Gooey Butter Peanut Butter Cookies

What’s not to love about a cookie with butter in the name TWICE?!  That’s enough to make me say……YIPPEE!

My friends at SKIPPY®  recently asked if I would create a peanut butter cookie recipe for an ultimate peanut butter-filled holiday.  I’ll share with you how you can enter to win a lifetime supply of Skippy Peanut Butter or thousands of dollars a little later in this post.  I don’t know about you…..but that would totally make our holiday fun.

It’s no secret how much I LOVE all things gooey butter, and my husband practically bleeds peanut butter, so I thought I would make a Peanut Butter Gooey Butter Cookies, and it worked.

WHAT MAKES GOOEY BUTTER PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES SO DELICIOUS?!

In the past, I’ve made Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies, so this time I just swapped out the red velvet cake mix for a yellow cake mix and added 1 cup of SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter (I used their Roasted Honey Nut flavor) and it worked!

I love that this peanut butter cookies recipe produces a soft cookie, unlike most peanut butter cookies that are usually crispy.  Not that there is anything wrong with a nice crisp peanut butter cookie, but what I love most about this cake mix cookie is, how soft, delicate and almost cake-like it is.

I know they will make the perfect addition to our holiday cookie trays this year.

If these gooey butter peanut butter cookies don’t make you say YIPPEE I don’t know what will! 😉
