I've been getting on these obsessive ingredient kicks lately. You remember the peach recipes and I had a few huckleberry posts too. Currently I'm embracing the fall cliche that is pumpkin everything. Food Network did an excellent job on these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I even used them to meet some awesome neighbors across the street!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt (can use less if you're using salted butter)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 cups chocolate chips
1) Preheat your oven to 350 and spray cookie sheets with non-stick spray
2) Cream butter until soft then slowly add sugars until fluffy. Add one egg at a time until well mixed. Now, dump in the vanilla and pumpkin and beat until incorporated.
3) In separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg). A little at a time, mix in with wet ingredients. Once flour is in, stir in the chocolate chips.
4) Put dough on cookie sheets by the tablespoon. These don't spread out too much so don't worry about them running into each other. Bake for 15-20 minutes (mine only took 15) or until edges are browned. The tops won't get very brown. Take out and let cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes then put on cooling rack.
Make a plate for a neighbor & enjoy!
