Pumpkin Spice Cookies

...Or, as I prefer to call them: super lazy cheater cookies. I reserve these goodies for when I'm in a terrible hurry (or have greatly procrastinated) and can barely prop my eyelids open with toothpicks. They are super-quick, quite possibly the quickest cookie recipe prep ever.

The taste is pretty good for how easy they are - I like to add a few extras to bring out the pumpkin flavor, and love to add chips as well for some texture difference. The cookies are VERY cakey, usually not a big fan but hey - I can deal when it's this easy!

Pumpkin Spice Cookies
(adapted from here)

1 (18.25 oz.) package spice cake mix
1 (15 oz.) can solid pack pumpkin
3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. bittersweet chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, stir together the cake mix, pumpkin, spice, and vanilla until well blended. Stirn in chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

I LOVE THESE. I think they might be good with a maple glaze but don't have a recipe- any ideas?

Oh yeah, I'm going to try these. As a mom to a 1-year-old, there often isn't time to bake. But this I can throw in the oven. Yay.
