Snickerdoodle Cookies

When I get bored I tend to bake, which is both good and bad. It's good because it gives me something to do and provides my family with some yummy treats, but on the flip side, it's sometimes hard to get someone to actually eat what I bake (not because they're bad I'll have you know). Anyway, today I cracked out one of my mom's old cookbooks that she gave to me and decided to make some Snickerdoodles. I'll tell you, it's definitely an interesting recipe, but it was still good. I got this recipe out of the Favorite Brand Name Easy to Bake Cookbook.

-3 tablespoons sugar
-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1 package Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Classic Yellow Cake Mix (I used Betty Crocker and added flour to make the consistency thicker)
-2 eggs
-1/4 cup vegetable oil

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets. Place sheets of foil on countertop for cooling cookies.
2. Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.
3. Combine cake mix, eggs and oil in large bowl. Stir until well blended. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place balls 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten balls with bottom of glass.
4. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool one minute on cookie sheets. Remove to foil to cool completely.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies
