These Easy Peanut Butter Cookies are so tasty and you would never realize how easy they are to make. Great for a snack or lunchbox treat, these can be whipped up in minutes.
Did you know that it is National Peanut Butter Day in the United States? Now, I do not need much of an excuse to bake, so this was a good one as any. In celebration of this day, I am sharing a super easy Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe.
They are made from a cake mix, so it really is simple, but no one will know. This recipe is adapted from Allrecipes and I have been making them for years. The cake mix makes these cookies, well cake-like, so they are nice and light and filled with peanut butter goodness.
The cookies are always a hit and take very little time to make.
Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup peanut butter (I used creamy)
½ cup brown sugar, packed
¼ cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together ingredients until well combined. Roll dough into 1 inch balls onto a baking sheet.
Flatten cookies with fork. This is the best part isn't it? I mean, how can you not make the cute criss cross design on it?
It is nostalgic for me and reminds me of baking as a little girl with my mom. But I digress.
Bake for 12-14 minutes. Let cool.
My favorite way to eat these is with a glass a milk (to drink and to dunk in).
