Easy Snickerdoodle Cookies

Do you need a quick and delicious cookie recipe?  This oldie but goodie from One Ash can help you out! 

Last night, I wanted an easy (but yummy) dessert to make. After digging around on places like Pinterest and Food.com, I finally found a perfect recipe. The only problem? I didn’t have all the ingredients I needed. Since I was pretty desperate, I made do and changed a few things. I’m glad I did, because these cookies came out marvelous! Check out the recipe for Easy Snickerdoodle Cookies below:


1 box of White Cake Mix
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup shortening
1 egg, beaten
1 Tbs sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

(makes about 50)


  1. Go ahead and preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Take out your cookie sheets and grease them. Set these aside.
  2. In a medium size mixing bowl, mix together the cake mix, butter, shortening and egg until a bread-like dough forms. Make sure all the ingredients are well blended. 
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Shape the dough into 1/2″ balls. 
  5. Roll the balls in the sugar and cinnamon mixture, making sure the entire thing is well covered.
  6. Before you put the cookies in the oven, take a fork and mash each ball down flat, creating the criss-cross pattern on top of the cookie.
  7. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  8. Let cool on wire racks for about 5 minutes.
  9. Enjoy with a nice big glass of milk (preferably raw!)
