It's time to bake cookies with the Fill the Cookie Jar Baking Group! This month's theme is "Mother's Day". I thought a fast and easy recipe would be exactly what some busy moms might like to have on hand for a fast batch of cookies.
These cookies, made from a cake mix, are described as "the easiest, most delicious peanut butter cookies ever." They are one of the easiest, although I wouldn't go so far as to say they're the most delicious. They're very good, though, and the kids will enjoy helping.
Busy Day Peanut Butter Cookies Printable Recipe
Makes about 32 cookies
1 box yellow cake mix (I used one without pudding, just because it's what I had on hand)
1/2 cup oil
1 cup peanut butter (I used smooth)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. Empty cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, stir eggs, oil, and peanut butter until smooth and well-combined.
3. Stir peanut butter mixture into cake mix until completely mixed. Drop by tablespoon-fulls onto prepared cookie sheets. Make cross-hatch designs into the top of each cookie with a lightly floured fork, pressing to flatten cookie.
4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until just very slightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then remove cookies to wire rack to cool completely. Store tightly covered.
Cook's Notes: These cookies have a shortbread-type texture. Bake 9 to 10 minutes for a softer cookie, 10 to 11 minutes for a crisper cookie.
