2-Ingredient Pumpkin Cookies!

2 ingredientsWhen I first saw this extremely easy recipe last year, I couldn’t believe my eyes -two ingredients? No eggs, no oil, no water. These are so easy for a child to mix up and help make, so try them soon.                               PUMPKIN COOKIES (preheat oven to 350)

1 -Box Spice Cake Mix

1 -15 ounce can Pumpkin

Directions: Mix with a fork or spoon until most lumps are gone. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Dampen fingers lightly to flatten some. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes, depending on size of cookie. I ice them with cream cheese icing and top with walnuts, but they are great plain. You can add other optional ingredients to the batter, like chocolate chips, cranberries, raisin, or nuts. Yields 36-40 cookies.2 ingredient pumpkin cookies

1-pound ground turkey or beef, cooked with one pkg. taco seasoning. Drain any grease.

1 can whole kernel corn in liquid

1 can diced tomatoes in liquid or same amount of salsa -your choice

Optional: 1 can rinsed and drained black beans. (We don’t use beans.)

You can adjust any amounts of the corn, tomatoes and beans to suit your family’s tastes.

Put all these together in the 9×13 pan and cook at 325 degrees until hot and bubbly, (about 20-30) minutes. Remove from oven and pour corn bread *topping mixture over top and cook until browned, (about 20 minutes). Serve with Shredded Cheddar cheese, and sour cream, olives -whatever you like.

*TOPPING: (1) Box Jiffy corn mix, made with 3/4 cup of milk and one egg. Mix this up while the Tamale Pie is baking.

P.S. I first had this dish at my Gram’s house. She is 98 right now, and reads my blogs. 🙂
