Pumpkin Spice Cookies/Cupcakes
1 box Duncan Hines spice cake mix
1 can pureed pumpkin
(seriously, that's it)
Mix the cake mix and the pumpkin together until well blended. At this point, you can drop spoonfuls of the batter on a cookie sheet, or if you are like myself and don't have one, you can put them in a lined muffin pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes for cookies, 15-20 minutes for cupcakes. I checked on the cupcakes every 5 minutes or so, inserting a toothpick, and when the toothpick came out clean, I removed the cupcakes from the oven. I think it was at about 20 minutes.
PBF made her own cream cheese frosting, but I'm not a huge fan of cream cheese frosting or of making my own for that matter. I just used Duncan Hines vanilla frosting and it worked like a peach. Bonus points for being lazy.
I have the supplies to make this pumpkin spice smoothie and have been wanting to make it for about a week now but haven't done it yet. I think that will be my goal for this evening. I'll let you know how it goes. I can't imagine it being anything but delicious so hopefully I am not disappointed.
I've kind of been down in the dumps lately. I don't know what my deal is but I've just been feeling a little more negative than usual. I hate feeling like this because I know it affects how I interact with people. With my job, asking people to raise money for blood cancer research, you really have to be nice and smiley and sunshine and butterflies all the time, so when I'm in a negative mood, it's a little hard to turn on the charm. Shocking! I tend to be more sarcastic in this mood, which can turn people off if they aren't used to my biting tongue. I really hate people thinking I'm a negative person because I'm generally not. I swear!
