These Snickerdoodles were no exception, in fact, they may be better than some scratch recipes I've tried. The original recipe calls for a white cake mix. I used a yellow cake mix, the only difference I think is the color. If you're looking for a quick cookie recipe or one to make with the kids or grandkids, give this one a try!
Cake Mix Snickerdoodles (Recipe courtesy of Betty Crocker)
- 1 white cake mix (I used yellow)
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheets). Mix cake mix, butter and egg in large bowl with spoon until dough forms (some dry mix will remain).
- 2 Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Mix sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
- 3 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
