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.

Lashanda Member since: September 28, 2013 REVIEW: 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.

Guest Foodie REVIEW: Good recipe but reduce oil to 1/3 cup for better results, they're fluffier and less oily that way

Florida mom 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 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...
