This recipe my favorite summer classic. It's quick and easy to make. It requires absolutely no kitchen skills so all of you who tend to be a klutz in the kitchen can easily make this in no time. This recipe is made from Duncan Hines cake mix that I stumbles across and ended up loving it! One Shabbas, I was sick of doing the same old Duncan Hines cake from the mix, so I did a little research and found a great recipe that takes the classic yellow cake mix and turns it into delicious snicker doodle cookies. They were a great hit! My family loved them and you will too! I'm a little tired of people trying my cakes and saying.... oh it's a mix? I mean I still worked hard to make it after all! This recipe now allows me to save time by providing me with all the dry ingredients and I actually take part of the cookie making itself!
Without further ado, the recipe:
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 pkg Yellow Cake Mix
2 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1. Preheat you're oven to 375 ºF and lay out a pan with baking sheets.
Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl and set aside.
Combine cake mix, eggs and oil in large bowl. Stir until well blended.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls, then roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place balls 2-inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten balls with bottom of glass or with your finger. It works just as well!
5. Bake at 375 ºF for 8 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool one minute on cookie sheets. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely. - Personally, I don't own a cooling rack so I just take them out of the pan and let them cool on a plate or some other non-hot surface. Remember, leaving them on the pan will allow them to bake more, even out of the oven, and you're cookies may become a bit too hard and crunchy. If that's what you like then go for it! If not, I highly recommend removing them onto a separate plate.
