"Pumpkin Pie" Cookies

"Pumpkin Pie" cookies are made with a box cake mix, and surprisingly enough... no pumpkin! Yet they have that flavor of the season in a soft cookie that people can't get enough of! This recipe is one that is super versatile and so fast and easy that you will want to experiment with other variations for sure!


"Pumpkin Pie" Cookies 

I am a firm believer in having some simple recipes up my sleeve. Even better are simple recipes that taste like they are something special. This is one of those! Technically, these are gooey butter cookies. However, when you use spice cake mix instead of yellow, you get cookies that taste amazingly like pumpkin pie!! Soooo yummy! Here is the simple recipe for these tasty little morsels...

Ingredients
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (18.25 ounce) package spice cake mix
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

 Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Add cake mix, and stir until well blended. Roll into 1inch balls and roll the balls in the confectioners' sugar. Place 1 inch apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks. 

Enjoy!
