Cake Batter Snickerdoodles

Hi, it’s Rachel from Adventures of a DIY Mom.
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite cookie recipes. It’s a slight twist on a classic – a cake batter snickerdoodle.
This recipe originates from my Grandma.  I doctored it up a bit to include a cake batter flavor. 
These cookies are so delicious.
They are crisp on the outside and soft in the middle – to me that equals perfection!

1 pkg vanilla pudding mix
