This recipe for Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pudding Cookies is the only peanut butter cookie recipe you'll ever need!!

A FEW THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

  • Unlike traditional peanut butter cookies, I prefer to not press these down with the traditional criss-cross imprint before baking. I like leaving them thick and puffy! However, I do like to give them a gentle press with the back of a spoon when they come out of the oven. I can't resist the crackly edges it creates!
  • You can press them down before baking if you'd rather.
  • If you don't have cheesecake flavored pudding mix, it's no big deal. You can definitely just use vanilla. Butterscotch is good too (but it will definitely change the flavor, FYI).
  • Our family traditionally dips these in chocolate. But that's optional (but not really ????).
