Another Cake Mix Cookie Recipe!

You guys know how I love 'quick and easy' recipes - because as a Mom of three extremely busy kids and a house full of 'extra' teens here at any time, cookies go quickly and I always try to have something on hand for the kids. When it comes to cookies made with cake mixes, I've raved about them in the past as they are the closest thing to the 'copy cat' cookies everyone raves about at the local grocery store or Walmart. I think they definitely have a 'store bought' flavor as compared to completely homemade, but it's not a bad taste! As a matter of fact they are down right yummy! This is perhaps why we've already made the chocolate, white and lemon versions and today I'm going to bring you the peanut butter version! LOL.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

1 box devil's food cake mix
1 cup peanut butter
1/3 c water
2 eggs
1 cup peanut butter chips or chocolate chips (or a little of both!)

In a large bowl blend the cake mix, peanut butter, water and eggs. If you use a KitchenAid mixer, use the paddle attachment on the lowest speed. Otherwise, stir by hand. Stir in pb or chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased or parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake for 12 minutes (give or take a minute) depending on if you like them chewy or crisp. Remove, cool for 1-2 minutes on the cookie sheet and then remove to cool completely.Print Friendly and PDF
