Pumpkin Nut Cookies

1 box butter recipe cake mix
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. vanilla nut extract
1/2 tsp. black walnut extract
3/4 C. canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/4 C. margarine, softened
1/2 C. chopped walnuts


Heat oven to 375°F (350°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheets). Lightly grease or spray cookie sheet.

In a large bowl, beat cake mix, spice, extract, pumpkin, and butter with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute. Stir in walnuts.

On cookie sheet, drop dough by generous tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart.

Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until set and light golden brown around edges. Cool 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely - about 30 minutes. Frost with frosting. Store loosely covered.

For a decadent twist - add 2/3 C. dried cranberries to this recipe - for a rich, hearty cookie no one can resist!
