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.
