French vanilla cake mix is a great stand-in for the white cake mix.

This sweet little cookie with the whimsical name originated in 19th-century New England and has become an American classic. In this recipe, cake mix provides convenience to the traditional version, but the method of rolling the dough in sugar and cinnamon before baking has been kept.
