Ingredients
  

  • 6 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 10 oz dark chocolate about 70% cocoa, finely chopped
  • 1 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract with a wooden spoon until well blended.  Chill the filling while you make the cookies.
  • Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on 50% power for 2 minutes.  Stir, then return to microwave at 50% power in 30 second intervals until chocolate is about 80% melted; remove and stir to finish melting it. Stir in sugar while the chocolate is still hot, and then the eggs, one at a time (stirring to fulling incorporate before adding the next).  Stir in vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add to chocolate mixture and stir well to fully incorporate.
  • Roll cookie dough by tablespoonfuls into balls between your palms, then drop onto a parchment-lined baking sheet 2" apart. Make an indent in each cookie using your index finger, then drop cream cheese by about a teaspoonful onto each.  Bake for about 8 minutes, or until edges are cracking but centres are still soft.
