Pumpkin. I know everyone this time of year can’t wait to sip on a Pumpkin Spice Latte, but me, I would rather be baking with some pumpkin. I love the comforting taste of pumpkin baked with warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and clove and the moist texture you always get when you add it to your favorite baked goods. I was craving some chocolate chip cookies yesterday and as I got all of my ingredients out on my kitchen counter, I had an idea! Add pumpkin! These delicious fall inspired Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies were not only moist and tasty, but they were really easy to make too!
This cookie dough comes together quickly. After I blended all of the ingredients in my mixer, it was time to add the chocolate. Yum! I decided to add dark chocolate chips to this recipe instead of my usual semi sweet. I wanted a richer flavor, and for some reason, the dark chocolate chips seem to be larger in size than regular chocolate chips. No problem… more chocolate in every bite is never an issue for me!
For the first 2 dozen cookies, I used my cookie scoop to make sure all of the cookies were the same size. They always come out nicely when I do this, but sometimes I like a more rustic looking cookie. For the next 2 dozen cookies I just used a large spoon and dropped the dough onto the parchment paper. They didn’t all look perfect, but I kind of liked them that way! Whichever way you prefer, either will leave you with yummy cookies!
My children couldn’t wait to have one of these cookies warm and fresh from the oven along with a big glass of cold milk. Treating my family to these cookies for dessert last night was such a great way to start off the weekend. We have rain and snow in the forecast for the next few days, so I guess we’ll just have to stay inside, get cozy, watch movies and eat these cookies! Sounds good to me! Have a wonderful weekend!
