Buttery, soft, and filled with the flavor of cinnamon, these yummy Cinnamon Chip Cookies are so incredibly easy to make, you won’t believe it!
Recently I found a recipe for cookies that sounded easy and delicious in one of my old cookbooks. The original recipe called for using chocolate cake mix and white chocolate chips to make a fast, delicious and easy cookie. I decided to tweak the recipe just a bit, and that’s how I came up with this recipe for yummy cinnamon chip cookies!
The cookies are so EASY to make, because a boxed cake mix is used as the base. The prep time is only about 5 minutes, so you can have fresh baked, soft and delicious cinnamon chip cookies in the oven in under 10 minutes!

How To Make Cinnamon Chip Cookies
In a large mixing bowl, place the cake mix powder, vegetable oil, water and an egg. Stir these ingredients well (or use electric mixer), until ingredients are fully combined.
Add the cinnamon chips to the batter. Stir, until the mixture is fully combined.
Spray your cookie sheets with non-stick spray. Drop cookie batter by rounded Tablespoons onto cookie sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each one. NOTE: Quantity using a standard sized Tablespoon will yield about 4 dozen cinnamon chip cookies. I used large HEAPING Tablespoons of batter, so my quantity was reduced to 2 dozen).
Time To Bake Cinnamon Chip Cookies!
Bake these cookies in preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. When done, the batter should be set, and the tops of the cookies should have a crackled appearance. If you are making the larger sized cookies, the cooking time will need to be increased, to make sure they are cooked through.
When cookies are done, remove cookie sheets from oven. Important: Let the cookies rest on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes, BEFORE transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Once the cinnamon chip cookies have completely cooled, they are ready to eat! The cookies have great flavor, and are SO EASY to make, and I hope you enjoy them. They really taste good! Why not share a little plate of cookies with a neighbor? That’s a great conversation starter!
