Quotes and Cookies!!

Hello Dear Friends!

At 9:00 tonight, as I was winding up my day of drawing.....

working on taxes (not very creative!).......

and watching our little sweeties for a couple hours.....

my 18-year-old son mentioned the cookies that I had promised to bake him today.  I LOVE cookies and was pleased to have an excuse to whip up his favorite, super easy, super good peanut butter cookies!
I also love quotes....one of my favorites is:

"A Recipe not shared, is soon forgotten."             

So, I thought that as I was baking, I would share this great recipe with you (for when you are craving cookies at 9:00pm.)  They really are wonderful and soooooo easy.  

Ingredients:  1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
                    2 large eggs
                    1/3 cup milk
                    1 (18.25 oz.) package yellow cake mix
                    1/3 cup granulated sugar

(That's it!  These are all the ingredients!  I just pick up a yellow cake mix whenever they are on sale.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Position oven rack in the middle of your oven and spray cookie sheet
with cooking spray.

Mix peanut butter, eggs, milk and 1/2 of cake mix in large mixing bowl.  (Don't add the sugar!)

Mix in remaining cake mix until blended.  Dough will be very stiff.

Place sugar in shallow dish.  Drop dough by tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet.  

Dip fork into sugar and gently press crisscross pattern on top of each cookie.

Bake 10-12 minutes until set and edges are barely golden brown.  Don't overbake though! Our family loves soft cookies and everyone makes sure that I don't get distracted when the cookies are in the oven!

They are definitely best when still warm!  

Let me know if you try this recipe!  We will have a drawing next Wednesday for anyone
who trys it and leaves me a comment about what they think.
I'll let you know what the prize is tomorrow.....
It's late and I'm ready for a cookie!
