How to Make Snickerdoodle Cookies with Cake Mix
To start, add the cake mix, eggs, oil, 2 tsp of cinnamon, and vanilla into a large bowl and combine, then place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
Secondly, take the chilled dough out of the fridge.
Thirdly, set the oven to 350 degrees and use parchment paper to line a baking tray.
Next, add 2 tsp of cinnamon and the sugar into a small bowl and combine.
In addition, spoon the dough into your hands to make 1-inch balls, then roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat.
Furthermore, arrange the dough balls onto the prepared pan 2-inches apart. You can use a flat-bottom glass to gently press the dough balls down to create rounder cookies if desired.
To finish, bake the cookies in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until light brown. Make sure not to overbake.
Finally, take out of the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the pan slightly.
Serve warm and Enjoy!
