Make 3 dozen, yummy Cinnamon Spice Crinkle Cookies (easily), using only 5 ingredients, including a spice cake mix as a shortcut!
If you’re looking for a delicious cookie that is absolutely EASY to make, keep reading! This recipe today, for cinnamon spice crinkle cookies couldn’t be any easier, and wow, are they good!
The cookie dough is made by mixing 4 ingredients, which takes only a couple of minutes. Once the cookie dough is mixed, it is refrigerated for one hour, then shaped into balls, coated in powdered sugar and baked!
Other than waiting for the dough to chill for an hour (paint the house or crochet a scarf… ha ha), there is nothing hard at all involved in making these cinnamon spiced cookies! Here’s how to make them:

Prepare The Batter For The Crinkle Cookies
Place the cake mix, eggs, cinnamon, and oil in a large mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer and mix, until the ingredients are fully combined.
Once the dough is made for the crinkle cookies, it needs to be well chilled. Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator for one hour. Don’t skip this step! This refrigeration time is necessary to firm up the batter, so that it can be shaped into dough balls easier.
When the dough is fully chilled, preheat your oven to 350°F. You will also want to line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper. Okay- now it’s time to shape the cookies!
Roll The Cinnamon Spice Crinkle Cookies Into Balls
Measure out the powdered sugar into a small bowl. This will be used to coat the cookie dough balls, before they are baked.
To form the cookies, place a small Tablespoon of dough into the palm of your hand. Roll the dough between your palms until it forms a ball. NOTE: As you work, the dough will begin to warm up a bit. Your hands will get a bit messy (as you can see in the 2nd photo below!). No biggie!
Drop the balls of cookie dough (a couple at a time) into the powdered sugar. Turn them, to fully coat on all sides with the powdered sugar. TIP: The important thing is to not make the cookies too big, AND to get them coated very well in the powdered sugar.
Time To Bake The Cinnamon Spice Crinkle Cookies!
Place the coated cinnamon spice crinkle cookies onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Leave about 2″ of space between each cookie, because they will spread as they bake!
Bake the cookies at 350° F. for 7-8 minutes, or until done. Mine usually take about 8 minutes, but check them around 7 minutes, since oven temps can vary.
When done, remove the baking sheets from the oven, and let the cookies rest for about a minute, then transfer them with a spatula to a wire rack. Once they have cooled completely, they are ready to eat!
I love the look of these yummy cookies! Nice and crackled looking on the top, and soft and wonderfully cinnamon-spice flavored on the inside! The cookies are perfect to enjoy any time of the year! The warm cinnamon and spices flavoring the cookies are especially perfect for the Fall season. YUM!
I really hope you will give this recipe for delicious cinnamon spice crinkle cookies a try! They taste REALLY good, and honestly are a cinch to make! Have a wonderful day, and thank you for visiting. I hope you will come back soon for more family-friendly recipes. Enjoy the cookies!

Make 3 dozen, super yummy Cinnamon Spice Crinkle Cookies very easily, using only 5 ingredients, including a boxed spice cake mix as a shortcut!
- 1 box Betty Crocker Spice Cake Mix (15.25 ounce box)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ½ cup vegetable oil (or canola)
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
Place cake mix, eggs, cinnamon, and oil in a large mixing bowl. Mix well, (with electric beaters or by hand) until ingredients are fully combined. Cover bowl and place in refrigerator for one hour. Don't skip the refrigeration step, because you want the dough really cold before you shape the dough balls.
When the dough is fully chilled, preheat oven to 350°F, and line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Measure powdered sugar into a small bowl. To form cookies, place a small Tablespoon of dough into the palm of your hand. Roll dough between your palms until it forms a ball. Drop the balls of cookie dough (a couple at a time) into the powdered sugar. Turn them, to fully coat on all sides with powdered sugar. TIP: The important thing is to not make the cookies too big, AND to get them coated very well in powdered sugar.

Remove from oven, and let cookies rest for a minute, then transfer them with a spatula to a wire rack. Once cooled completely, they are ready to eat! Enjoy!

Hello, These cookies sound great…I was wondering if I can use less oil ? Really want to bake with my g’daughter. I appreciate any advise & help you can give me.
Wishing you a very happy blessed Holiday.
I would recommend sticking with the amount of oil listed to ensure the best results. Hope you enjoyed the holidays, as well!
I have a box of Duncan Hines Spice cake mix, but it doesn’t list the actual spices in it. I looked a spice cake recipe and the spices it has listed are as follows:
Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Cloves, Cardamom, and Allspice.
Hope this helps!
I’m in the UK so can’t get Betty Crocker products. Please could you tell me which spices are in the mix so that I could adapt another recipe? Thanks
