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.

Ingredients for the cookies are mixed together in a large bowl.

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.

After mixing the dough, it is refrigerated for one hour.

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.

The cinnamon spice crinkle cookies are ready to bake.

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!

Once baked, the crinkle cookies are cracked on the tops.

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!

Ingredients
  • 1 box Betty Crocker Spice Cake Mix (15.25 ounce box)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Instructions
  1. 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.

  2. When the dough is fully chilled, preheat oven to 350°F, and line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.

  3. 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.

  4. Place coated dough balls on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Leave 2" of space between each cookie. Bake at 350° F. for 7-8 minutes, or until done. 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!

  1. 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
