The best cinnamon cookie ever - SNICKERDOODLES!!!

Yeah you can totally make snicker doodles out of cake box cookies.

1box Yellow or white cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 oil
mix well, make cookie balls and flatten with a glass dipped in cinnamon sugar. They bake better on parchment- no sticking either.
Bake 350° until puffy and crackly looking. Take out before edges turn golden brown.
They stay soft and chewy.

I don't think I've ever had snickerdoodles. Do they have a strong cinnamon taste?

these turn out like a soft chewy buttery sugar cookie with a cinnamon sugar top. Very good... so good you won't have any left over thumbs_up.gif

How much sugar and how much cinnamon in the sugar/cinnamon mixture?

sadsmile Posted 15 Jan 2010 , 2:36am

Make up like 1/4 cup of sugar in a dish and a few sprinkles of cinnamon like 1/2 tsp- 1tsp

Can I add some extra cinnamon to the boxed cake mix? Or will that be too much?

I wouldn't add more then just a sprinkle. You mean you haven't baked them yet...? They are so easy you could be eating them by now. icon_wink.gif Ha ha

emccle Posted 15 Jan 2010 , 3:03am

sadsmile, you're funny! I just found a box of white cake mix in my cupboard, but it's past my bedtime icon_sad.gif , so I'll be baking in the morning. Thanks for your help!

bonniebakes Posted 15 Jan 2010 , 4:34pm

I add more cinnamon in my cinnamon-sugar ratio... I just like a really "cinnamony" taste.

I also add a few dashes to the dough when I'm mixing it.

sadsmile Posted 16 Jan 2010 , 12:48am

Nothing yet...? Or did you guys eat them all and are afraid to come in and tell on yourselves?

Kims_cakes Posted 16 Jan 2010 , 12:54am

I'm going to have to try Sadsmile's version. So easy, thanks for the tip!

Here they are fresh out of the oven and the house smells heavenly!

I know you said it was not your recipe but thanks for posting it.

I haven't baked anything since my accident, and am feeling a little sore but it was soooooo worth it!

sadsmile Posted 16 Jan 2010 , 3:05am

I hope you get to feeling better soon!


Yes they smell amazing... but you didn't taste them yet? icon_rolleyes.gif

G_Cakes Posted 16 Jan 2010 , 3:08am

Here is a recipe that I got off of Food Network. I was going to make some for the Holidays but I didn't get a chance so I don't know how they taste. The recipe sounds like a good one, though. I do hear that snickerdoodles are super YUM!

sadsmile Posted 16 Jan 2010 , 3:09am

Oh I see you stopped to take a pic... nice!

G_Cakes Posted 16 Jan 2010 , 3:21am

Yes I did, first batch is gone and second batch is cooling and the gentle hum of my kitchen aid is buzzing in the background with the next batch icon_smile.gif

They are so delish! Enjoying it right now with a hot cup of tea icon_smile.gif

thanks for the recovery wishes, I hope so too, but nothing like a little baking to lift the spirits up icon_smile.gif

sadsmile Posted 16 Jan 2010 , 3:25am

LOL that's the spirit! Nothing like hot fresh chewy cookies!

Hey I made some snickerdoodle cupcakes today - YUM!!! Found a recipe on a blog called Alpineberry. http://alpineberry.blogspot.com/

I just made my regular buttercream and added about 2 T. of cinnamon and it made a wonderful cinnamon icing for these little gems.

G_Cakes Posted 16 Jan 2010 , 7:17pm

Thank you for posting the info about alpineberry.bolgspot.com! I went on her site and the snickerdoodle cupcake and many of her other recipes sound delish. I want to make some of them for a group that I bake for. A baker can never have too many recipes...especially since I don't want their taste buds to get bored with my tried and trues icon_wink.gif

dandelion56602 Posted 17 Jan 2010 , 6:11am

G, when you feel up to it....make these! They ARE to die for! And don't blame me when you each the entire batch! But I would suggest freezing some so you'll have some when you get a craving icon_smile.gif

I second this post! Heavenly cookies thumbs_up.gif

emccle Posted 17 Jan 2010 , 1:58pm

sadsmile, my daughter (the one with the cinnamon craving) LOVED the cookies, and her boyfriend loved the cookies so much that he proposed to her! (well, he was going to propose that evening anyway, but I like to think it was the cookies that did it). Thank you again for an easy delicious recipe. thumbs_up.gif
