Pumpkin Cookies

'Tis the season for yummy fall baking. For me, there is nothing better than a kitchen filled with the scent of freshly baked cookies. This pumpkin cookie recipe is really the perfect recipe for small bakers since there are only three ingredients.

I love baking with my three-year-old because it teaches her delayed gratification and patience, and we all know patience is a virtue. Put a cute little apron on your little pumpkin and let's get baking!

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. pumpkin cake mix
  2. can of pumpkin
  3. 1 cup chocolate chips
  1. Gather your ingredients.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add the cake mix to a large bowl. Demonstrate to your toddler how to pour; guide their hand if necessary.

  3. Then add the pumpkin. As you see, my little sweetie got a little carried away with the cake mix.

  4. Pour in the chocolate chips and stir to combine ingredients. My daughter loved to stir. She did keep trying to taste it, so I had to keep reminding her that it wasn't time for tasting quite yet!

  5. Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes. I let my daughter peer into the oven to see her work in progress!

  6. The best part? Tasting of course!
