Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

OH.MY.GOODNESS. I love this twist on one of my favorite cookies and I think you will, too!

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Ingredients:

1 package plain white cake mix or yellow cake mix
1 cup whole milk (I used skim milk and it still tasted delicious)
1 stick of butter, melted
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and flour & grease 2 9″ pans (for cakes) or line your cupcake tin. Place cake mix, milk, melted butter, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Blend for three minutes (stop to scrape once).





Pour into pans and bake for 27-29 minutes (for cake) or 22-25 minutes (for cupcakes). Allow the cakes to cool completely.

Snickerdoodle Frosting Ingredients:
1 stick butter
3 3/4 cup confectioners sugar
3-4 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

Beat butter until fluffy for frosting. Add all other ingredients.






I had to throw in a picture of my beautiful helper, Kelsey Grace. The kids always get so excited when I let them lick the leftovers.
Handsome boy!
We had fun frosting these together!!!
