A New Twist on an Old Favorite

This recipe came in an e-newsletter from one of our printers at work of all places. I've tried a similar type of recipe using a spice cake mix and can of pumpkin pie filling. These Snickerdoodles sound easy and delicious!

Twisted Snickerdoodle Cookies

1 package white or yellow cake mix (Can double recipe and use one of each)
1/4 cup vegetable oil (or 1/4 cup applesauce)
2 eggs
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 350. Mix cake mix, oil and eggs in large bowl with spoon until dough forms. Some dry mix will remain.

Refrigerate for an hour so it is easier to roll into balls. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Mix sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 10 - 12 minutes or until set. Cookies will be light golden brown. Do not overbake or they will be hard. Cool on wire rack.
