Cake Mix Snickerdoodles

I love to bake!  However, sometimes after working all day, I just don't have the energy for baking.  I've discovered recipes using a cake mix as a base.  Cake mix recipes save time and are often just as delicious as those made from scratch.  

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.


  1. Great idea! My oldest grandson loves Snickerdoodles. They look just like regular cookie recipes.
