Crunchy Snickerdoodle Cookies


Last week I wanted to make a dessert but discovered that I was out of flour. I searched the pantry and found 1 box of yellow cake mix so this is what I came up with.

The cookies came out crunchy on the outside and chewing on the inside!

They were such a hit with my family that they insisted I have to put them on my Holiday baking list!

I posted a print out recipe for you…you’ll love it!
