Since we were going to a Halloween party, I thought pumpkin cookies would be appropriate. I didn't have a lot of time, so I flipped through the Cookie Bible and picked the first pumpkin recipe I saw.
Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe adapted from the Cookie Bible
Yield: 4 1/2 dozen cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp all-spice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
15oz canned pumpkin
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups (12oz) chocolate chips
|In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Set aside.|
|Cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Add in pumpkin, eggs, and vanilla. Beat until combined.|
|Gradually add in dry ingredients until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips by hand|
|Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on well-greased baking sheets.|
Bake at 375°F for 15 minutes. Cool on pans on wire racks for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to finish cooling.
I hope all of you are staying safe and dry during this crazy weather from Hurricane Sandy!
Love and cookies,
