Ready for the easiest cookie recipe of your life? Oh, and it can be made in different ways to transform from pumpkin cookies to chocolate chip (or your favorite)! I originally got this recipe as a healthy cookie option from an old ww diet buddy as 2 ingredient cake mix cookies. But I added a 3rd and formed them into pumpkins for a fun Halloween treat the whole family will love.
I’ll share some variations below the recipe for more ideas on how to swap out ingredients. You can make a lot of different flavors and types of cookie with the basic cake mix combo!
Easy Cake Mix Cookies with Pumpkin
- Box of cake mix (White, Vanilla or Spice flavor)
- Can of pumpkin puree – 15oz. (puree not pumpkin pie mix)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheet or use a silicone baking mat.
Mix cake mix and pumpkin puree.
Place spoonfuls of pumpkin mixture on cookie sheet. Carefully add 1 pecan per cookie as the ‘pumpkin stem’.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until set. Enjoy!
Store leftovers in an airtight container.
And the Cake Mix Cookies options are endless! You can swap out the ingredients for your taste or food allergy preferences. The base is cake mix and pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin) but you can try your favorite cake flavor or even try a swap for the pumpkin.
Other Cake Mix Cookie Options:
Chocolate Chip Cookies — > Add chocolate chips to the batter as 3rd ingredient
Peanut Butter Cookies — > Swap out pumpkin puree for peanut butter
Birthday Cake Cookies — > Funfetti Cake Mix with sprinkles
