As if we didn’t already have enough love for Bisquick™, here is another way to love this versatile baking mix! This great recipe for old fashioned chewy peanut butter cookies made with classic Bisquick™ is delicious and made with basic ingredients you usually keep on hand. It makes about 48 soft and chewy peanut butter cookies, perfect for sharing or freezing for later. Fun fact: This classic recipe was featured in an ad for Bisquick™ in 1950! It was called the Betty Crocker™ “1-2-3 Cooky” recipe and was promoted as “thrifty” because it only cost 5 ½ cents to make a dozen cookies.

Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, mix peanut butter and milk until smooth. Stir in Bisquick mix and vanilla until blended.
  • 2
    Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Roll tops in sugar. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls, sugar sides up, 2 inches apart. Flatten in crisscross pattern with fork dipped in additional sugar.
  • 3
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until centers are set and bottoms are light golden brown. Do not overbake. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool 15 minutes.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Add a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream to make peanut butter cookie ice cream sandwiches! Roll your sandwich in chocolate chips for an extra-delicious crunch.
  • tip 2
    Freeze any extras for later! Once cool, store cookies flat in a freezer-safe container. Use parchment paper between each layer of cookies. Use these within 2 months to enjoy them at their best.
  • tip 3
    Although this recipe is a classic, feel free to go against tradition when you flatten the cookies! Use the ridges of the bottom of an etched drinking glass or a cookie press instead of adding classic fork marks. Make sure you dip whatever you choose in sugar before lightly flattening each cookie.
