Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

All good things must come to an end. I don’t have to be happy about it, but I have so many other yummy recipes to share with you. So it is time for the last pumpkin recipe for Pumpkin Week. I decided to make something simple, but in my opinion my favorite pumpkin recipe ever. I have a little story to tell you about why I love these cookies so much. In a weird kinda of way these cookies are very dear to me.

In 2010, I lost my grandma, Jaye. She was very sick for a long time. She was diagnosed with Crohn’s and couldn’t eat normal foods. I will never forget one year I went to visit her and decided that I would take some of my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I never cooked or baked when I was in my 20’s and I was so darn proud of these cookies. I just wanted her to taste them and see if she liked them. Even if she couldn’t eat them all, I just wanted to make her proud. Later that week, she called me and said, “Cyndi, guess what?” I said, “what grandma”, cause I had no clue what she was talking about, “I ate the whole bag of cookies you left here with me!” I was beyond shocked. When I tell you that she couldn’t eat, I mean she really couldn’t eat. The fact that she finished about 10 cookies made me ecstatic. Sadly, I was never able to make her more cookies, but just typing this post and eating these cookies makes me think of her. This recipe is for you grams, Jaye Zavits!

These cookies are so moist and soft. They have the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor and the chocolate chips add a nice sweet touch. These cookies are the perfect snack for school, soccer games or just good old dessert. Like I said the simple desserts are sometimes the best. And I strongly think that these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are the tasty pumpkin recipe.

I hope you all enjoyed my 2 Pumpkin Weeks and all the recipes. I have a very tasty recipe coming to you this weekend and I am excited to share it with you all. If you are around this weekend, please come back and check it out. I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpats. Set aside.
  2. Using a stand mixer with your paddle attachment, beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar, until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, making sure that the eggs are beaten in completely. Then add the vanilla and pumpkin puree. Mix until incorporated.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. While the stand mixer is on slowly add 1/3 cup of the flour mixture at a time into the batter, until flour is incorporated. Do not over mix the batter.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips. Scoop the cookie dough batter by heaping teaspoons onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned around the edges.
  5. Let the cookies rest for 2 minutes. Place cookies on a wire rack and let cool. Enjoy!
