It’s a cold, grey day outside. Today we’re tackling our gigantic pile of laundry. Days like today call for cookies. I have my hands full with the twins nursing through a growth spurt, so I’ve turned cookie duty over to my 12-year-old. She loves to bake. We use cake mix to make cookies quickly and with less mess.
She chose to make peanut butter cookies – a favorite in our house. Here’s our recipe:
Peanut Butter Cake Mix Cookies
- 1 box of yellow cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 350 and gather your ingredients.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. The dough will be thick. We most often will use our (clean) hands to work all the ingredients together into a dough.
Once you’ve made your cookie dough, pinch off ping pong size wads and roll into balls.
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and use a fork to press a criss-cross design onto your cookies.
Once you’ve filled your cookie sheet, sprinkle with sugar.
Bake cookies at 350 for 11 minutes.
We enjoy these served warm with a nice cold glass of milk.
