Easy Snickerdoodle Cake Mix Cookies

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.

How to Make Cake Mix Snickerdoodles 

These cookies are effortless to make with only four simple ingredients. In a small bowl, combine granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, stir together cake mix, cream of tartar, vegetable oil, and eggs. Using a small cookie scoop, shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake until the edges start to turn golden brown. Cool cookies on the pan for 2 minutes. Remove cookies to cool completely on a wire rack.
