Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Baking mix makes these soft, moist cookies a snap to stir-up, yet they're pretty enough for parties. "I'm often asked to bring them to wedding and baby showers, and they're popular around the holiday's, too. I sometimes mix the dough the day before and chill it until I have to bake the cookies."

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, milk, egg and vanilla; beat until smooth. Gradually stir in biscuit mix and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Shape into 1-in. balls and place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2009

I make these cookies every year for Christmas. It's not only a family favorite, but our friends can't get their fill of them either.

I never bothered to flatten them and they still turn out great. However, I top rack bake only as the bottoms tend to over brown.
