Do you ever get lazy in the kitchen?
Boy, I do.
I get the incredible urge for cookies and I have all these fabulous recipes I want to try but the minute I think about pulling out that heavy Kitchenaid mixer – I think, nah.
If I can’t easily mix it up with the hand-mixer, I’ll just forgo them that day.
That’s why these cookies are just perfect!
Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 large egg
- ¼ cup of butter, softened
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 jar (16 oz) peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350°
In a large bowl, add all ingredients and mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Scoop out and roll into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Then make the classic peanut butter cookie indentations with a for – dip fork in white sugar before making each hatch mark..
Cook for around 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
**note: all ovens cook differently, so watch closely as cooking times may need to be adjusted.
Really, how simple is that?!
