  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Stir together the flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and applesauce. Blend in the dry ingredients to form a dough. Fold in the peanut butter chips by hand. Drop the dough by teaspoons two inches apart on a ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Very good cookies. Will try with a little mashed bananas next time. Know that these cookies do not spread so flatten them a bit before baking or you end up with big cookie mounds!

Exceptional! The cookies are so soft and chewy. I think that 2 cups of flour would do, as the dough was almost crumbly with 2.5 cups. Still delicious!

if i could give this 0 stars i would; i am 17 and i love to bake so i tried the cream cheese instead...people in my house were so disappointed you cant even taste the chocolate only peanut butt...
