Cake Batter Cookies & Pumpkin Spice Cookies

I've been on a  cookie making kick lately. I don't think my co-workers are complaining...they've been reaping the benefits!

When I was house-sitting for my parents earlier in September, I rummaged through their pantry to see what I could bake. I was pretty limited, but they did have a box of cake mix, chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips.

My roommate in college used to always make cookies from a box of cake mix, so I Googled the recipe and they turned out really good!

Cake Batter Cookies
1 Box Cake Mix (any flavor)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 cups chocolate chips (I used 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup peanut butter chips)

Mix all ingredients. Using a tablespoon, drop cookie dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes. I prefer mine a little undercooked, because they get firmer once they cool.


I was on the search for Nestle Pumpkin Spice baking chips this season, but couldn't find any at Target or Kroger. Not many stores carry this limited-edition flavor, so I broke down and ordered them on Amazon. They were twice as expensive as a normal bag of chocolate chips ($9/bag on Amazon), but I desperately wanted to try them, so I splurged.


I used the cookie recipe on the back of the bag, and I think they turned out great.


They really taste like a cookie version of pumpkin pie!

The pumpkin spice chips would also be good in the cake batter cookie recipe. I think I'll experiment with that next!

  2. I need to check out Wal-Mart. I went to the Nestle website and you could search for them within a 50 mile radius, but nothing showed up near me! I will definitely try out the two ingredient recipe...thanks for sharing. :)
