Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies


I posted a chocolate-peanut butter version here already.  But this is the mama recipe.  I found this recipe one day several years ago and have been making them frequently ever since.  (I will eat ANYTHING made with pumpkin...especially in the fall!).  When I was pregnant with Smith, I must have eaten a dozen a week during the fall.  They're so simple and the dough freezes beautifully.  PLUS, as far as cookies go, they're low in fat.  A girl can't ask for more than that, right?

Shopping List
1 box of spice cake mix
1 egg
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin (I always use Libby's)
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (or use cinnamon)
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl with electric mixer.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Spoon 2 tablespoons of dough onto parchment for each cookie.

Bake 12 minutes.

They're cake cookies, so don't expect a "finished" looking cookie.  They're done though after 12 minutes.

  I just really, really, really love these cookies.  Really, really.  I hope you do too.

These are very tasty, but mine came out gooey and doughy. Definitely needed more than 12min.
