[Trisha's Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies]

Chad asked me to make these for the hockey team ... they're his wife, Trisha's, specialty.  She gladly gave me the recipe, and I gladly made them.  They are crispy on the outside and gooey-like-a-brownie on the inside.  I ate about a good 1/2 dozen of them in the first sitting ...

1 package mini chocolate chips divided
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup softened butter
1 package softened cream cheese
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 egg1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

- In a bowl, mix together flour and baking soda.
- In another bowl, beat butter, cream cheese and sugar until smooth and creamy. 
- Beat in egg until well incorporated. 
- Beat in melted chocolate until well combined. 
- Add flour mixture and mix well. 
- Fold in remaining chocolate chips and nuts.
- Drop by tablespoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheet.
