My friend Brenda sent me a link to this recipe a couple weeks ago. I finally got around to whipping up a batch, man they are dangerously easy and so super awesome!
All you need is 4 simple ingredients that you probably already have in your house.
What you need,
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup mini chocolate chips (now I realize adding these makes this 5 ingredient peanut butter cookie but I really like chocolate chips!)
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with a silpat mat.
In a large bowl combine all the ingredients. Using an electric hand mixer beat until totally incorporated. Stir in the mini chocolate chips if you are using them.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on the prepared cookie sheet. Use a fork to cross hatch each cookie.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. I like my cookies a little crisp on the outside but always chewy in the middle so I did mine for 9-10 minutes.
Let the cookies cool on the pan for 4-5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store the cookies in an airtight container for 3 days or in the freezer for a month.
I took some of these cookies to work and they got rave reviews!
So if you NEED a cookie, whip up a batch of these super easy, really quick amazingly tasty cookies.
