Ingredients
  • 1box cake mixlemon, chocolate, yellow, your choice
  • 6tbsp melted buttercan use oil instead
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2cup powdered sugaror, cinnamon sugar for yellow cake mix
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Use parchment paper on two medium-size baking sheets.
  2. Mix cake mix, butter, and eggs together. Will be stiff, not runny like cake batter.
  3. Use a cookie scoop to form balls of dough, one at a time.
  4. Drop ball of dough into powdered sugar in a ramekin or small bowl. Swirl dough around in powdered sugar to coat all sides and really get the shape into a ball. (After a few, the wrist action on the swirl will come naturally!) Place dough on baking sheet, approximately 2″ apart, repeat until sheet is full.
  5. Pop in oven for 9-11 minutes. Cookies should look cracked but not browned. Edges will be firm, crinkles will look moist. (I overdid the second batch. They were still yummy, but you really want the moistness to come thru.)
  6. Set up next cookie sheet while first one bakes.
  7. Cool (if you can wait that long). Enjoy! Crinkle cookies keep for several days in plastic bags on the counter, longer in the fridge. Not that you’ll ever get to test that! 😉
Recipe Notes

Perfect, simple cookie to make with little kids. They can easily (if sloppily) roll the dough balls around on a plate with powdered sugar if they can’t get the motion of rotating them in the ramekin.
