spice cake mix cookies
We're big fans of 3-ingredient cake mix cookies around here. The spice cake mix cookies might be my favorites.
I adore the seasonal, spicy flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Rolling the cookies in cinnamon sugar is optional, but I highly recommend it! Our pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are also full of fall spices. And cinnamon roll cookies are delicious.
These cookies would make a great addition to your Thanksgiving dessert table or your Christmas cookie trays.

ingredients and tools to make spice cake mix cookies
Mix in large eggs and either vegetable or canola oil (a type of vegetable oil) for easy cookies. And a cinnamon sugar mixture is optional, but recommended.
You will need two to three baking trays. If you reuse a baking tray, be sure it's completely cool before adding cookie dough!
Line your trays with parchment paper for best results.
A one-tablespoon cookie scoop helps portion your dough perfectly. Scoop rounded tablespoons. For larger cookies, you may use a two-tablespoon scoop, and add a couple minutes of baking time.
While our recipes provide both the metric and non-metric amounts, for best results, we recommend a digital scale.
I use an oven thermometer for accuracy. (This is how I know my oven runs 25 degrees cold.)
how to make cinnamon sugar
For this recipe, you can sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the unbaked cookies.
To make cinnamon sugar, fully combine ¼ cup granulated sugar with 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon.
You may have cinnamon sugar leftover. Store in a sealed container in a dark place for up to a year.
