I’ve looked for a great, low-point cookie recipe since the end of October. I saw this recipe a few times and kind of avoided it because it looked too easy to be a tasty cookie, but when my cousin, Liz, posted a recipe for similar muffins on my wall, I figured I would give it a shot!
Boy, oh boy, are they good! Not too much; not too sweet, not too pumpkin-y. They’re just right. They’re soft, pillow-y cookies too, which is nice. You know what else? You could make hundreds of variations depending on the mix, the puree and the chips! I was just giving my girlfriend a breakdown of different things that might be super tasty. Black bean puree is actually quite sweet, so maybe that with a dark chocolate cake mix and a bag of mint chocolate or white chocolate chips would be really good too! Or maybe carrot cake mix with sweet potato puree with cinnamon chips or candied pecans roughly chopped would be good too. Of course, you’d have to figure out the points value based on the different ingredients, but if you’re unsure and don’t have the tools to figure it out, just leave a comment and I’ll figure it out for you!
So here you are – a recipe for the easiest cookie you’ll ever make.
Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies
Servings: 45-74 cookies
PointsPlus Per Serving: 2 points per cookie (any less than 45 and they’re 3 points each; any more than 74 and they are 1 point each)
- 1 box Spice Cake mix, 52 PP
- 29 oz (one big can) pumpkin puree, 8 PP
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (special dark is our favorite!), 51 PP
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2.Mix together the pumpkin and the spice cake mix.
3. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. Put wax paper onto cookie sheets (this makes clean up super easy and also, you can just take the wax paper right off the tray and let them cool without the bottoms continuing to cook and possibly burn.) Spray wax paper with Pam. Spoon onto cookie sheets.
5. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
So easy, so delicious, so very obviously the cookie you should make tonight. They are amazing right out of the oven too, as you can see in this picture!
