot about the brown sugar and so I substituted with white sugar and 1 tsp cocoa powder.
I must say that the cookies were delicious and soft and just melted and manage to just disappear!
Many thanks Swati for choosing this delicious recipe at least for some days the question what are you giving in my tiffin has an enthusiastic response. Then I plan to shift to the next cookie, then the third then back again to recipe 1.
So do check out this Recipe by Tina ofhttp://www.pinaycookingcorner.com

Ultimate Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies


Ingredients:

2 ¼ cups (255g) all purpose flour
¼ cup (32g) unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp. (8g) baking powder
226g salted butter, softened slightly( my good old Amul)
113g Cream Cheese at room temperature (see notes below)
1 cup (201g) granulated sugar
½ cup (110g) dark brown sugar (I substituted with white sugar)
2 large eggs
2 Tbsp. (30ml) heavy cream (see notes)
1 tsp. (5ml) pure vanilla extract
85g bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
225g of semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used only 100 g)


Method: 

1.    Preheat the oven to 180ᵒC and line the tray with baking sheets with butter paper.
2.    In a medium bowl, sift the flour with the cocoa powder, baking soda and salt (if using).
3.    Combine the butter, cream cheese, granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until fluffy, about 3
minutes.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
4. Beat in the eggs, heavy cream and vanilla until blended.
5. Hand mix some the dry ingredients till the flour is mixed the at low speed beat in the dry ingredients.
6. Add the melted chocolate and chocolate chips and beat just until       incorporated.
7. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the dough for at least 15 minutes or up to 2 hours, mine was in overnight.
8. I made small balls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets,     spacing them two inches apart.
9. Bake for 12 minutes until the cookies are just set.
10. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, and then transfer them to a rack to cool completely.
11. The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Notes:
1.    For 113g of cream cheese I hung 1 cup of curd overnight, in the morning I took only 36g of the hung curds, mixed it with 36g of paneer and 36g of fresh cream (Amul). The mistake here was I should have used the chutney jar and crushed the paneer then added chilled the cream and curd and beat it.
Since I added all 3 together in the big jar and I was worried that I will end up with butter I had to hand beat it on ice.  Unnecessary extra work but I am learning. : D
2.    As heavy cream is not available in India take the Amul fresh cream do not shake the tertapack snip off and measure 2 tblsp.
3.    The last two steps that are cool on the baking sheet and transfer to wire rack and store in air tight container were theory in my case. They had as I said mysteriously disappeared.
