Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies

1 cup butter (softened)
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chips

Directions and Story:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugars with a mixer until creamy.  Add cream cheese and continue to mix until all the lumps are gone.  Add vanilla and egg and then mix again.  Slowly add the flour (a little at a time).  Proceed to add baking soda and salt.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Bake for 9 to 11 minutes.  (But I ended up baking them for around 15 minutes)
The story for this is that I had been Pinteresting all day, drooling over the good food I had found.  This was a recipe that sounded tasty and it wasn't too hard. Plus, I was feeling like chocolate.  When the cookies were done, there was a slight taste difference between regular chocolate chip cookies but, not too much. The dough sure was good though!
