A friend of mine told me about these cookies--what impressed me most was the short list of ingredients! Wow, who knew? In addition to the 3 ingredients in the photo, I also added a bit of pumpkin pie spice. These taste just like the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies that the bakery at my local grocery store make--I wonder if they use this short cut, too? I didn't even bother getting out my big mixer--you can do this by hand. They are very soft and cake-like and even Jeff liked them.
1 package spice cake mix
1 can pumpkin (15 oz)
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
chocolate chips (to liking, about 1/3 package for us)
2. Blend together cake mix, pumpkin, and spice; mixing well. Add chocolate chips.
3. Drop by rounded spoonfuls on prepared sheets.
4. Bake for 10-14 minutes, let cool at least 5 minutes on sheets before transferring to wire racks to finish cooling.
Just for fun, I figured out some health information about these cookies.
Amounts are based per cookie (recipe makes 30 cookies)
Total calories: 98 calories
Fat calories: 10.8 calories (not grams)
Protein grams: 1.3 grams
Fiber grams: 0.7 grams
In comparison, this is less than 1/2 the calories for a regular chocolate chip cookie, much less fat, and more protein and fiber. So easy, so good, so simple.
