A Delicious Fall Treat

Last month on the Somewhat Simple Facebook page, we shared a link to our recipe for Cake Mix Cookies. One of our favorite  followers left us a comment about her favorite cake mix cookie that sounded delicious! She said she mixes 1 box of spice cake mix with a can of pumpkin puree and bakes the batter into cookies- YUM!!!

So I gave it a shot. I played around with those ingredients and added some chocolate chips until I found my new favorite cookie creation.  These soft pumpkin cookie bites were so easy to make and use only 3 ingredients! They’re so good, you can enjoy them all season long.

a box of pumpkin spice cake mix, a can of pumpkin puree and a bag of chocolate chips are the 3 ingredients you'll need to make this cookie recipe.

How To Make Pumpkin Cookie Bites

Use Just The Mix – Grab your 3 ingredients. Toss the cake mix in a bowl, omitting all the other ingredients on the back of the box. You won’t need to use the eggs or oil. Empty the entire can of canned pumpkin into the cake mix, and stir until combined.  If you want to try Homemade Pumpkin Puree, this recipe is perfect!

Fill & Cook – Scoop the batter and fill each ramekin in a mini muffin tin.  Place them in the oven and then bake them for about 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Bedazzle Them – Pull the pumpkin cookie bites out of the oven and immediately sprinkle with mini chocolate chips. Let them cool. You can drizzle some melted chocolate over the top, if you’d like, for an extra fancy touch.

YUM! Don’t they look good!  I will say that because they are bite-sized, they are so easy to consume and you might find yourself consuming 1, 2 or 3 too many! You’ve been warned.  Leave us a comment below and let us know how you liked these pumpkin cookie bites and how many you ate.:)
