Peanut Butter Cheesecake Cookie Bars

Are you a TV or a movie person? And what does that say about who you really are? (I’m getting deep today, folks.)

I, myself, am a TV person. Ask any of my friends or family, and they’ll tell you this immediately. It’s not that I don’t like movies, but they just end so fast. Yeah, yeah, there’s the whole story arc and it all ties up neatly, but I want MORE, and that’s where TV really pulls through. Episode after episode keeps me quite content.

I have a wide range of TV tastes, too. I don’t limit myself to one genre. I like award-winning, thought-provoking series as much as the next critic, but I also love me some trashy reality TV (not too terribly trashy, mind you).

When someone asks me what TV shows I watch, I clam up. This seemingly harmless question actually feels quite revealing. What will they think of me now that they know? Will they like me more or dismiss me altogether? Hence, the clamming.

Anyone else find themselves in this predicament?

Now, what does this Peanut Butter Cheesecake Cookie Bars recipe say about me? It says, I like peanut butter. I like cheesecake. I like cookies. I like over-the-top combinations. I’m OK with this recipe saying all that. More than OK, actually. They’re legit, over-the-top cookie bars. Enjoy!
