Sweet & Savory ~~ Kids Love to Bake!

Do you have kiddos or grandkiddos who like to bake?  If so, this is a real easy recipe for them to try. Grab those aprons, and bake on!

  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Dash of salt, optional
  • 1 cup chunk style or plain peanut butter
  • 1 pkg. any brand of yellow cake mix (I used Pillsbury)

  • Place water, eggs, vanilla, salt, peanut butter, and 1/2 pkg. of cake mix inside a large bowl.
  • Mix with mixer or spoon until well blended.
  • Fold in remaining half of cake mix until thoroughly blended.
  • Roll dough into shapes the size of walnuts and place on ungreased baking sheet.
  • Dip fork in flour and flatten the dough by making a criss-cross pattern on the top of each cookie.
  • Bake in 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • The cookies will set up a little bit after you remove them from the oven, so don't overbake them.
  • Cool cookies on a cooling rack.
  • Yields approximately 3-4 dozen cookies.

  • If the kiddos or grandkiddos would enjoy making peanut butter and jelly cookies, do not make criss-cross pattern in the dough.  Dip a teaspoon in flour and make a depression in the ball of dough. Fill with approximately 1/2 tsp. of your favorite jam or jelly.
  • Serve with milk, juice, or hot chocolate.
  • If you have a relative or neighbor who can no longer bake, share a few with them!

Happy Baking & Enjoy!
