Simple Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes I realize I've shared a lot of pumpkin with you. Get over it because I'm loving all thing pumpkin right now and the growing human making me unable to eat most things is letting me eat all the pumpkin, so it's going to keep happening. No seriously, I get it. I told Dave I was going to make pancakes this weekend and when I asked him what flavor, all he said was not pumpkin. But I digress. These cookies may be pumpkin, but they also have chocolate chips. And they are only three ingredients, so how could you not make them? The perfect after school snack, last minute treat when you're invited to a pot luck or a quick and tasty gift for that person you forgot to put on your list. These cookies are soft, full of flavor and dotted with chocolate chips. Chocolate, of course, it quite an appropriate pairing with pumpkin, so I'll never hesitate to include it.

Anytime I see a recipe touted as very few ingredients, it catches my attention and as long as it sounds delicious, I'm game. So when Shelly from Cookies and Cups posted this I knew I had to try it. It took me longer than I expected but only because I kept forgetting to pick up the spice cake mix. Shelly suggested that you could frost these cookies, but I decided instead to toss in some chocolate chips. Of course the cookie itself is delicious, so you could just keep it simple without either chocolate chips or frosting, but what's one more ingredient in a recipe this simple?

Simple Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies


16.5 ounce box spice cake mix
15 ounces pumpkin puree
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Pour cake mix into a medium bowl. Add pumpkin and stir to combine until a thick batter forms.

Fold in chocolate chips to distribute throughout.

Using a medium cookie scoop, drop dough onto a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 13-15 minutes or until edges are set and tops spring back when gently touched.

Remove from oven and cool on pan for 3-5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

Happy Baking,
The Cookie Princess
