Today, I thought I’d share a recipe for the best snickerdoodles I’ve ever had-hands down. In fact they are probably my favorite cookie, if it’s possible to choose a favorite cookie. And they’re made from a cake mix!
Just dump a Betty Crocker Super Moist White or Vanilla cake mix into a bowl and add 2 eggs and a 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. Then mix with a spoon. No worries if the cake mix doesn’t get completely incorporated, it will as you roll it into balls-which is the next step.
After the balls are formed, roll them in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. For this batch, I did 1 t cinnamon and 1 T sugar. It was just enough! Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
And slide them into a preheated 350° oven. Let your toddler watch as the balls transform into perfectly puffy cracked cookies.
Eat them while still warm or place in an airtight container. They are best the next day. Super moist and super addicting.
