Make homemade cookies the new-fashioned way! Cake mix gives you a quick start.

Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
1/4
cup packed brown sugar
2
tablespoons water
1
cup creamy peanut butter
1/4
cup shortening or vegetable oil
2
eggs
Granulated sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F (350°F for dark or nonstick pans). In large bowl, beat cake mix, brown sugar, water, peanut butter, shortening and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  • 2 Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar and, on ungreased cookie sheet, place 2 inches apart. Flatten in crisscross pattern with fork dipped in sugar.

Expert Tips

Spread 1 to 2 teaspoons chocolate frosting between bottoms of two cookies and press lightly for Chocolate-Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies.

Give a new look to peanut butter cookies by pressing the bottom of a cut-crystal glass, metal meat tenderizer, potato masher or cookie stamp onto cookies before baking. Whichever one you use, be sure to dip it in sugar each time you press a cookie.
