Pumpkin Spice Cake Mix Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting


Just watch these disappear! Make a batch this season!
In a hurry this holiday season? Try this easy cake mix recipe adapted from our local supermarket. The bakery girl told me it was two ingredients the cake mix and pumpkin. I adapted it adding the chocolate, spices and frosting. A huge hit at the office and the family just loved them, so easy for anyone to make these. 

 Soft Pumpkin Cookies... moist, cake-like cookies that are a perfect treat for Autumn and holiday gatherings! Here's the recipe! Enjoy.....

1 (18.25 ounce) package spice cake mix
1 egg
1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin or 1- 3/4  cups fresh pumpkin puree
1 cup chocolate chips ( I had some many candy bars leftover from Halloween I just cut up and did chunks of chocolate in these)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice or pumpkin pie spice
Frosting:
canned cream cheese frosting
(If you like walnuts or prefer raisins to chocolate this an alternative as well)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Parchment lined cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, stir together the cake mix, egg. spices and pumpkin until well blended. Drop by rounded spoonfuls or a melon ball scooper onto the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Frost with canned  cream cheese frosting.
