Feature: Pumpkin Cake Mix Cookies: Just 2 Ingredients. Really!

Pumpkin Cake Mix Cookies: this is the ultimate easy cake mix cookies recipe. Yes, it’s possible to make homemade cookies with just 2 (yes, two!) ingredients! 

Flavorings in the spice cake mix combined with canned pumpkin give these drop cookies the taste of pumpkin pie in a soft, cakey cookie. 

Mix them, drop them, and bake them as rounded – or take two additional steps to make them look even better: 1. Make flattened cookies rather than rounded cookies. Flattened cookies bake more evenly and take just one additional step. 2. Glaze the cookies. It’s easy to do and it sure looks pretty.

But however you decide these cookies should look, they are awesome.

Prep time: 5 minutes (or less)
Bake time: 9-10 minutes
Makes about 3 dozen
