In our house, cookies are high on the list of favorite sweets. While I’m a cake girl, I won’t turn down a fresh-baked cookie! In recent years I’ve actually fallen in love with making cookies at home too.

HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES USING BISQUICK
You can find different variations on this peanut butter cookie recipe. Some use condensed milk and make them without eggs. I prefer to make Bisquick peanut butter cookies without condensed milk and to use an egg and butter.
To make these Bisquick cookies you’ll need:
- Brown Sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Peanut Butter
This recipe makes 2 dozen cookies and can be prepped and baked in about 20 minutes! Talk about easy!
Oh, and you don’t have to chill the dough which is a huge time saver!
Full ingredient measurements can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
CAN I MAKE BISQUICK PEANUT BUTTER BLOSSOMS?
You can use this recipe to make classic peanut butter cookies or peanut butter blossom cookies!
They both taste great and are easy to make! If you want to make Peanut Butter Blossoms, you’ll need some Hershey’s Kisses in addition to the rest of the ingredients.
You’ll need one piece of chocolate for each cookie. Put them in the freezer while you make the cookies to help prevent them from melting when you put them on the warm cookies.
If you’re making peanut butter blossom cookies, keep them in the ball shape when you put them on the baking sheet. You do not need to press them flat before baking. Let the cookie balls bake and when you remove them from the oven, press a Hershey’s Kiss on the top of each cookie to flatten them a bit.
PANCAKE MIX PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
If you’re wondering if everyone will know you made cookies made with pancake mix, don’t worry at all! These cookies taste as good as any other cookies made from scratch! Everyone will be thrilled to learn your secret if you decide to share it!
To get started, heat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Beat the butter, brown sugar, and sugar together in a mixing bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Then add the egg and vanilla extract to the mixture. Beat it together until the ingredients are well mixed.
Add Bisquick to the mixture and mix on LOW until just combined.
Mix in the peanut butter.
Then use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop rounded balls of dough onto the baking sheet.
*If you want your peanut butter cookies to be covered in sugar (as some people prefer), roll the balls of dough in sugar before placing on the baking sheet.
Press each cookie flat with the tines of a fork using a criss-cross pattern.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the bottoms of the cookies are golden brown but the tops are still soft for a classic, soft, chewy cookie.
Take out of the oven and allow to cool on the pan for 5 minutes. Then move the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
HOW LONG DO PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES LAST?
You can store these cookies in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
WHY DO PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES HAVE FORK MARKS?
Peanut butter cookie dough is pretty dense dough. Using a fork to press the dough helps flatten it and helps it cook more evenly.
CAN I USE CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER IN COOKIES?
Absolutely! Substitute the same amount of crunchy peanut butter for the creamy peanut butter in this recipe.
CAN I MAKE GLUTEN-FREE BISQUICK COOKIES?
Yes! It’s super easy. To make gluten-free Bisquick Peanut Butter Cookies, simply substitute gluten-free Bisquick mix in the recipe.
I look forward to sharing more of my favorite Bisquick cookie recipes with you! Yes, you can probably make your favorite cookies using Bisquick mix!
