I love Halloween! It's my favorite time of year. Everything is so pumpkiny and orange, not to mention the treats! Let's combine all of that sweetness and eat it! Here's my recipe for the yummiest pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They're so fluffy and soft too.
1 cup (2 Sticks) unsalted butter (softened)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 cups milk chocolate chips
Nonstick cooking spray
Let's get our bake on:
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
Beat butter until smooth. Beat in the white and brown sugars a little at a time so mix is nice and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and pumpkin puree.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Slowly combine the dry ingredient mix with the batter mix. Mix in the chocolate chips.
Scoop the cookie dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets. Don't forget to lick the spoon!
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until edges of cookies are browned. Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheets for about 2 minutes before eating as many as you can stuff into your mouth. I promise, they're that good!
And there you have it! Homemade pumpkin chocolate chip cookies! Easy as pie, err, actually easy as cookies! Enjoy!
