What an honor!  Each month I will be sharing with you a recipe and something fun and crafty.  My son and I have dreamt up something very fun and Halloween-y to share with you soon, so stay tuned!  As for today, I am excited to share with you my 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Cookies recipe.  So easy, but so yummy!

I got this recipe from a friend years ago when I was still a single gal in college, and I have been making it every fall since that time.  I loved it for its convenience and simplicity as a busy college student, and I love it for the same reasons as a busy mom!  It is even simple enough for you to allow your young kiddos to help, or to allow your older kiddos to make independently!

To make this recipe you will only need three ingredients: a can of pumpkin, a box of spice cake mix, and a cup (or so) of chocolate chips.

Dump your three ingredients into a bowl and mix well.

Now simply scoop spoonfuls of the batter onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees!

Afterward, if you’re lucky, you can enjoy them with your cute sous chef.  Isn’t my sous chef just the cutest thing ever?!  He is my oldest, and he loves to cook and do projects with mom while his baby sister is sleeping.

I was so excited about this post until I got to the grocery store and couldn’t find “Spice” cake mix! I am writing from Canada, but what stores sell it in the States? I might just have to ask a friend to send me some!
