  • 1 cake mix box ( 15 oz - 432 g) (I used yellow cake)
  • 1 cup (250 g) peanut butter (see notes for substitute)
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) unsalted butter, softened (1 stick)


  • Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed all ingredients until everything is well incorporated, about 3 minutes.
  • Form a disk and place the dough between two pieces of parchment paper. Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Remove dough from the refrigerator. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place the cut cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for 15 more minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F (180º C).
  • Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly brown. Remove from oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes. Then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
  • When cookies are completely cool, decorate to your taste. I decorated them as a ghost. I used white and black cookie icing and edibles little eyes.


STORE cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. 
MAKE AHEAD: You can make the cookie dough and chill it in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. 
GLUTEN-FREE: Use a Gluten-Free cake mix.
DAIRY-FREE: Use your favorite plant-based, dairy-free, or vegan butter. My favorite dairy-free butter brands for baking are:
NUT-FREE: Use a peanut-free spread. I like WOWBUTTER  and Field Trip Chickpea Butter.
