Recipe by Chickiegirl

I found this recipe on the Country Door website and since I love pumpkin cookie recipes, this was very different from any I had seen before. I am putting it on zaar for safe keeping.

These turned out to be pretty good cookies. I only had a 15.25 oz cake mix, so I added enough flour to reach 18 oz. I omitted the oil and only added about 11-12 oz of pumpkin which I wanted to use up. I realized after the fact that I could have left out the extra flour since I didn't have as much pumpkin as the recipe called for, but it was too late because I had mixed the dry ingredients. Instead of frosting I added in a cup of Nestle Holiday Chips (red and green vanilla chips mixed with chocolate chips). I didn't want puffy cookies, so I dipped a glass in sugar and flattened the cookies until the glass was pressing the chips into the cookie sheets. I used a leveled off #40 scoop (.75 oz) and got 45 cookies. They were done baking at 11 minutes.
