1 box spice cake mix
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon Chef Meg's Pumpkin Spice Blend
2 tablespoons flax seed, ground
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons skim milk
For this recipe, you want pure canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix, which contains spices and sugar.
The photo shows these cookies without icing.
Combine the cake mix, applesauce, pumpkin, ground flax and spices.
Beat at medium speed using a hand mixer for 3 minutes. Stop the mixer and scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl using a plastic spatula.
Continue to beat for 1 minute.
Use a silicone pan liner or spray a baking sheet with pan spray. Drop the batter one heaping tablespoon at a time onto the prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes or until springy to the touch.
Cool on a wire rack.
To make the icing, soften the cream cheese by placing in a food processor and mixing until smooth or placing in a bowl and whipping using a hand mixer. Add the sugar and the milk and mix well to combine.
Dip each cookie into the icing.
