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!!
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.

Fantastic soft and delicious cookie. I made with my 2 year old that I watch and he loved them too. Great way to help a little one feel good about baking. His first thing he did was share them and then enjoyed them. Keep the delicious and easy baking recipes coming. P.S. I made with white cake mix because I couldn’t find yellow or the one with the spices. I added 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg, 1/4 tsp ground ginger and 1/4 tsp all spice.
I’m so glad you guys liked this recipe! Thanks for your kind comment!
Just made 8 dozen. Boys said needed a bit of salt. But they liked how chocolaty they were.

It has become my fascination to make cookies from cake mix, they just taste so much better to me! And they are usually softer than normal cookies
I totally agree! 🙂
I was a little skeptical that they only called for pumpkin puree, but man were they tasty! Nice and thick and soft! Next time I think I’ll try them with cinnamon baking chips.
Cinnamon baking chips sound amazing! You’ll have to let me know if you like them!
Every bite was pumpkin spice bliss. Thanks for making it so easy and delicious.
