My local radio station runs a holiday cookie exchange and this recipe sounds great.

My husband bought way too much pumpkin pie mix, and since we couldn't imagine eating one more pumpkin pie, I thought I'd try these cookies. Everyone in my family really loved them. They turned out kind of puffy with a cake-like texture. They aren't too sweet, so you definitely need the butterscotch chips. I omitted the orange zest and pecans since I didn't have them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream together butter and sugars, then blend until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin pie mix, eggs, water, vanilla and orange zest to creamed butter and sugar mixture. In a separate bowl, mix flour, soda and salt. Add in stages to the wet mixture. Fold in the butterscotch chips and pecan pieces.
  2. Chill dough at least 2 hours or until firm.
  3. When ready to bake place rounded teaspoons of dough on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375F for 10 - 12 minutes.
