Snickerdoodle Cake Cookies The Southern Lady Cooks


These cookies are so easy to make. They never last very long at my house even though this recipe makes 25-30 cookies. They are so soft and chewy, I promise you can’t have just one. The butter really makes this cookie pop with flavor.  You will be surprised at how good these cookies are even though they are made from a mix and you can make them in very little time when you need something in a hurry or just want a delicious cookie to snack on.  They are wonderful with coffee or milk.

  1. Thelma Chubbuck says:

    Do you use salted or unsalted butter?

  2. Can these be frozen?

  3. The Southern Lady says:

    You can add it if you like, I don’t feel its needed in the cake mix cookies. That is just an easy fun recipe. I use it in this recipe from scratch:

  4. I was curious if you could use gluten free cake mix? If so, do I need to add or substitute any ingredients? Thank you!

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Hi Melissa,

      I have never made them with gluten free mix so I have no idea if it would work or not. If you try it, let us know how it works out for you. Thanks so much!
