Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add the egg and beat until incorporated; then beat in the peanut butter until evenly mixed. Stir in the cake mix until just incorporated. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls, place onto ungreased baking sheets, and flatten with a fork.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, about 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

The cookies turned out great! I did tweak the recipe a bit though. It seemed a bit too dry, so I added an extra egg and about a teaspoon of water. Just for fun I added some M & Ms to some of the cookies, and they taste great! But they are great without too!!! :o)

The cookies tasted good but they were way too dry. If I ever make this recipe again I'll add a whole stick of butter and another egg but I don't think I'll bother to again.

I used butter the first time and found them a little too dry. I used vegetable oil instead of butter the next time. It was much better and the taste wasn't any different. I used to make a similiar cookie with smooth peanut butter on a much larger scale at a coffee shop in Las Vegas where I worked. It was always a big hit!

Easy recipe, good ingredients...two bits of a so so issue. #1 Very crumbly...very. Makes sure to really work each little ball smooth before placing it on the cookie sheet and pressing with a fork. I used a small scooper and my 1st tray was very crumbly when I picked them up while still warm & after they were cooled. Totally work the cookie dough good. And possibly add either 1/4 cup more butter OR an additional egg for better binding. #2 even though there was 1 small 18 jar of peanut butter to the batch...I thought it needed just a tad more possibly 1/2 cup more. That's just me. But other then that.

I thought it was great just the way it is written. I did not have the dryness problem others mentioned but will keep it in mind when I make them again.
