Easy Biscoff Snickerdoodles {+ A Holiday Cookie Link Party & a $50 Target Gift Card Giveaway!}

Pin It

When it comes to holiday cookie baking, I like to have a few easy recipes in my arsenal to make.  I will set aside time and effort to make a few more labor intensive cookies (like cut out & frosted sugar cookies from scratch), but I also like to have a tasty variety of holiday cookies to have in the house and also to take to family and friends.  But honestly with a toddler running circles around my ankles in the kitchen, I need a few little effort gems I can whip up in no time.

Needless to say, my Easy Biscoff Snickerdoodles will be baking in my oven this coming weekend. :) 

I LOVE using cake mixes to make cookies.  The soft, chewy texture it can give almost from scratch cookies is to die for.  
Since I am such a cookie butter (aka, Biscoff) addict, I wanted to give one of my favorite cookies an update with this delicious spread...
Easy Biscoff Snickerdoodles
by Frugal Foodie Mama
Prep Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8-9 minutes
Ingredients (18-20 cookies)
  • 15.25 oz box of yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup creamy Biscoff spread or cookie butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the cake mix, eggs, and canola oil. Swirl in the Biscoff spread- do not completely mix it in.
Refrigerate the cookie dough for 1 hour.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Roll the dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, and then roll completely into the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place on the prepared baking sheet and then flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass.

Bake for 8-9 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
