Pumpkin Chocolate Spice Cookies

Day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas Treats brings us the moistest, (I'm assuming that's a word since spell check didn't tell me otherwise) simplest, extremely delicious cookie yet...the Pumpkin Chocolate Spice Cookie.

These things are perfect to make when you're in a crunch for something sweet but only have a few ingredients in the house. You only need three ingredients, unless you make your own dry cake mix instead of using the store bought box. I have yet to find a reason why store bought cake mix is any worse for you than homemade so if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I made these with carrot cake mix but you could really use any flavor and it would still work. It will just give a different flavor to the cookie but will be just as yummy. Hope you like it!

Pumpkin Chocolate Spice Cookies
1 box carrot cake mix, or other flavor if you desire
1 15 oz. can pureed pumpkin, or equivalent homemade pumpkin puree
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine cake mix and pumpkin puree in medium bowl until evenly mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonful onto ungreased baking sheet.

Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes. Let cool on pan for 1-2 minutes then transfer cookies to cooling rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
