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

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

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...
