Two Ingredient Cookies

When my family came to visit the other weekend and it was so nice to see them, but it was most full I have ever had my home. When company comes over, food is important (shoot it is always important, lets be real). I don't want to be slaving away in the kitchen the whole darn time.

So the first night I had Kevin grill some steaks and I made a salad and garlic bread. Yum and easy.

Then my sister asked what is for dessert?!
Uhhh...

I look in my pantry and find canned pumpkin. My brain knows that I have seen people use it as a supplement in baking on Pinterest but I couldn't remember how and didn't look. Lame, but true.

I mixed a can with a spice cake mix and made cookies. The dough is a weird consistency and the cookies didn't seem like they were done ever, but trust me I have found 15 min at 350 to be good! I also calculated 72 calories in each cookie since I had 27 cookies in my batch. I thought by looking at them and feeling them that I had really messed up this little kitchen, dessert experiment. But then I bit into them and all thoughts of error went out the window.

But to be fair, I consulted the internet AFTER I made the cookies and this is not something of my own invention. In fact other people who have their claim to fame on the interweb with this recipe recommend a cream cheese frosting. But I am all about mix two ingredients and be done...ain't no one got time for frosting. (Unless you do. Then bring me some!)

Drats and Enjoy!
