1 package (18.5 ounce size) yellow cake mix 1 cup creamy peanut butter 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 eggs 2 tablespoons water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Pour the dry cake mix into a large bowl. Make a well in the center. Add the peanut butter, oil, eggs, and water. Mix until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly using a fork dipped in water.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Let cookies cool on cookie sheet for 2 to 3 minutes before carefully removing from the cookie sheet to finish cooling on wire racks.
These are great! Fast and easy. Especially with last minute company company.

Where can you find 18.5 oz. cake mixes any more? Has anyone converted to the new weights?

I used 1/3 cup oil since people mentioned they get greasy. I think it might have to do with the brand of peanut butter you use though or maybe the cake mix. I think 1/2 cup would have been ok. They turned out good enough for what I was making them for.

Great cookies turned out fantastic, they do spread out a bit when baking.

Good recipe but reduce oil to 1/3 cup for better results, they're fluffier and less oily that way
SWEETPEE November 2, 2010 COMMENT: I give them a five star made them tonight for work tomorrow easy to make and taste even better I used chunky peanut butter loved them will make for the holidays
Florida mom September 26, 2010 REVIEW:
They turned out great. I modified it slightly, substituting applesauce in place of the veg oil, equalled portioned. They tasted very light, fluffy, cakelike a little, and by no means greasy. At all! A little more healthy way to enjoy this tasty treat! Try it! Mmmmm
WV Girl December 23, 2008 REVIEW:
Taste was great but they were extremely greasy. There was oil everywhere and they wouldn't hold together. I added flour and water to try to salvage the dough. I'm thinking the 'moist' dry cake mixes don't work very well with this recipe...

My son and I made these, except I didn't have a golden cake mix so we used a spice cake mix. They were terrific and easy to make. Next time, he wants to use a Devil's Food mix!
