Recipe - Peanut Butter Cake Cookies

Noah is a HUGE peanut butter lover. He really doesn't like chocolate, but will eat it as long as it's served with peanut butter. I don't get it either.

So these cookies were inspired by him. Plus the fact that I had chocolate cream cheese and no idea what to do with it. :)

1 container (8oz) Chocolate Cream Cheese
2 tbsp. Peanut Butter
1/4c Molasses
1c Flour
1 egg
Mix cream cheese, peanut butter, molasses, flour, and egg well.  Roll this mixture into 1" balls.
Spread sugar on a plate.  Take the cookie dough balls and flatten them into the sugar, so one side of the disc will be coated with the sugar.  
Place cookies sugar side up on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until tops of cookies start to crack.
I didn't put icing on these, but they would be SO good with it, since they are more of a cake-y texture cookie!  Just use a couple tablespoons peanut butter, 1/2c cream cheese, and 1/4c sugar.  Mix that together and top the cookies.  Yum!
