Shelly, I ended up cooking them for 12 minutes at 350. Hubby said they were a little over done for his tastes.

the pumkin size is the small one i believe 15 oz. remenber not the pumkin pie filling
It was hard for me to belive the first i made them. they are very moist . I made them with rasins and i did frost them once with a maple frosting. it was ok but liked them plain. grandkids inhale them. even the picky eater.

Thanks, Pdswife, for the information. I'll keep a close eye on the cookies and be sure to check them before 12 minutes.

Okay, Letscook, you're on. I'm trying the pumpkin spice cookies this weekend. I wonder who comes up with these recipes?? I'll let you know how the cookies turn out! Thanks!!

Hi, auntieshelly-
the mixes were on sale here for 59 cents, so I went kinda nuts and now have about 8 boxes of cake mix on the shelf in the basement.

I will have to revisit this thread when I get a baking jones.

Hi Mudbug ~ I can't believe you bought cake mixes for only 59 cents each!! What a deal!! The lowest I've ever seen them here is 89 cents. The mixes will really come in handy during the upcoming holidays -- you'll be the "cookie queen" !!!!

Question for Babetoo ~ I also made the pumpkin spice cookies, but mine didn't spread like other cake mix cookies. They tasted great and everyone liked them, but they stayed in mounds and were soft and cakelike. How did yours turn out? (I followed the recipe on this site and used a small can of pumpkin and the spice cake mix with additons of pecans, and golden raisins -- no eggs or oil in this recipe.)

I've been using a cake mix recipe for a "fruitcake" cookie for the past couple of years.

Very good-even folks that don't care for fruitcake like these. These use butter flavored crisco for the fat.

Very fragile, delicate, but delicious cookie!!
