Fall is the season of pumpkin-flavored everything, and a million recipes highlighting the popular ingredient. Now, pumpkin is a pretty dividing flavor, so chances are if you make classic pumpkin cookies only some of your friends are going to want to grab one. The good thing about these cookies is that the flavor of pumpkin spice isn’t overbearing in the slightest. It’s mostly just delicious with a hint of that classic fall flavor.
This recipe is one my mom insists on baking for anyone and everyone during the fall season, and I’m obsessed. I ate way too many over fall break and, with the huge batch she sent with me back to school, I’m sure I’ll be stress-eating them while studying for midterms.
But if you didn’t come back from break with delicious fall goods, don’t worry! These cookies are so simple you can bake them even on a busy weekday.
The Perfect Autumn Cookies
1 box of Duncan Hines French vanilla cake mix (My mom swears by this brand. In fact, she recently tried it with a different brand only to get somewhat disappointing results)
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoons of ground ginger
1/2 teaspoons of ground nutmeg
1 15 oz can of pure pumpkin
Mini chocolate chips-semi sweet is best for this
Mix together all ingredients. Drop a spoon size of dough on a cookie sheet (use an ice cream scoop if you have one!) and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-13 minutes depending on their size.
