Thick and Soft Snickerdoodles

OMG!  It's not easy to have a perfect tasting cookie and be simple on top of it all!  But this has to take the cake, in fact it's made with Cake Mix!  Yep, I said it Cake Mix!  They are one of those cookies that you're like No way, you make it with cake mix!  That was what I thought when I made them.  

We all love them and they go fast so I suggest doing a few batches.  It's a buttery, sugary and cinnamon goodness.  The cinnamon and sugar on the outside creates a great crust with a yummy soft goodness inside!  A comfort cookie!  You have to make these!  So yummy!

I'm in love!

Thick & Soft Snickerdoodles
1 package Classic Yellow Cake Mix
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil

3 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350ºF.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Combine 3 Tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon in small bowl, set aside.

Combine cake mix, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, eggs and oil in large bowl. Stir until well blended.

*My daughter was awesome at mixing!

Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Place balls 2-inches apart on cookie sheets.

*That's powdered sugar from cookies I made right before the Snickerdoodles! =)

Bake at 350ºF for 8 to 9 minutes or until set and look crackled on top.

Cool one minute on cookie sheets. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely.

Here they are about to be hidden from the cookie monsters in my house.
Powdered Sugar gets everywhere!

Sugar & Spice and Everything Nice,
