Pumpkin Spice Cookies
A sweet treat with extra-special frosting.
1 package yellow cake mix
½ cup quick-cooking oats
2 to 2-1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 can solid-pack pumpkin (or pumpkin puree)
1 large egg, room temperature
2 tablespoon canola oil
3 cups confectioners’ sugar (or powdered sugar)
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
3 to 4 tablespoons orange juice
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Now take a mixing bowl and combine cake mix, oats, and pie spice. In another bowl, blend pumpkin, egg and oil; beat it till the texture is smooth. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Step 2: Coat the baking sheet with cooking spray and drop by 2 tablespoonfuls onto the sheet. Flatten it with the back of a spoon and bake until the edges are golden brown. Bake for 18-20 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool.
Step 3: For frosting, combine sugar, orange zest, and enough orange juice to achieve desired consistency. Spread over cooled cookies.
