Snickerdoodle Cookies

  • 1 box vanilla cake mix {15.25 ounces}
  • cup all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • cup butter {melted}
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Cinnamon Sugar Mixture

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Cinnamon Buttercream

  • ¾ cup butter {softened}
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons cinnamon
  • 4 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tablespoons milk {to thin}


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

Snickerdoodle Cookies

  1. Combine cake mix, flour and cinnamon in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add eggs, melted butter and sour cream and mix using a hand held {or stand} mixer until you have a thick dough.

  2. To make the cinnamon sugar mixture combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix until combined.

  3. Using a 1/4 cup, measure out 11-12 cookies. Roll the cookies in the cinnamon sugar mixture and use your hands to press the cookie dough into a round disc. Bake 6 cookies at a time. Place the cookie on a silicone mat {or parchment} lined baking sheet for 10-12 minutes or until set.

  4. Remove cookies from the oven and allow them to cool completely on the baking sheet.

Cinnamon Buttercream

  1. For the frosting, combine the softened butter in a large bowl with a hand held mixer until creamy and smooth. Add cinnamon and powdered sugar and continue to mix. Add enough milk to get a pipeable consistency.


  1. Add the frosting to a piping bag {or zipper bag} and cut a large triangle from the bottom. Pipe a circular motion starting on the outside and working your way to the middle. Sprinkle the top of each cookie with additional cinnamon sugar mixture. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
