#46 Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies

These are low fat, easy and taste wonderful. If you have ever been to a Weight Watchers Meeting you have probably been given this recipe, but make them and no one will ever guess they are low in calories.
The Ingredients:
One box spice cake mix (any brand will do)
One 15 oz can pureed Pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix, but plain ol' 100% pure pumpkin)
1 cup chocolate chips (I love using the really dark chips for this recipe)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place parchment paper on cookie sheet.
Empty cake mix into bowl. Open pumpkin can and dump pumpkin in with cake mix. Mix throughly with a spoon until all ingredients look wet.
Add Chocolate Chips, throw in a few more if you like.
Spoon onto cookie sheet by large dallops and bake about 12 to 15 minutes. They might look a little underdone but they will be fine. Let cool and then get ready to feast!

Makes about 2 dozen large sized cookies and beware - they disappear quickly.

I made these a little while ago and I thought they tasted really good but I had a texture problem with them. They were sticky and almost slimy. Does that mean I probably did not bake them long enough or should I try adding some flour next time?
