pumpkin, and spice, and everything nice...

Okay... I have been wanting to try this pumpkin spice cake recipe for a while now. I first heard about the Pumpkin-Spice-Secret from my co-worker and good friend over at Tales From the Fairy Dust... she heard about the Pumpkin-Spice-Secret from her good friend over at Chicago Cuisine... who originally discovered the Pumpkin-Spice-Secret over at PB Fingers.

So what is this brilliant Pumpkin-Spice-Secret, you ask?? It is only the most amazing fall dessert ever... not to mention the easiest dessert ever...

All you need are these 3 ingredients: {1 box of Spice Cake mix :: 1 can of Pure Pumpkin (not to be confused with pumpkin pie filling) :: 1 container of Cream Cheese icing}

Combine the Spice Cake mix with the can of Pure Pumpkin...

Put some elbow grease in it and you should eventually get something that looks like this...

Plop out some big spoonfulls onto a couple of cookie sheets. {I decided to make cookies, but Tales From the Fairy Dust and Chicago Cuisine both did theirs cake-style... whatever suits your fancy.}


Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12-15 minutes. {They should feel slightly firm to the touch.}


Let these bad boys cool down for a while, then slather them up in Cream Cheese icing.

If your feeling a little adventurous, go ahead and give them a little cinnamon shake-down.

Then, find a comfy spot at the table (or counter top) and enjoy your not-so-hard labor.

Go ahead... have another. I won't tell.
