  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Beat cream cheese, peanut butter and eggs in large bowl with mixer on low speed 1 min. Add dry cake mix; beat on medium speed 1 min. or until mixture pulls away from side of bowl and forms soft dough. (See Tip.)
  • Shape into 44 (1-inch) balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten each ball, in criss-cross pattern, with tines of fork dipped in sugar.
  • Bake 7 to 8 min. or just until edges of cookies are set. (Do not overbake.) Cool on baking sheet 2 min. Remove to wire rack; cool completely.

Note from the Kraft Kitchens

Thank you. We heard your feedback and retested the recipe. Based upon our results, we added another egg to soften the dough and make it easier to blend together. If you like an even softer dough, you can add a tablespoon of water to the prepared dough for easier handling.

Note from the Kraft Kitchens

If you want more peanut flavor, increase the peanut butter to 3/4 cup.

Special Extra

Add 1/2 cup chopped PLANTERS COCKTAIL Peanuts to dough before shaping into balls and baking as directed.

    I was disappointed in the flavor of these cookies, very bland no chocolate or peanut butter taste. They cooked up beautifully light and airy though. A good quality chocolate chip would enhance the flavor.

    This recipe is easy. Has simple ingredients and is a crowd pleaser. The dough was perfect for me it was not too thick or hard to work with. I even added peanut butter M&Ms. I could taste the peanut butter in the recipe. It was everything that it said it would be.
