In light of our Thanksgiving-themed week, I thought I would share a delicious pumpkin recipe that we make regularly this time of year.
These cookies have been a favorite in our house for the past couple of years. This Fall, they have been the #1 cookie of choice, probably because they are soo stinkin’ easy to make, and taste so wonderfully good! Here is my recipe:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 can pumpkin puree (29 oz size)
2 boxes yellow cake mix (or spice cake mix, depending on your preference)
1/4 c. water
2 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350*. Mix pumpkin, cake mix, and water together with a hand mixer until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoons onto a cookie sheet, and bake for 10-14 minutes (based on how hot your oven really gets). Poke with a toothpick, if it comes out clean, they are done! Let cool on a cooling rack.

Yield: about 5 1/2 dozen cookies (makes a LOT!)

Friends, it doesn’t get easier than this! It literally takes about 5 minutes or less to mix these yummies up and get them baking in the oven!

Here are some other pumpkin – themed recipes I want to try this week:
Pumpkin Cheese Cake (Martha Stewart)
Pumpkin Cream Pie (Pioneer Woman)

yum…my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
