Worked with a lady who brought in cookies to work.
One batch, cake mix cookies, the other batch, ''chocolate peanut butter no bakes''.
She jotted down the recipe for me from memory. They were pretty good. She did say she is not a chocolate lover and prefers it when she makes these without the cocoa powder. Said to make same way only don't use the cp.
I haven't made them yet, but tomorrow I just may.

"Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bakes"
1 stick softened butter
1/2 c white sugar
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c coffee cream or 1/2 & 1/2
1/4 t salt
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 T quality cocoa powder
1 t vanilla
3 c oats

In saucepan, put butter, cream, sugars and salt. Cook until boils, boil at hard boil for 1 minute. Take off heat. Stir in peanut butter and cocoa, vanilla and oats, stirring to blend well and *quickly drop flattened golf ball size patties onto buttered wax paper. will harden up in 1/2 hour. store in plastic container with a lid and put in frig until eaten. She said you have to incorporate the ingredients quickly or they can become crumbly and won't hold shape.

I haven't made cookies in awhile, this sounds good enough to make the effort.

LC61, I agree, no reason to heat up the kitchen and you still come out with cookies to munch on. I should say this too, management kept asking where she was with her cookies, in other words, they wanted more, always a good sign, or else they were just hungry for sugar

It's not so much the heat , it is lack of energy to do anything.

Been a long dry spell on this thread. I posted this over in "What are you baking today," then thought it should get in here also in case someone likes my concoction.

Baked a batch of Oatmeal-Raisin-Walnut-Date cake cookies. Yummo!!!! Made them with Giant Eagle (store brand) Butter Deluxe cake mix. Always on sale for 10 boxes for $10. Added the 2T of water and liked the consistency of the batter much better than without. The oatmeal really consumes the moisture and I added water until I was happy with the mix.

INGREDIENTS:

1 ea. 18.5 oz package Giant Eagle brand (store brand) Ultra Moist Butter Deluxe cake mix (Can also use Duncan Hines Butter Deluxe)
1/2 Cup vegetable oil
2 Eggs – well beaten
2 T Warm water
1/2 Cup oatmeal flakes (any brand)
1/2 Cup raisins (white or red)

Optional:

1/2 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 Cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 Cup chopped dates

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine cake mix, eggs water and oil until smooth. Blend in remaining ingredients until thoroughly mixed. Batter will be a little stiff, but don't be concerned with that.

Drop a slightly rounded teaspoonful of batter 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until slightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies using teaspoon, or 3 dozen using a tablespoon.




Joe

Those sound great, Joe. Perfect for fall. You said "yum" in your description, so they must've tasted pretty good. They look super. Next time you make them, you might want to try a touch of cinnamon. I need to try these soon. Thanks for sharing.

Joe,

They look great. One questions though, bake for how long at what temperature?
