on thursday, it was weirdly overcast and cool. i say weirdly because we've had a mini heat wave going on and the forecast was for 82. when i stepped out to put a donation bag of clothes into Eleanore aka Henrietta Hippo, i felt quite chilled.
baking was in order. cookie baking. peanut butter cookie baking...with a cake mix as i was feeling too lazy to pull out measuring cups and such.
*1 box white or yellow cake mix
*1 cup peanut butter
*1/4 c milk
*chocolate chips (optional)
preheat oven to 350 F. mix up ingredients and add yer chips.
drop by the spoonful onto your cookie sheet (the dough will be super sticky). sprinkle with a smidge of sugar and press the tines of a fork into the tops to create that peanut butter cookie look. you do not have to flatten or smoosh, they bake just fine as a puff ball and do not spread much at all.
bake 10-12 minutes, wait a smidge to cool and enjoy with a cold glass of your favorite milk beverage.
**i think next time i will add more peanut butter, salted peanuts and milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet and less of them at that.
