Happy Thanksgiving :: Pumpkin Cookies to Drool Over...

I hope by now everyone is relaxing with family somewhere but I have a feeling that most of you are still traveling to your destinations! Get there safely and once you do.... MAKE THESE!

I have been making these for years as soon as the November chill finally sets in.  Ever since a college friends boyfriend made them for our house {senior year we lived with 7 girls... yes you heard right... 7 girls. Before that was 66 girls though so it felt like being alone}.  Anyway after he brought these over I immediately got the recipe and have been making them ever sense.  Cookie doesn't even describe it right... it's like a cookie, cake thing. Whatever it is Betty Crocker... you are one smart women.

I made these Monday night for Southern Boy and to take to work Tuesday.  Southern Boy had initial reservations about them and almost got a back up just in case he didn't like them.  He has turned over to the dark yummy side!  Everyone at work seemed to love them too. And they are kind of ridiculously easy even though they seem like they took all day which is ALWAYS a plus in my book.

box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix
teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
