This is the easiest cookie recipe yet. It is perfect for those times you crave a chocolate peanut butter treat, but maybe don't have all of the ingredients for a totally homemade recipe. This recipe only needs 4 ingredients.


I used a triple chocolate fudge cake mix, but you can use whatever chocolate flavor you prefer! 



1 box of chocolate cake mix

1 cup of peanut butter

1 egg


¼ c water


¼ c granulated sugar for rolling



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray lightly cooking spray. 



Combine the cake mix, peanut butter, water and egg in a mixing bowl.

Use a hand or stand mixer to combine.

Blend for 3 minutes.



Form small balls of dough and roll them in the sugar.



Place the cookie balls 3” apart on a prepared baking sheet.

With a fork, press into the balls of dough to flatten them.



Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges look lightly crackled.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the cookie sheet.

Makes 2 dozen cookies.




This is the recipe I pull out when I have not been shopping and find myself out of an ingredient I might need for cookies, or when I just simply don't want to fuss with too many ingredients.



These have a great texture and a lot of great peanut butter flavor! You are sure to love them.

Pie Crust Cookies

If you need a treat in a flash that is low in sugar but packed with buttery flavor, this pie crust cookie recipe is one that you will want to check out!






When I was a kid, sometimes my grandma would bake a pie. That was always nice, but the true treat was her pie crust. After she trimmed her crust to fit her pie plate, she would sprinkle to excess with cinnamon and sugar and bake it up. She called it cracklins and let me tell you, this is the flavor that I reminisce on as an adult.
The only bad part about cracklins was how few and far between they were! 

A few months ago, my kids were begging for treats, so I stood in my kitchen surveying the options. We were low on baking supplies, but my mind wandered back to this simple treat for childhood. I decided I would just make a pie crust and make something fantastic.


While at first, my family was skeptical that pie crust cookies could actually be good, now they beg me to make these at least once a month! The recipe is similar to a shortbread, it is so easy to make that anyone could make these!
Ingredients
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 cup of chilled butter
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of ice water
1/4 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water, a tablespoon at a time, until mixture forms a ball.
Roll dough out until it is about 1/8 of an inch thick
Sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar and slice into chunks, strips, wedges, whatever!
 Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

S'mores Cookie Recipe

Last week I had the urge to bake. I browsed through my favorite recipes and had that feeling that I have made all of this stuff a hundred times... I promised Roo I would have cookies for him when he came home from school, so I started browsing recipes I hadn't tried before. I stumbled across this recipe for S'mores Cookies and decided to give it a whirl. I am so glad I did!

These cookies are addictive. They are sweet, have gooey spots and are sure to please even the toughest cookie critic!

So yummy I had to sneak a bite before photographing!

Ingredients

1 ½ cup flour
1 ½ cup finely crushed graham crackers
¼ tsp baking powder
½ lb butter
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup white sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups chocolate chips
1¼ cup mini marshmallows

Directions

Put marshmallows and 1/2 of the chocolate chips on a plate and set aside.

Cream the butter and sugars until well combined.

Add eggs and vanilla extract and beat well. 

Stir in  half of the chocolate chips.

Add dry ingredients mix until combined.

Drop two ounce cookies onto ungreased baking sheet and bake in 350 degree oven for seven minutes.

Take cookie sheet out of oven and press three marshmallows and three chocolate chips into each cookie.

Return to oven and bake for an additional two minutes or until marshmallows are melty.

Remove from oven and allow to cool.

These S'mores Cookies were a big hit with my family! My son said "Mommy? You made these?" Like he couldn't believe I tried a new cookie recipe! It was so cute!

These are now going into the group of favorite recipes to bake! I know we will whip up another batch of these very soon! They were incredibly easy to make; the hardest part was pressing the marshmallows and chocolate chips into the cookies during the baking process!
