John had meetings last weekend and I asked him if I could bake up some goodies for the guys who would be at his office. I included some of these marvelous cookies in gift bags as well as a platter for their meetings last Monday. They were extremely well received and John has already been called by a couple of them wanting the recipes for this cookie, and my Texas Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies, as well.
This cookie started off with my Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookie recipe. Then I decided to add chocolate chips and a box of Jello Cheesecake mix and see how the cookies would turn out. Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Peanut Butter Cookies have it all! Peanut butter, chocolate chips, and cheesecake! I loved the taste of these scrumptious cookies.
This is a great cookie for tailgating parties, afternoon snacks, holiday baking, potlucks or any kind of occasion. Chances are everyone who eats one of these jewels will love them! I know all the guys at John’s meeting did. Make up a batch and enjoy one or two or three for yourself.

These lovely crunchy peanut butter cookies are filled with chocolate chips and cheesecake flavor.
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Peanut Butter Cookies have marvelous texture and taste.
Here’s what I did.
Place peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, softened butter, eggs and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
Mix all ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add salt, baking soda, Jello cheesecake mix and hot water.
Mix with an electric mixer again to combine.
Stir in UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add chocolate chips.
Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Scoop dough with a 1/8 cup cookie scoop and place on prepared cookie sheets.
Bake cookies at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until done.
These are one of the best peanut butter cookies you’ll ever eat!
Each cookie is loaded with chocolate chips.
Chocolate, cheesecake, peanut butter, oh my!
