Pumpkin Spice & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Monday! It’s Columbus Day AND National Dessert Day so let’s celebrate with something sweet!

I was experimenting in the kitchen last night after dinner because my sweet tooth was raging. I have seen these easy 2-3 ingredient recipes all over Pinterest, so I had to give it a shot!

Ingredients:

  • 1 box Spice Cake Mix
  • 1 Can of Pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (not pictured)

Combined the pumpkin and the spice cake mix in a large mixing bowl.

Ooey gooey!
Ooey gooey!

This recipe made around 2 dozen cookies plus a few extra, depending on how much of the dough you snack on. I had to eat at least 3 of them straight out of the oven because they were so amazing!

Happy baking!
