Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownies

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownies are a peanut butter lover’s delight. These lovely brownies start with a scrumptious peanut butter cookie dough for the crust layer. The crust layer is topped with a cheesecake layer and then more cookie dough is crumbled on top and sprinkled with peanut butter chips. Every bite is mouthwatering — especially if you enjoy peanut butter.

I have to admit I love peanut butter. Who doesn’t love a Peanut Butter Cookie? Especially when they’re made extra crunchy, or like whoopie pies, in brownies, with toffee & white chocolate, with M&M’s, or with oatmeal. All are scrumptious ways to enjoy peanut butter. Well, peanut butter works well with a cheesecake layer too!

A few weeks ago I was on a cheesecake brownie baking roll. I made M&M Cheesecake Brownies, Heath Toffee Cheesecake Brownies, Red Velvet Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownies, Creme de Menthe Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownies and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars along with about 7 others I’ve yet to publish. I enjoy baking cookies and brownies and these were prepared for John to give away to work friends. They all love getting cookies as gifts and we’re happy to supply them. 🙂

I started with my basic Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars recipe and swapped out peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips in the recipe. Voila! Another splendid brownie recipe. If you’re looking for an incredibly wonderful peanut butter brownie recipe, then Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownies needs to be on your list. After one bite, you will want another and another and another! 🙂

      Hi, Ann. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. When I converted my recipes to a new theme, some of the stuff got left off. I’ve trying to fix most of them but this was a recipe that got overlooked. I’ve changed the recipe card now so you should be able to get the ingredients. Thanks again.
