How to make cake mix pumpkin cookies

Step 1: Pour the bag of spice cake mix into a large mixing bowl.

Step 2: Add the pumpkin puree and egg and mix together until the batter is completely combined.

This will look very thick at first, but just keep stirring and it all comes together. I find a rubber spatula to be the easiest tool for mixing these pumpkin cookies.

Step 3: Fold in the semi sweet chocolate chips into the pumpkin cake mix batter using your rubber spatula.

Step 4: Drop and shape the pumpkin batter into balls on a baking sheet. The pumpkin cookies will not change shape much, so shaping here will ensure more evenly sized cookies.

Step 5: Bake the cake mix pumpkin cookies at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes, until they no longer look gooey on top. Cool the cookies for 2 minutes on the pan before removing onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Cake Mix Pumpkin Cookies FAQs

How do I store pumpkin cookies?

Leftover pumpkin cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Do I add the ingredients on the back of the cake box?

Nope! You will only use the box of cake mix itself, plus the other ingredients listed on the recipe card below.

Do I have to use spice cake mix?

Any flavor of cake mix will work for this recipe. If you have white or yellow cake mix on hand, use that and add in pumpkin pie spice if you want more pumpkin flavor to your cookies.
