What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground  cinnamon
  • 1 (18-1/4-ounce) package white cake mix  (see Note)
  • 1 stick butter,  melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla  extract
What To Do:
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl,  mix together sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, butter,  egg, and vanilla with a spoon until dough forms. (Some dry mix will remain.)  Shape dough into 1-inch balls.
  3. Roll balls in sugar mixture, then place about 2  inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until set. Remove  from baking sheets to cooling racks.

We tested this recipe with both the 18.25 ounce box as well as a 15.25 ounce  box of cake mix and both batches of cookies came out the same. Either size box  will work for this recipe.
