chocolate chip pumpkin cookies
These chocolate chip pumpkin cookies have long been a favorite of mine. They’re a soft, cakey, pumpkin spiced cookie made even better with bittersweet chocolate chips. I made them once for a potluck when I was in college and a boy that I may or may not have had a huge crush on informed me that they were good, but kind of underdone and next time I should cook them longer. No way. I took a bite and confirmed my original take: they were perfect in every way. It was then that I decided that maybe he was the one that was undercooked.
Joseph on the other hand absolutely loves these cookies. Yes, I absolutely ended up with the right guy. If you only like really crunchy cookies, these may not be your thing. If a tiny little pumpkin cake with chocolate chips sounds good to you, then you’re going to love these.
I decided that I was going to make these in addition to the pumpkin gingersnap cookies to take to Philadelphia because I wanted to make sure that we had enough for both my sister and her husband and Joseph’s brother and his family. This recipe is so easy that I figured it would be no trouble, but I had to run to the store to get more butter and all the batches of cookies and only cooking one sheet at a time meant I was constantly in the kitchen dropping dough balls on the cookie sheets and sliding freshly baked cookies onto a cooling rack. All that and you know what? I forgot to bring the cookies on Saturday when we went out to see Joseph’s family and celebrate our adorable niece’s third birthday.
When we got back to my sister’s house that night, there was a dent in the cookie bin that continued to grow as the night went on. These cookies are seriously addictive! But don’t take my word for it, try them for yourself!
