Recipe by: Eating Well Magazine March/April 1994 Preheat oven to 375~ F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, swirling the pan, until the butter turns nutty brown, 30 to 60 seconds. Pour into a large mixing bowl. Add cream cheese, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Add egg, egg white and vanilla; beat until well incorporated. Add the reserved flour mixture and chocolate chips and stir with a wooden spoon just until combined. (The batter will be runny.) Drop the batter by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake, one sheet at a time , for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Transfer the cookies to racks and let cool. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
