For Cookie Dough

• 1 cup softened butter

• 3/4 cup white sugar

• 3/4 cup packed brown sugar

• 2 eggs

• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

• 2 cups all-purpose flour

• 2/3 cup cocoa powder

• 1 teaspoon baking soda

• 1/2 cup chopped pecans

For Filling

• 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

• 1/2 cup white sugar

• 1 egg

• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract



•             Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a large bowl using an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract until creamy.

•             Sift flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda together in a bowl. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Fold in nuts. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.

•             While dough is chilling, beat cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth.

•             Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

•             Remove dough from fridge and form about 1 tablespoon dough into a ball; make an indentation and fill with about 1 teaspoon filling. Place cookie on an ungreased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.

•             Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden, for 11 to 13 minutes. Allow cookies to cool completely before removing from the baking sheet, for about 20 minutes.
