Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Cookies

  • 1 15 oz can of Libby’s pumpkin puree
  • 1 box of Betty Crocker spice cake mix


Tip: We used the Chicago Metallic textured aluminum large cookie sheet with great results. For instance, each cookie was perfectly baked even though they differed in size.  In addition, the pan is easy to clean.  You can buy it from Amazon, here.  There are many options of Chicago Metallic bakeware from cake to pie pans, which I have recently switched to for all my baking.
