Pumpkin Cookies (Only 2 Ingredients Required)

Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  I got to have my parents come and stay with me, we had a great time!  Always fun to spend more time with them :)  We made a chocolate roll yesterday, yum!  Wheat free, and not bad health-wise as far as a dessert goes!  Plus, tastes awesome!  So, I will put that recipe up soon.  

Today, I have the easiest Pumpkin Cookies to share!  I am a huge pumpkin fan!  I love and look forward to all the food items pumpkin appears in during the fall season.  What is your favorite?  These cookies are 2 ingredients, maybe a couple extra if you want to add texture or variety.  Here is a picture of how they turn out if you frost them, I didn't get a picture of my last batch, so this is from a different site (here).  Her recipe is a little more involved, but i'm sure is delicious :)

Ingredients
·         1 box Spice Cake mix (18.25oz)
·         1 can Pumpkin (15oz, the small one)
·         1 cup chocolate chips or chopped nuts or Raisins (optional - can do one, two, or all three!)

Directions
1.       Preheat oven to 350°F.  Spray baking sheets with cooking spray.
2.      In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, pumpkin and if desired, chocolate chips or nuts until well blended.
3.      Drop by large spoonfuls onto baking sheet.  Cookies don’t flatten and will come out pretty much how they look on the pan.
4.      Bake 12 min.  Can bake longer or shorter for different size cookies.

Now these cookies only have 52 calories each when you get 36 out of a batch, and use 1 cup of extras.  They have 0.5 grams fat, no cholesterol, 1 gram of fiber, 1 gram of protein, 11 carbs, and 350 IU Vitamin A.

Yay for fall and pumpkin foods!  What is your favorite pumpkin food?  Share below!
