Brownie Cheesecake Cookies


These cookies are a take off of a recipe from Something Swanky, again.  Seriously, I love that blog.  So many goodies to bake.  Ashton’s post was just for regular cheesecake cookies.  Which I also made, and they were amazingly good.  Then I got this bright idea to switch out a little of the flour for cocoa powder.  The result… super chocolately yummy-ness!

I have also made these cookies, adding peanut butter for part of the butter and cream cheese, also amazing.  I have made them with m&ms, peanut butter chips.. You name it. I’ve probably done it.  They are seriously delicious.

Tonight I helped at the Elks for a flag day ceremony and a free supper for veterans and their families.  I made a Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie that was gone before I knew it! I’ve already had requests to make it again, because someone didn’t get a piece before it was gone! So that will be showing up here soon.
