Reply faithcatherine August 5, 2013 at 3:48 pm (7 years ago) Thanks Miss Messy! I had to give them away so I wouldn’t eat all of them!

Reply Tina @ Tina's Chic Corner August 6, 2013 at 10:29 am (7 years ago) I love love love peanut butter cookies and these look so chewy and amazingly delicious! I used cream cheese in my chocolate goey cookies and you’re absolutly right – they really give a cookie great taste and texture, unlike butter (don’t get me wrong, I love butter.) 🙂 Reply faithcatherine August 6, 2013 at 10:42 pm (7 years ago) Thanks Tina! I love butter too but the cream cheese does add so much. Maybe sometime I’ll add half cream cheese and half butter and see what happens! Reply noyomoco August 7, 2013 at 10:26 am (7 years ago) These sound delicious! I’ve never added cream cheese to cookies, but you can’t argue with those beautiful results! So thick and chewy 🙂 Reply faithcatherine August 7, 2013 at 11:34 am (7 years ago) Thanks Jennifer! You should try it sometime- it really does work wonders in cookies! Reply BruCrew Life August 10, 2013 at 1:31 am (7 years ago) Shut the front door! These sound amazing!! Must try soon for sure. Reply Barbara Bradford August 14, 2013 at 2:38 pm (7 years ago) Oh these do look so good… I am excited to see the texture in these cookies. Some peanut butter cookies can be a bit dry. Reply faithcatherine August 14, 2013 at 3:32 pm (7 years ago) These ones aren’t dry at all, and they’re certainly full of texture! Thanks Barbara! Reply Tahnycooks August 14, 2013 at 2:52 pm (7 years ago) These cookies sound fantastic! You can never go wrong with peanut butter!! Reply Tahny Lowry August 14, 2013 at 2:53 pm (7 years ago) You can never go wrong with peanut butter in any form! These look fantastic!! Reply faithcatherine August 14, 2013 at 3:25 pm (7 years ago) Thanks Tahny! Reply EmilyMilligan August 23, 2013 at 6:48 pm (7 years ago) Do you think that you could use agluten free flour? Reply faithcatherine August 24, 2013 at 2:25 pm (7 years ago) I can’t say for sure because I’ve never baked with gluten free flour and am unfamiliar with the protein content and ‘science’ of it. You are more than welcome to try, I just can’t guarantee that it will work well. Let me know how it is if you do try! Reply Julie Koehler October 21, 2013 at 6:58 pm (6 years ago) I am making these cookies but there is no temperature mentioned. Could you update this, I am baking them at 0350 degrees. Reply faith October 21, 2013 at 7:49 pm (6 years ago) Thank you so much for catching that and letting me know! The cookies should be baked at 350˚F, so you were baking them correctly. I will update that in the recipe. Thanks Julie! I hope you like them! Reply Ashley June 21, 2014 at 7:33 am (6 years ago) I tried these last night. I added white morsels and used a fork coated withsugar to press them down some. They came out a little more cakel-like than I like so I added 1/4 cup more of white sugar and 2tbsp of butter to half of the batch…chewy!!! Yum! All I had was reduced fat cream cheese so that could have been my problem. Reply faith June 27, 2014 at 11:15 am (6 years ago) So glad you tried these Ashley, and thanks for commenting! Glad to hear that reduced fat cream cheese worked- I wasn’t sure if the reduced fat would work without the extra fat, so I’m glad to hear yours turned out. I’m sure they were awesome with the white chocolate morsels! Reply Victoria July 22, 2014 at 10:51 am (6 years ago) These are ok….I would add more sugar next time as they’re very bland and not sweet at all… Reply faith July 22, 2014 at 9:37 pm (6 years ago) Thanks for your feedback Victoria! I found I enjoyed them less sweet but everyone has different tastes. Thanks for trying! Reply Cyria January 2, 2015 at 3:58 pm (5 years ago) girl…. I was just thinking “I wonder if I can make a peanut butter cup cheesecake cookie” I searched pinterest and this is the first recipe I saw! I am totally going to add mini chocolate chips to this recipe! Reply Michelle October 4, 2015 at 4:47 pm (5 years ago) Do you think this batter could be frozen before baking them? I’m trying to find cookie batter I can prepare then cook when it gets closer to Christmas. Reply faith April 29, 2016 at 10:34 pm (4 years ago) Yes, it freezes very well!
