Cake Mix Snickerdoodle Cookies

Looking for quick and easy cookie recipes? These snickerdoodles are made with just 5 cheap ingredients including a box of Betty Crocker yellow cake mix, cinnamon, sugar, eggs and oil (NO butter or cream of tartar). They are so simple to make and incredibly tasty!


  • 1 box Betty Crocker yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon


  1. In a large bowl, combine the dry cake mix, eggs and oil until well incorporated.
  2. Refrigerate the dough for about an hour (optional but they won’t flatten as much if you chill the dough first).
  3. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar.
  5. Shape the dough into about two dozen 1 inch balls, then roll them around in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  6. Place the dough balls onto your baking sheets, giving them plenty of room to spread.
  7. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until done. Don’t over bake them! The cookies should still be very soft when you take them out of the oven.
