Cake Batter Snickerdoodles

Last week I was making some Snickerdoodles. In the middle of making them I remembered about all the cake batter cookies I've seen. Since I'd already started making them, I just added in some cake mix and pudding mix. They turned out to be the most delicious cookies I have had in a long time. I could NOT stop eating the dough or the cookies. The cookies were crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle. Perfection!

Want to make your own? 

Here's the recipe:

Cake Batter Snickerdoodles
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. shortening
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
3/4 c. dry yellow cake mix
1 box (3.4 oz) dry vanilla pudding mix
1 t. soda
1 t. cream of tartar
1/2 t. salt

Cream shortening and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, stir. Add dry ingredients. Mix well. Roll into small balls. Roll into sugar. 
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.

Want just a regular snickerdoodle?

Here's what I started with -  my Grandma's recipe: {I'm not sure who Effie is, but she sure gave my Grandma a killer recipe}

1/2 t. salt

Cream shortening and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, stir. Add dry ingredients. Mix well. Roll into small balls. Roll into sugar. {I usually do cinnamon sugar}
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
