peanut butter cookie mix
This is THE BEST peanut butter cookie recipe EVER! People who just SEE them comment on them, not to mention the raves I receieve when people TRY them. You will RUIN this cookie if you make it ANY smaller than the recipe dictates. I roll the dough into balls about the size of golf balls. This makes for a very light and beautiful cookie, but the center is still moist and slightly chewy. If you are looking for a trendy, designer, questionably textured PB cookie recipe, do not bother with this recipe.
If you are looking for a big, thick, old fashioned, perfectly textured cookie that will have your husband and co-workers eyes lighting up when they see them for the first time...go right ahead and ENJOY the compliments!
Adam, THANK YOU so much! This is forver my PB cookie recipe!
These cookies were o.k. The list of ingredients was very long and they were time consuming to make. They tasted pretty good, but was looking for a better cookie. I actually found the perfect PB cookie recipe on the Betty Crocker website...they were fabulous. Crispy and chewy and just the right amount of peanut butter.
This recipe is delicious! The cookies are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, not to mention they look great. The recipe is kind of expensive to make because you have to buy a box mix as well, but the results are fabulous. The mix I bought did not have a separate package of peanut butter in it (as referenced in the recipe), so I simply added 1/4C more peanut butter, next time I might even try 1/2C). The cookies turn out beatifully. I rolled the cookies into 1 1/2" balls, and then pressed them with a fork. I was able to get 9 cookies per sheet, and the recipe made approximately 5 dozen. This recipe won't dissapoint you.
Every time I've made this recipe, it yields way more than it says it will. We entered "36 servings," printed and made the recipe, and ended up with over 170 cookies! These are great peanut butter cookies, but don't trust what it says about servings!
I don't believe the extra ingredients added anything to the package mix.
I have been using this site for years now and this is the first time I have rated any recipes. This peanut butter cookie recipe was great. I really loved it as did my family and friends. It made a ton of cookies. The only thing I did different was use a sugar cookie mix instead of the peanut butter one. I added extra peanut butter to the recipe and they were truly delicious. Thank you so much!!!!
These are the best peanut butter cookies I have ever had :) :).....these are a keeper. I made these for our holiday party and everybody just raved over them. I also put mini m&m's in a few (kid's like those the best).
I took them to work and people enjoyed them. It makes way more than 18 cookies, tho! I rolled the dough balls in sugar before I cross--hatched them.
