Posted by  ·  October 15, 2017  ·  Last Updated: October 18, 2017

Make these Easy Peanut Butter Cookies in less time than it would take to go to the store to pick up something.  They are even gluten free!  Chances are you have everything you need already in your pantry.  Cake Mix cookies are another quick cookie recipe.  I especially love these Snickerdoodle Cookies and Easy Sugar Cookies. These Double Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies make the best homemade ice cream sandwiches ever. I promise!

Did I mention these yummy cookies are also gluten free? I always like to have recipe that I can whip up at a moments notice.  It is nice to have an easy recipe for my gluten free friends.  My favorite allergy free treat are homemade peppermint patties. They are amazing!

I like my cookies soft and chewy. If you like soft cookies too, make sure you don’t over bake these.I hope you enjoy them them as much as we do!

I have more quick and easy cookie recipes. You don’t even have to turn on the  oven to make these Peanut Butter and Corn Chip cookies. Beware this delicious mixture is addictive! Chocolate No-Bake cookies are another favorite at my house!

What cookies do you make when you are short on time?
