I made snickerdoodle cookies. I cheated. I used cake mix. It took me less than 20 minutes. It’s semi-homemade. I fooled my boyfriend into thinking I took forever. It worked. And now he’s in love with me. I am a genius :)
Me, a genius? Noooo! Me, lazy…yes.
After a Google search for snickerdoodles, I somehow landed on Betty Crocker’s website. Hmm reminiscent of November 2011, haha. If I said it already, I’m saying it again…Betty Crocker is a genius! I love the idea of incorporating cake mix because (a) cookie making time is cut in half; (b) no need to measure out ingredients; (c) super affordable; and (d) everything that you need is already in the box. Now I can understand why crazy couponers love to have a stockpile of cake mixes :)
Check out how to make your own snickerdoodles from cake mix…
First things first, always preheat that oven! Preheat oven to 350° F.
For the cinnamon-sugar mixture…
Bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes…
Easy as cake!! No pun intended… A plate of delicious semi-homemade snickerdoodles in less than 20 minutes!
Will you be giving cake mix cookies a try? Or are you in love with this idea and you plan on sharing more semi-homemade recipes using cake mix with me??? :)
