Definitely a tasty chocolate chip cookie, browning the butter goes a long way. The cream cheese does give the dough a bit of a different taste. Not necessarily bad, I probably wouldn't have guessed it was cream cheese if I didn't know. I did double the amount of vanilla extract though after tasting the batter to cover up the cream cheese taste a little. It's a good recipe and will satisfy a cookie craving, but not one I'd personally repeat.
