When I want something sweet but I'm not in the mood to do too much baking, I fall back onto Cake Mix Cookies. Say what you will about cake mixes, but I love them! They were on sale for $0.99 before Christmas so I picked up five boxes, knowing full well that half of them would be cookies and not cakes.  There are tonnes of recipes online for all sorts of cookies, bars, and fancier cakes - all made with a cake mix as the base. I enjoy the recipes from Duncan Hines, but you'll also find recipes at Betty Crocker and on allrecipes.com (my Mom even has two cookbooks, Cake Mix Magic and Cake Mix Magic 2).

Today's recipe comes from Duncan Hines, and it is for Snicker Doodles.


1 pkg Golden Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp cinnamon
3 tbs sugar

Preheat oven to 375°F and grease or line baking sheets.

Step 1.  Mix cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.      Set aside.

Step 2. Mix together cake mix, eggs, and oil.

Once mixed a dough should form.

Step 3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls.

Step 4. Roll the dough balls in cinnamon + sugar mixture so they are completely covered.

Step 5. Place sugar covered dough balls onto greased (or parchment paper lined) cookie sheet.  Flatten with the bottom of a drinking glass.

Step 6. Bake in 375°F oven for 9 minutes.

Step 7. Remove from oven and let sit one minute before transferring to wire rack to cool.  My batch made 27 cookies.  Enjoy!
Serving Suggestion: Snicker Doodles and your favourite tea.
