A large can of pumpkin puree was getting way too comfortable on my pantry shelf…
I guess you know what happened next…Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I have to say I’ve never had pumpkin cookies or anything pumpkin before I came to US. I’m still not too keen on pumpkin pie, but I love pumpkin cupcakes and pumpkin cookies.
I decided to accessorize plain pumpkin cookies with some chocolate chips and let me tell you, these are so good, you’ll be reaching for a second one before you finish the first one, that is if your friends don’t get them faster.
2 cups (approximately 260 grams) all purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/2 cup (120 ml) oil ( canola oil or corn oil)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup (215 grams) canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
In a large bowl, sift or whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, and salt.
In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the eggs and sugar until light, doubled in volume, mixture will be pale color. Beat in the oil, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree. Add the flour mixture and beat just until incorporated. Add chocolate chips, and mix just until combined. Using 1/4 cup of batter ( I used a small a small cookie scoop) place small mounds of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches (5 cm) apart.
With the back of the spoon dipped in water smooth the cookie drops if necessary.
Bake for about 15 – 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cookie comes out clean.
Rotate baking sheets in half time.
Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
These are wonderfully soft and really delicious.
These cookies are going to be a hit at your Halloween Party too..
Few weeks back I was admiring Callye’s Duck Toy cookies. Such a clever design and beautiful, beautiful execution. I only wish I was a kid again and my mom would let me play with my food… Though I wasn’t really looking for a duck cutter I scored one in a large estate sale. Most people look for furniture and…
As you may have noticed I’ve been making lots of apple treats and today is no different. I made delicious Apple Plum Butter. I’ve seen people eating it with bread ;I like it alone, or I’ll let you on a little secret, dip/dunk some ladyfinger cookies in and let them soak a bit;…
I’ve been seeing a lot of elephants on instagram lately and these magnificent animals inspired me to make these colorful cookies. Still in the midst of Winter I needed a pop of color. Something bright and full of energy and light. I haven’t really played with painting on cookies much and it seems to…
After last month’s Princess Video Collaboration I thought I’d stick with the princess theme for one more post, making a mini piped chocolate princess tiara and decorating a cupcake with it. I made an easy to follow video tutorial on how to make the chocolate tiara, and also a full cupcake assembly. This was my…
My recipe for these is slightly different, but I agree: They're the best–and for me, an autumn tradition. Once I've made my first batch of these, I know it's fall. 🙂
I guess it is a good thing I put them all in the freezer..actually I'm loving them frozen too. I love lemon flavor so I might still dip them in lemon icing. Yum. Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
I love pumpkin cookies! I make them with a lemon icing on top, but I will definitely have to try this version. Yum!
