Right after we got married, I asked my husband what food he could just eat a TON of and he said these pumpkin cookies his mom would make! I was surprised because he usually isn't a huge fan of sweets but I was totally sold when I made these cookies! They are the perfect amount of sweetness with a really fluffy texture.
1 (15 oz.) box of yellow cake mix
1 (15 oz.) can of pumpkin
1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
3/4 - 1 cup chocolate chips (I like dark chocolate chips)
Stir together cake mix, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice until combined. It will take a little bit of stirring but it will eventually all mix together!
Add the chocolate chips and mix gently.
Use an ice cream scoop or small (maybe 1/4 cup) measuring cup to scoop them onto a cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes. It's hard to tell when they are done, so you can break one open and make sure that it isn't wet inside.
You can use spice cake mix to replace both the yellow cake mix and the pumpkin pie spice! I prefer the taste of the original recipe and spice cake mix is sometimes hard to find.
Buying pumpkin pie spice is a lot cheaper at a dollar store than a grocery store.
