And one of my favorite times of year is upon us. The leaving are changing colors and making there way to the pavement. The rain should be coming soon and it's no longer ghastly hot outside. With fall comes pumpkin everything which I never complain about. Trader Joes is my favorite place to shop this time of year because they have everything from pumpkin ravioli, to pumpkin cream cheese, to candied pumpkin seeds. I just can't get enough of it! And as I read my last blog post it is not so different from this one... raving about fall, what can I say!
So of course with the pumpkin frenzy I had to make something of my own. Pumpkin cookies with chocolate chips, couldn't leave that second part out could I?? I didn't take pictures during the process of making these cookies but they are so easy that I'm sure you won't have any problems!
First off I want to acknowledge a new blog I've found called Two Twenty One where I found this amazing recipe that I will be using year round now that I've discovered it.
There's really not many tips I can give for this recipe because it was just so straight forward and easy. One thing that I did tweak was that the recipe only calls for cinnamon and I used pumpkin pie spice instead which gave it that extra oomph but totally up to you.
This recipe makes 18-24 cookies.
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. milk (I used almond)
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour
1.5-2 cups chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a medium bowl, combine oil, pumpkin, sugar, egg, and vanilla and whisk until combined.
3. In small bowl combine baking soda and milk and stir into pumpkin mixture.
4. In another medium bowl, combine spices, flour, baking powder, and salt.
5. Combine pumpkin mixture and dry ingredients until uniform.
6. Fold in chocolate chips to desired amount.
7. Place dollops of cookie dough onto pre-greased cookie sheet (no need to space out a lot, I didn't find they expanded outwards much).
8. Bake for 12-13 minutes, allow to cool, and enjoy!
Happy baking y'all!!
