These are incredibly chewy cookies!

I'm so curious if there was a forgotten ingredient... or if this is just a really strange recipe. There is no liquid and the batter is just way too dry. I was tempted to add oil or butter, but decided I'd try it as-is first. I thought it wasn't going to work at all, but they do squish up into balls (the cream cheese and PB make it stick together) and they taste alright. But if I make this again, I'll play around with adding some sort of fat/liquid. The good news was: they did the trick for my 3 year old who was requesting a baking project that involved chocolate!
