Peanut Butter Autumn Spotlights

For all of you peanut butter lovers out there....

1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. water
2 eggs
1 c. Reeses pieces

Mix together all ingredients. Drop by rounded teaspoon on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 12 minutes until lightly golden brown. Yield: 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

Ashlee side note: as you all know, I'm not big into making individual cookies. I'm too lazy. So, I just plopped this dough into a 9x13 pan and baked them as cookie bars. The temperature is still the same, I just had to bake them longer. Check them after 15 minutes to see how much longer they will need. The key is to pull them out when you see that the edges have just started turning golden brown. Even though the cookies still look doughy, they still bake after you've pulled the pan out of the oven because the pan is still hot. Let the pan sit until completely cooled and then cut into bars.
These are the devil. They are really good. I dare you to just eat one. :0)
