It's finally feeling like Autumn

Not that you'd know by our weather, since it's still about 100 degrees.

But tonight I made Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I love all things pumpkin. 

Ok.  I take that back.  I like most dessert things pumpkin.

Pie, roll, bagel, dip, cheesecake, chocolate chip cookies, bread, ice cream.  Yep.  I love me some pumpkin.

So tonight, since I love you all so much, I thought I'd share the recipe with you.

It's a super guarded family secret, so consider yourselves lucky.

Take one Spice-flavored cake mix.  Any one will do, but I could only find it in Betty Crocker's brand.
Add one 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree.
Stir until well combined.
Add about 1 cup of mini chocolate chips.
Drop onto cookie sheet...the cookies don't spread so you can put lots on the cookie sheet without worries.
Bake in an oven preheated to 350* for about 15 minutes.  I made a couple more than 36 cookies and 15 minutes seemed to be the magic number.
Remove them from the oven and leave on the baking sheet for a few minutes (I did 15).
Eat them won't be difficult.

Hope you enjoy them.  Although they sound super easy, they are good.  In fact, just as good as the ones that require all sorts of ingredients.

I made these tonight for f.h.e. Did you know they're vegan (we're a little crazy like that at my house)? So delicious. We ate the entire batch in one sitting. Thank you! I posted your recipe on my blog (hope you don't mind!).
