Pumpkin Spice Cookies

OK...these are so good and they are only 1 point each! They are almost like a personal little cake. You could add cream cheese frosting for a real special treat but that would add another point. Here is the recipe!


Pumpkin Spice Cookies
1 Spice Cake mix
2 egg whites
15 oz pumpkin
1/2 C applesauce
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
(you could use pumpkin pie spice if you have it)
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 C semi sweet chocolate chips

I used my cookie ball scoop and it made 50 cookies. These cookies don't expand much so you can fit quite a few on a sheet. They spread a little bit but they pretty much just turn into little mini muffin tops. The dough is really soft so using the cookie baller what great. You could use a small ice cream scoop too for a larger cookie but then they would be two points. You could also do a lot more chocolate chips but 1/3C makes them have a little treat with out the calories. The cookie is very cakey (if you have ever had pumpkin choc chip cookies from the deli at the grocery store, they are very similar). Make sure to lightly grease the cookie sheet or they will stick. Cook 10-13 minutes until the tops of the cookie feel firm to the touch.

Enjoy! :)
