Happy Monday! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. It was nice here, a little chilly for May, but nice. I know all too soon it will be hot, hot, hot. Hoping we can get out into the garden in a few days to start planting, but not until the threat of frost is gone at night. Today I'm sharing a recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies that starts out with a cake mix. I bake a lot. And not just for my family. Most of the time I'm baking for football games, track meets, fundraisers, etc, and every Monday I bake for our church's Community Outreach Meal. So I'm always looking for easy and delicious recipes and I love the idea of making cookies from a cake mix.
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1 cup peanut butter
In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, oil and peanut butter until well combined.
Add the cake mix until completely combined.
Using a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon, place the cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Using a fork, slightly floured, press the fork into each cookie to form the "cross hatch" design.
Bake in a 350 preheated degree oven for 10 minutes or just until they are slightly browned.
I've been making a very similar recipe for years now only adding chocolate chips and making them as bar cookies. You can find the recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars HERE...
AND another recipe that uses a cake mix is Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. You can get this recipe HERE...
