Easy Pumpkin Spice Cookies

This Friday is our school's very popular Grandparent's Day. I need to bake some cookies and I have cake mixes (they were on sale) and several cans of pumpkin (it's FALL-time!!). So I have all (2) the ingredients for these!

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

1 (18 1/4 ounce) box spice cake mix
1 (15 ounce) can solid-pack pumpkin (the small can)

(optional) 1 cup chopped walnuts, pecans, 1/2 c. raisins, or 1/2 c. chocolate chips
(optional) 1 cup cream cheese frosting

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Spray cookie sheets lightly with vegetable spray (Pam).

In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and pumpkin with a fork or mixer until well blended; stir in nuts or chips, if desired.

Drop by large rounded spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet; they don't flatten out much so however you place them on the sheet is pretty much how they'll look after baking.

Bake for 8 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of your cookies.

Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for up to 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Frost, if desired.

How many cookies you get depends on how large you make them of course - just increase your baking time if making larger cookies (it's truly difficult to burn these, but they will get crispier & less moist); Mine, made with a medium size cookie scoop, took 13-15 minutes to bake and yield about 3 dozen.
