Ooey Gooey Butter Pumpkin Cookies!! They are so soft, easy, yummy and perfect for fall! Recipe includes pumpkin cake mix, cream cheese, & powdered sugar.

I’m on a PUMPKIN kick. I’m apologizing now if you’re not a pumpkin lover because I may have a few more Pumpkin recipes in the works. If you love pumpkin, then you’ll be happy because every PUMPKIN recipe I’ve made so far has turned out FABULOUS!! And that means a lot coming from me because I like pumpkin but I don’t love pumpkin. πŸ˜‰

I’m calling this next recipe Gooey Butter Pumpkin Cookies. They’re a spin off of my Gooey Butter Cookies. I brought them to a church function Saturday night, and they were gone in no time. The best part about them is they are so soft and gooey and are perfect for this time of year. I like that you can taste the pumpkin but it’s not too pumpkin-y. The recipe also includes cream cheese (and BUTTER!!), so you know it has to be good. πŸ˜€

Found this Pillsbury Perfectly Pumpkin Cake Mix in the Halloween section at Target. I haven’t spotted it anywhere else just yet but will let you know if I do. It’s LIMITED EDITION so if you love pumpkin I’d stock up on it. πŸ™‚

hummmmm…..delicious!!!from Spain. I love your blog. πŸ˜‰

    Lil' Luna

    Yay for readers in Spain!! SO glad you like the blog. πŸ™‚

I’m sorry if it sounds stupid but…. what makes them gooey? Like, when you bite into the cookie, is it just a little wet inside? (Wet is a bad word, I know.) I’m trying to picture. thanks!

    Lil' Luna

    LOL!! Not a dumb question at all!! They are gooey because they are very soft and moist (hate that word :/). The butter and cream cheese make them that way and instead of calling them SOFT and MOIST PUMPKIN COOKIES, GOOEY describes them better. Plus, that was what the recipe was called when my mom first found it years and years ago. πŸ™‚

Laurie

Man alive, Krystin! These look unbelievably delicious! You always have the best desserts!

By the way, I linked to this in my own blog. Loved it soooo much! Thanks!

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you so much, Laurie! I definitely have a thing for desserts, lol. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, I HAVE to make these cookies! They are calling my name. Do you think one could freeze this dry cake mix. Since its limited edition it won’t be on the shelves long so I thought I would stock up and freeze it. What is your opinion on this?
Thanks so much!

kari

These were great. I couldn’t get the right cake mix so I used “spice cake” instead. It gave them a real gingerbread flavor. Very good…

    Lil' Luna

    Oooooh, Spice Cake would be great!! Glad you liked them. πŸ™‚

    Britt

    I’m trying spice cake and, added some pumpkin…smells good in the oven right now!

Kendall

Ok these look delicious! I was wondering if you could tell me what store sells that cake mix? I would love to make these and looked at one grocery store with no success!

    Lil' Luna

    I’ve seen them at Target and Walmart. πŸ™‚

ibt

Wanting to make these for a fundraiser. Does anyone know what the shelf life is on these? Thanks

    Lil' Luna

    These cookies usually only stay good for 2-3 days max. Hope that helps. πŸ™‚

ashley

What brand was the cake mix? I’m having a hard time finding it. I found a pumpkin creme Pillsbury mix?

    ashley

    Never mind, I just realized there is a picture of it πŸ™‚ for some reason the pictures were not loading when I looked at it the first time! I still cannot find the mix, so I may try it with the pumpkin creme one and it may be a huge fail! We will see. Thanks!

      Lil' Luna

      Let me know how it goes if you use the Pumpkin Creme. I’ve seen the mix at Target and Walmart with other seasonal baking products. πŸ™‚

Mila

Do you think a cream cheese icing would be good on these.. I want to make them for an upcoming dinner party.

    Lil' Luna

    I definitely think Cream Cheese frosting would go great on these. I would just make sure to pat them down a bit so they’re not so curved on top so they’ll be easier to frost. πŸ™‚

Nicole Sullivan

How many cookies does this batch make?

    Lil' Luna

    Depends on how big you make them… if smaller then close to 3 dozen. If a tid bigger, then about 2 dozen. πŸ™‚

Crystal

Hello! I accidentally bought perfectly pumpkin cookie mix. Do you think that will work?

    Lil' Luna

    Unfortunately, I don’t think it will, although I’ve never tried. :/

Britt

What if u can’t find that cake mix??

Moni

Hi, how much cream cheese do you use? 1.8 oz or 1/8 of the cream cheese bar
Thanks

sally

Hi, this is Sally again…………I think it was me as the cookies did turn out great after all, and I never bake anything unless it is from scratch, but now these will always be a regular for me as being 74, it help save me many steps………………….so thanks for the reply, but they did turn out well after all. Merry Christmas, sally

Christy Hale

On your gooey butter cookie recipe video it shows two sticks of butter and the written recipe calls for one stick. Which is right?
