3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cookies

At the risk of hurting the feelings of all the other cookies I consume during the holiday season, I’m going to go on the record and say that Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are my very favorite. I mean, I typically will eat any sweet treat placed in front of me, but I’m just saying that if I had to pick only one at a cookie buffet, a pumpkin cookie would be the one.

If I don’t have all the time and ingredients to make the lengthier method of this cookie recipe, I make this easy 3-ingredient version using a box of cake mix. If you’ve never tried these before, you’re definitely in for a special treat!)

How To Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients – All you need to make these cookies is a box of spiced cake mix, a can of pumpkin, and some chocolate chips.  I love the flavor of the Betty Crocker spiced cake mix but any brand will do.  Also, if you prefer Homemade Pumpkin Puree, you should check out this recipe.

Combine – Start by mixing all of the ingredients into a large bowl until everything has combined. When it’s ready, the batter will be sticky.

Roll It Up – Drop golf-ball sized scoops of the batter onto a parchment-lined backing sheet.  Remember, the more uniform you can make the dough balls, the more evenly they will cook.

Bring The Heat – Bake these in the oven for about 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees F.  I usually check them around the 10 minute mark by placing a toothpick in the middle of a couple of the cookies to see if it comes out clean.

Chill Out – I like to let them cool on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring them to a cooling rack and then letting them finish cooling there.  And that’s it!!

Baking Tip

Bigger Is Better – If you would like larger cookies, try using an ice cream scoop with a trigger instead of tablespoon and increase cooking time by about 5 minutes.
