Tonight I have a SUPER easy and YUMMY recipe for you. These are seriously so easy to make it is ridiculous  I’m sure many of you have tried the two ingredient pumpkin cookies ( spice cake + can of pumpkin) … well these are a fun twist on those. I have to say they  turned out  AMAZING! The pudding makes these cookies super soft and moist. No one will ever know they take you five minutes to make. ;)

    These look delicious! My daughter is coming home from college this weekend and I’m planning to make them with her. Also, I’m hosting my very first recipe link party at http://onesleepymom.com/2012/10/14/back-to-reality-recipe-link-party/
    Would love it if you’d join!

    Yummo! I love pumpkin, and happen to have all the ingredients on hand…can’t wait to make these! :0)

    I wonder if I could modify this to make mini loafs! My grandmother surprised me with a mini loaf silicone thing-a-majig that makes the loaves in the shape of pumpkins or leaves! I have never made pumpkin anything and have been wanting to try. This might be it.

    Oh my goodness this sounds amazing! :) Are cinnamon chips a seasonal thing? I don’t remember if I’ve seen those in Kroger.

    • Allison E posted on October 18, 2012 at 10:17 am (#

      Did you pre make the cake mix and pudding as it says on the back of the box or just poured the cake mix and pudding into a bowl and mixed everything together as it says?

  9. Loretta posted on October 18, 2012 at 11:47 am (#

    Sound very good my hubby loves pumpkin

  10. SingleMama posted on October 18, 2012 at 2:35 pm (#

    These look scrumptious! My go to cookie recipe is your one with the pudding mix, everyone raves whenever I use it (even my extremely opinionated father)!

    These cookies look delicious!

      King Arthur catalog out of Vermont carries cinnamon chips.

    Where did you buy your cinnamon chips? I can’t seem to find them this fall. Last year I did buy them at Meijer

  13. Joy posted on October 23, 2012 at 11:55 pm (#

    The cookies look wonderful.

    Just took these out of the oven. Super delicious! Easiest cookie recipe ever. Thanks for sharing.

    I made these last night and oh my gosh were they AMAZING!! I used cheesecake pudding mix and dark chocolate chips! I ate 5 in a row! >< I came downstairs and the whole party had devoured them!!!! So I would call them pumpkin cheesecake choco chip cookie. Will make this recipe from now on!!!!!

  16. Jenalyn posted on October 29, 2012 at 1:33 pm (#

    Where did you find your pudding? I can’t find it anywhere. Is there another flavor that would make a good substitute?

    • cheryl posted on November 14, 2012 at 4:18 pm (#

      Pumpkin spice pudding mix is a limited, seasonal item. I found some today (11/14/12) at Publix. It was located on an end-cap aisle display along with other holiday ingredients. I stocked up with a few extra boxes! :-)
      Hope this helps!

      • cheryl posted on November 14, 2012 at 4:20 pm (#

        i *think* i saw it at walmart too… :-\

    • Jamielyn posted on October 17, 2013 at 9:04 pm (#

      You could use vanilla pudding and add 2 teaspoons of pumpkin spice. :)

  17. Summer Saad posted on October 30, 2012 at 8:41 am (#

    Yes these are really good, I forgot the caned pumpkin so I sub’d 15oz of a mixture of sour cream and butter for the 15oz of pumpkin, they were sooo good! And mixed up a little icing to drizzle on top and I’m telling you they tasted like the best cinnamon roll I ever had!!! No jokin!

    I love this recipe! How many cookies did this make?

  19. cvatsend posted on November 3, 2012 at 7:26 pm (#

    We made these today and they are absolutely delicious…Taste like a bakery style pumpkin cookie….the Pumpkin Spice instant pudding is seasonal….I purchased mine from walmart and also made a 2nd batch with chocolate chips….Cinnamon chips are relatively new, but they are pretty much available in most stores year round….again….bought mine at walmart….I was told the pumpkin spice pudding is only available in November…so buy extra boxes….

    your little gal is adorable,how do I get these recipes to copy easily? Please help.

  21. Nicole posted on December 2, 2012 at 11:08 pm (#

    I loved them plain! Next time I’ll have to try the frosting for a little extra treat.

  22. kip posted on October 17, 2013 at 11:18 am (#

    saw this question but no reply…do you put the cake mix in dry or add eggs and oil per box instructions? waiting on answer to make these…thanks!

    • Jamielyn posted on October 17, 2013 at 9:03 pm (#

      Hi Kip! I don’t add the eggs and oil, the pumpkin in the substitute. :D Enjoy!

      • kip posted on October 21, 2013 at 1:25 pm (#

        thanks for the info..i made these and they were awesome…i made as cookies and had so much batter (and little time) so i made part of the batch in a pan like brownies…..they turned out great too!!!!!!!

      • Jamielyn posted on October 21, 2013 at 2:46 pm (#

        I’m glad you liked them Kip! Ooh, this recipe in brownies would be great too, thanks for sharing!

    Is that parchment paper that you put the cookies to bake on ?

    • Jamielyn posted on October 26, 2013 at 4:25 pm (#

      Yes, I baked mine on parchment paper!

  24. Hoda posted on November 7, 2013 at 4:42 pm (#

    I will try to make P.C.C.cookiaes now, they sound yummy

    • Jamielyn posted on November 8, 2013 at 12:49 am (#

      I hope you enjoy them! Pumpkin and cinnamon are such a yummy combination! :)

  25. Stephanie posted on October 30, 2014 at 9:18 am (#

    Mine ended up very very soft and sticky like pumpkin bread. They aren’t quite cookie-like. Is that normal? They appear to be baked through. I kept them in longer than usual (13minutes at 350 degrees).

    • Jamielyn posted on November 24, 2014 at 8:31 pm (#

      Hi Stephanie! They should be more cookie-like, that is so weird! I’m sorry they didn’t turn out for you!

  26. Liz posted on October 3, 2015 at 2:44 pm (#

    Where can I find cinnamon chips??? Can’t find them anywhere.  Making them with pumpkin spice chips instead and will let you know 

    • Laura Capello posted on October 4, 2015 at 11:54 am (#

      Typically they are by the chocolate chips, but sometimes they do sell out! :)

  27. Emily posted on October 22, 2016 at 4:07 pm (#

    I just made these today and I had a horrible time baking them. I had printed the recipe and after I baked the first sheet they would not get done I came back to your site to see if I missed an ingredient. The only think I can think of now as I go back and look at my ingredients, my cake mix was a little old. Do you think that could be my problem with them not baking?

    • I Heart Naptime posted on October 23, 2016 at 8:59 am (#

      Having a baking mix past it’s expiration date could definitely result in a recipe not working out. Let us know if you try again! :)
