Quick Mix Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Who likes homemade cookies?

Me!

Who likes homemade cookies but doesn’t feel like baking them in the summer and would rather float around in the pool instead?

Umm, me again.

What to do?

Well, many times in the summer I rely on my No Bake Chocolate Cookies which are always a favorite homemade treat at our house that doesn’t require heating up an oven. But on this particular hot summer week I used my recipe for quick chocolate chip peanut butter cookies that stirs together just a little bit faster than some other homemade cookies.

The dough for these cookies has just four ingredients:  A can of sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter, vanilla extract, and Bisquick.  You then stir in a fifth ingredient (some chocolate chips) and your dough is ready to be baked.

So after I put forth this little bit of effort I had some delicious homemade cookies and still had time to float in the pool too.

{ or better yet, float in the pool AND eat cookies !!  }  And yes, that’s a thing you can do.  Here’s the proof.

I tested it out just to be sure because that’s what I do here on this blog.

Quick Mix Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 – 14 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk

  • 2/3 cup Creamy Peanut Butter

  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

  • 2 cups Bisquick Baking Mix (I use my Homemade Bisquick)

  • 3/4 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Empty the can of sweetened condensed milk into a large mixing bowl.  Add in the peanut butter and the vanilla extract and stir to mix them into the milk.  Add in the Bisquick and stir to mix everything together.  Finally, fold in the chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I use my hands a bit for this step too to make them kind of round and to keep the chocolate chips in there).

Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let them rest for a couple of minutes before removing them from the cookie sheet.  You can then transfer them to a wire rack for cooling – or – I just transfer mine to paper toweling laid out on my kitchen table.

Your finished product will be soft, chewy, bite-sized, yummy little cookie.

As noted above, I use my homemade Bisquick recipe  to make these cookies and it works great.  Although I haven’t tried it on this particular recipe yet, you can also make your own sweetened condensed milk – AND – you can make your own vanilla extract too!
