Easy Christmas Cookies III

okay...the quest for easy Christmas Cookies continues....

this one is totally easy,
and it's good...but maybe because it lacks chocolate and butter I would have to say of the 3 this week this is at the bottom of the list as a favorite for my family...
but it's still good....
and it's 'healthy'...

I was raking my brain for cookie recipes that I had that might have less than 5 ingredients and also fall in a Christmas Cookie category....then I started thinking about the Cake Mix cookie recipe....went to my cupboard and found a spice cake mix...and then googled Spice Cake Mix Cookies....so apparently I was the first to come up with this idea...tons of them are out there...so here you go, my version.

and only has 3 ingredients...
Pumpkin Spice Cake Cookies
1 box Spice Cake Mix
1 cup pumpkin
1 tsp cinnamon or all spice or pumpkin pie spice (optional you can leave these out if you want)

mix all three together and then scoop onto cookie tray, bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes....

simple right!
I didn't measure my pumpkin because I had a bag in my freezer and I just assumed that it was a cup...after dumping it in and mixing together the recipe I felt like it was probably closer to 1 1/2 cups pumpkin and my cookie dough was slightly runny, but it still worked and was good...
add-in's that would be good, raisins, walnuts or pecans, chocolate chips, cinnamon chips
I am also thinking of making a real simple cream cheese glaze to 'frost' them with...I'll keep you posted if I do!

and bonus...I fed these to my kids for breakfast and ate one myself...they taste really similar to a pumpkin muffin!
