Easy Peanut Butter Cookies (from a cake mix)

Hey there Sweet People - 

It's another easy recipe using a cake mix base...
and it's already become a favorite!

And it has only 4 ingredients!

How can you beat it?

These are great for an after dinner snack, bake sale or if you need
something quick to take to the neighbors! 

The kids can help mix them or make the crosshatch on top. 
I love recipes that you can mix by hand and don't need the mixer! 

Quick, easy and delicious - right up my alley!

Hope you enjoy soon....

1 (17 ozs.) box yellow cake mix 
2 eggs
1/2 c. oil
1 c. peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350*. 

In large bowl, combine eggs, oil and peanut butter until smooth. 
Add cake mix and stir until blended.  (If your cake mix is less than 17 ozs. I suggest adding 2 Tb. flour - or more yellow cake mix) 

With a cookie scoop or a large Tb. make balls of dough about the size of a walnut, placing on parchment (or silpat) lined cookie sheet. 

Dip a fork into some sugar and make criss crosses (cross hatch) on top of 
cookies.  Bake 10 minutes - allow to cool 1 - 2 minutes, removing
to cooling rack. 

Yield: About 2 dozen
