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
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.
