Snickerdoodles – The easiest recipe ever!

Are you looking for a fun treat for your Valentine?  I made these with the kids the other day for the first time and they loved them!  This cookie is definitely not your traditional snickerdoodle, but they are so easy and the kids will think they are great!  The recipe is from the Gooseberry Patch Quick and Easy


1 18 1/4 oz pkg yellow cake mix

2 eggs

1/4c oil

1 1/2 t. cinnamon

1/2 c sugar

Mix the cake mix, the eggs, and oil together.  I mixed in my Kitchen-Aid mixer, but I think you could probably just mix it by hand.  It will not look like cake batter…it will be more doughy.  Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and dip in cinnamon and sugar mixture.  This would make a great Valentine’s treat if you had pink or purple colored sugar!  Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. 

 The recipe makes 2.5-3.5 dozen depending on the size of the cookie.

It is no secret we love to cook together as a family.  As soon as I head to the kitchen my kids grab the dining room chairs to join me!  See another one of our favorite recipes to make together, Chex Caramel Corn.  Do you have a favorite recipe to make with your kids?
