Cake Mix Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipe by Brad 007
READY IN: 22mins
YIELD: 36 cookies


  • 1
    (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 1
    cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky. JIF brand is good)
  • 14
    cup vegetable oil
  • 3
    tablespoons water


  • Turn oven on to 350°F.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Dump all ingredients into a bowl.
  • Get mixer out and mix it until it is mixed up good. It will look kinda grainy, but feel oily.
  • If you haven't washed your hands yet, now would be a good time to do it.
  • After it is mixed up good,grab enough out to make about a 1 inch ball in your hand and roll it around in your hand like you did with Play-Doh when you were a kid.
  • Place the balls about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Get a fork and use the tines to make a criss cross pattern on each ball by gently pressing down on the ball 2 times. Once for each direction.
  • Place in oven and bake for 8~12 minutes.
  • Remember that the shorter the baking time, the softer the cookie. 8 minutes would be the minimum though (unless you have a one of those fancy convection ovens).
