mrs. in love with fall

i absolutely love love love fall. 

yesterday we went home and the colors around my house are more incredible than i can ever remember them being (i'm sad i didn't get a picture)
but not only do i love the colors but i love the weather, the smells, the warmth inside and mostly everything pumpkin!

i love pumpkins and even more than that pumpkin cookies. last night after getting home i decided i needed to make the traditional pumpkin cookies for the first time this season.
my great friend megs taught me how to make the easiest and yummiest pumpkin chocolate chip cookies when we were roommates a few years ago. every time i make them i think of her! love you megs!

anyways they are so simple but yet so good i decided to share the love....

simple pumpkin chocolate chip cookies
these are the ones i made last night...yum!

1 box spice cake mix
1 can pumpkin (i ususally get the larger can and use only half)
1 bag chocolate chips (i like the bigger chocolate chips best!)

mix spice cake mix and pumpkin together
after those two are all mixed add chocolate chips (as many as you like)

bake at 350 for about 9-10 minutes.
yep, i'm seriously it's that easy!
it makes a ton of cookies, i sometimes make smaller ones if i'm going to share....last night i made bigger ones for the mr.

and just a warning they may not look the prettiest but the taste great!

give them a try and let me know how they go!
