When it comes to simple cookie recipes, this one can't be beat. Start with cake mix and in a few easy steps, end up with a freshly baked batch of Snickerdoodles!

Makes: 2 1/2 dozen cookies

Cooking Time: 10 min   
What You'll Need:
    2 tablespoons sugar   
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon   
    1 (18-1/4-ounce) package white cake mix (see Note)   
    1 stick butter, melted   
    1 egg   
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What To Do:
    - Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix together sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
    - In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, butter, egg, and vanilla with a spoon until dough forms. (Some dry mix will remain.) Shape dough into 1-inch balls.
    - Roll balls in sugar mixture, then place about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
    - Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until set. Remove from baking sheets to cooling racks.

Notes: We tested this recipe with both the 18.25 ounce box as well as a 15.25 ounce box of cake mix and both batches of cookies came out the same. Either size box will work for this recipe.
