To the Rescue

What's a girl to do once she has raided all of her daughter's good candy from her Jack-O-Lantern?

Well, bake of course!

These pumpkin cookies are the absolute best and they are the absolute easiest to make. I stumbled across these last year here and they are now a fall pantry staple. Unless you are morally opposed to using a cake mix (and really, aren't we a tad suspicious of those people anyway?) then these cookies are for you.

1 Spice cake mix
1 can pumpkin
1 bag chocolate chips

Mix cake mix & pumpkin, stir in chocolate chips (use whatever amount you deem necessary). Drop (or scoop with your handy dandy cookie scoop) onto cookie sheet; bake for 16-18 minutes @ 350 degrees. Enjoy with a glass of cold milk or hot coffee.

I have made them without chocolate chips and frosted them with vanilla or cream cheese frosting and added a few fall sprinkles. Yesterday I added chocolate chips and because I was feeling a tad bit sassy, some cinnamon chips too. Smackity-smack-SMACK.

Do I have crumbs on my chin?


  1. I sometimes think I'm the only person repulsed by pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, weird.

  2. MMMMmmmm!
    love that recipe- so fast & easy- I'm going to try that!

  3. These sound delicious! Do you use the smaller or larger can of pumpkin? Also, no oil, egg, nothing? This is my kind of recipe!

  4. Just a 15 oz. can of pure pumpkin. No eggs or anything else. That's why I love this recipe--just pantry goods.

  5. You. Are. Evil.

    I am SO gonna make these to take to the in-laws' T-Day.

  6. Ummmm....YUM!!! I will be making these today for the big football game tonight! Thanks for sharing!

  7. made these yesterday... nary a crumb left!

  8. Lelly (and any one else that makes them): Glad you liked them! A batch rarely lasts more than a day and a half or so around here.
