Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

It's getting to be that time of year where everyone craves pumpkin and spice and everything nice.  Oh wait, did I say everyone?  I probably really mean that I crave stuff with pumpkin.  Except that I'm not a big fan of the pumpkin spice hershey's kisses.  Anyone else with me on this one?  I love the coconut kisses.  Alas, I digress.  Back to pumpkin.

My first introduction to this recipe was by Rookie Cookie (who has now said farewell to food blogging, sniff, sniff) about two years ago.  From the first batch, it was love at first bite.

They are super easy and super yummy.  So easy you won't believe it.  So easy you have to try them.  Promise you will, okay?  If you follow Weight Watchers, they are only 1 point each if you use mini-chips and make 36 cookies.  Oh, and don't eat all of them at once.  That would be 36 points.  Unless you haven't used your 35 weekly points then you can eat them all at once.  But expect to have a tummy ache.  So actually, yeah, still don't eat them all at once.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 box spice cake mix
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
1 bag chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet, whatever you like)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the cake mix and the pumpkin. Add the chocolate chips and stir well. Spoon mounds of dough onto a cookie sheet.

Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and allow to cool. Give one to each person in your family and then hide the rest for yourself (this is Rookie Cookie's advice and I wholeheartedly agree with her)
