Snickerdoodle cake mix cookies recipe

Sometimes you just don’t have time to make cookies from scratch. Ok… maybe I’m just lazy, but sometimes I just want it to be easier. My husband loves fresh baked cookies, and he really wanted snickerdoodle cookies, his favorite.

However, I lost track of time and when I noticed it was already 10 and I hadn’t made the cookies, I didn’t have energy to make any from scratch. I saw I had a yellow cake mix and decided to make a cake mix version.

The results? The cookies were a huge success and everyone loved them!

Roll it around slightly in the cinnamon sugar coating and place them on a cookie sheet.

Continue to do this until your cookie sheet is full.

Take the bottom of a glass to slightly flatten them out.

Bake for 8 – 10 minutes until they starting to brown.

Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before moving them.

Tip: 

I highly recommend using a cookie scoop. You will thank me later because it saves so much time on spooning out the cookies.

Plus, they are not expensive. Amazon has some cookie scoops for very cheap.

I also think they look more uniform when you use a cookie scoop.
