OK, I made some cookies. They're not going to win any beauty contests but they have two big things in their favor. They are : 1. almost ridiculously easy and 2. very tasty.
Here's what you need (really, this is all):
1 box spice cake mix
1 can pumpkin
1 bag white chocolate chips
a little cinnamon sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Dump the pumpkin and cake mix in a bowl and mix. Add white chocolate chips until the cookie:chip ratio looks like how you would want it. (feel free to taste! no eggs = no salmonella from raw dough!).
Spoon the batter out on a cookie sheet, and then take the bottom of a glass, run it under the faucet, and then dip it in a bowl of cinnamon sugar. Use it to flatten the cookies out a bit.
Bake about 10 minutes, or until they look done.
I took these to a party, and they were a hit!
(ps. did you know there is a canned pumpkin shortage? Apparently there was a combo of a lot of rain and a small harvest, and some places are out of pumpkin (OUT OF PUMPKIN. the horror, the horror). Anyhow, if you see some, snap it up).
