Easy Pumpkin Cookies
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. 😉 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!
These are some of the easiest cookies to make because you use a boxed cake mix, plus just a few additional ingredients. Those other ingredients include cream cheese (and BUTTER!!), so you know it has to be good. 😀 I 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. 🙂 I like that it gives these cookies just the right amount of pumpkin flavor, but it’s not too pumpkin-y.
How to Make Pumpkin Cookies:
I love how quickly these cookies come together! It only takes about 5-10 minutes of prep work. You do have to chill the dough for 30 minutes, so plan ahead. But other than that, they are so quick and so easy. See for yourself!
- Beat butter, vanilla, egg and cream cheese until fluffy. Mix in the pumpkin cake mix.
- Chill the dough for 30 minutes.
- Once the dough is chilled, roll into balls and dip in a bowl of powdered sugar.
- Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes, and sift powdered sugar on top once they come out of the oven, if desired.
Pretty much any recipe with cream cheese and butter is a keeper in my book. This pumpkin cookie recipe is one I hope to make every year in the fall when the seasonal Pumpkin Cake Mix is out. 🙂 Once you make pumpkin cookies with cake mix, you want to do it any other way!
