Easy Pumpkin Cookies

Since we are on the subject of ridiculously easy things to make, I thought I'd throw in this one right now.  These pumpkin cookies taste like the expensive ones you can buy in the store (think 6/$3.99) and only take about 2 minutes to whip up--plus the bake time.  They require only three ingredients:

pumpkin, a spice cake mix and chocolate chips (the smiling boy and Halloween decorations are not required, but are highly recommended!).  We have another recipe for pumpkin cookies that is the fully from scratch method, which is delicious, but if you are in a real hurry (or just a little lazy, like I get), these are so easy to mix together and you still get that delicious, spicy fall smell filling your home.

Easy Pumpkin Cookies

1 spice cake mix
1 15 oz. can of pumpkin puree
1 c. chocolate chips

Pour the cake mix and pumpkin puree into a large bowl and mix until well combined.  Add the chocolate chips and stir it well.  Drop by tablespoon full onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

  1. Here's a little update--last time I made these, I added about 1/3 cup flour to the batter. This made them fluff up a little better.
