Chocolate Swirls

From This Week for Dinner

1/2 C sugar
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1 t vanilla
2 C all purpose flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1 C semisweet chocolate ships, melted and slightly cooled


Heat oven to 350F. In large mixing bowl combine sugars, butter, cream cheese, egg and vanilla. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat at low speed until soft dough forms. Fold melted chips into dough until lightly marbled. (do not overmix)
Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 mins, or until edges are light golden brown. Cool completly before storing.

*This is one of the few cookies I've made that Jeff likes as much as Amber's Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Soft and tasty--melting the chocolate chips gives them a different kind of look.
