1 (18.25 ounce) package spice cake mix

1 egg

1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin or 1- 3/4 cups fresh pumpkin puree

Optional: 1 cup chocolate chips ( I had some many candy bars leftover from Halloween I just cut up and did chunks of chocolate in these)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon allspice or pumpkin pie spice

Frosting:

canned cream cheese frosting

(If you like walnuts or prefer raisins to chocolate this an alternative as well)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Parchment lined cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, stir together the cake mix, egg. spices and pumpkin until well blended. Drop by rounded spoonfuls or a melon ball scooper onto the prepared cookie sheet.



Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Frost with canned cream cheese frosting.


For homemade frosting:

2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup Whipped cream cheese

Heavy cream to make a medium thickness

Mix until desired thickness adding more cream for thinner frosting.
