Cake Mix Snickerdoodles

These cookies are so quick and delicious!  Chicken Legs wanted something sweet last night, and I didn't want to spend a lot of time making something.  I found this recipe on a box of cake mix and decided to give them a try.  They only took a few minutes to make and they tasted yummy!  The cookies were soft on the inside with a little crunch on the outside from the cinnamon sugar mixture.  I used a medium cookie scoop and the cookies were huge.  Next time I might use a small cookie scoop, not that anyone complained about the big cookies!
