Pumpkin Spice Cookie Recipe

These semi-homemade pumpkin spice cookies only require five ingredients. They’re perfect for baking in the fall, especially as a holiday activity.  Spice cake mix can be used if a stronger spice flavor is desired.


  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 14 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 small egg
  • 1 (15 oz.) can of pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice (add more for stronger spice flavor)

If spice cake is used for this recipe, reduce or omit the pumpkin pie spice.

Pumpkin Cookie Ingredients


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350º F.
  2. Mix the pumpkin puree, vegetable oil, and egg in a large bowl.
  3. Stir in thepumpkin pie spice.
  4. Add the cake mix.
  5. Mix the ingredients until thoroughly mixed.
  6. Spray non-stick baking spray onto baking sheet(s).
  7. Place the cookie dough in rounded tablespoons onto baking sheet(s) about an inch and a half apart.
  8. Bake the cookie dough in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until the centers are set.
  9. Let the cookies stand for 2 minutes.
  10. Move the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Rounded tablespoons of the cookie dough will yield medium-sized cookies. Using rounded teaspoons of cookie dough will yield smaller cookies. (The baking time should be adjusted according to the size of the cookies.)  Adding a slice of bread to the bottom of the cookie jar or sealed container will keep the finished cookies soft.
