There are some recipes for me that after tasting them, they just blow me away. You know, those recipes that are just life-changing because they are so good and you cannot believe you have waited so long to try it. So let me just start by saying that these cookies are SO good, and most definitely the best peanut butter cookies I have ever had. So good in fact that the most popular topic of conversation in our house this week has been these cookies. Ryan, who usually is happy to take my creations into work to share, flat out refused to let these leave the house because he had no intention of sharing them with anyone.
Let me fill you in on why these truly are the best peanut butter cookies ever. Not only are they delicious, they are SO easy! Only 4 ingredients! And one of those is a cake mix! Anyone can make these, even people who aren’t normally bakers. I truly think these would be impossible to mess up.
So let me tell you a little more about these cookies. They are super soft and chewy. They almost have a fudgy like texture in the middle. If you are looking for light and fluffy, these will not fit the bill. If you want thick and chewy and magical cookies, then you need to make these ASAP.

1 yellow cake mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or non stick baking mats.
Add all ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat the ingredients until smooth, for 1-2 minutes. Batter will be very thick. Roll 1 tbsp. of batter into a ball and place on cookie sheet. Using a fork, indent each cookie, in both directions.
Cook for 10 minutes for soft, fudgy cookies or 12 minutes for a crisper cookie.
