easy pumpkin spice cookies

Lately I have had  a hard time with all the sweets around me it will be like this through the end of the year.  Most of the will power and self control I have all year is thrown out the window.  Things I do not even really like I find myself eating because I think it should taste good...  The death of me recently has been the Halloween candy.  I bought a huge bag yesterday at coscto through it up very high in my pantry out of sight and out of reach with out a stool.  If the bag is closed I will not touch it.   BUT my skinny hallow leg husband searched it out yesterday opened the huge bag of chocolaty goodness and  put it right at eye level when you open the door.   So all day yesterday I kept finding myself in the pantry in the dark eating little "fun" sized chocolates. t is so bad..  So then I went and yelled at my husband for tempting me like that....Then made something sweet I could eat guilt free.
  So if you want something sweet this time of year with out all the guilt try these cookies.  They are only 1 Weight Watch point. I love to add dark chocolate chips which probably makes them more points, by that is okay too. I need my sanity and many times that equals dark chocolate :)  The best news is these are so easy to make.  Feeling like a cookie 15 minutes later start to finish you can eat one!!
