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. 🙂

 

Peanut Butter Cake Cookies - soft and chewy in the middle with a little bit of crunch from sugar coating!

 
Ingredients:
1 container (8oz) Chocolate Cream Cheese
2 tbsp. Peanut Butter
1/4c Molasses
1c Flour
1 egg
Sugar
 
Directions:
 
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!

  1. I want to make these but have a question. What is chocolate cream cheese?

    1. That was popular in stores a few years ago (when I made this article)…you can substitute regular cream cheese with 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp cocoa powder if you can’t find the chocolate variety!
