Cake Mix Snickerdoodles

I teach a Bible Study for women every Tuesday evening. We meet for dessert first so we can visit before we begin our class. I usually bake cookies for the group every week. Well, not just cookies but cake mix cookies! I have found great joy discovering new ways to create yummy cookies for my family, friends & people at church.

Last week, I noticed a recipe for Snickerdoodles on the box of Duncan Hines yellow cake mix. Snickerdoodles are one of my very, very favorite cookies but I never baked them. With this recipe, I will be baking them all the time. I am sharing the recipe below Use the Duncan Hines cake mix to make your Snickerdoodles. Other mixes then to make cookies that have a cake-like consistency. These look & taste like regular cookies. So easy. I like to impress people with my smarts as well as my talent in the kitchen. Nothing is smarter than finding a simpler way to do something!

The recipe says you should grease your cookie sheets. I always use parchment paper. It is fabulous! It allows me to make all my sheets of cookies while only having 2 actual cookie sheets! I was able to get 9 cookies on each sheet. You can flatten the cookies with the bottom of a glass. I didn’t. I like them looking rugged!
