Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

A couple weeks ago, while I was at work, my sister texted me asking for my delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe. I jumped online and into my Pinterest version 1.0, a.k.a the folder labeled “recipes” in my personal email and began scouring it for the recipe. But it wasn’t there!

I told her it must be at home and after work, looked through my recipe folder but still couldn’t find it. I began to panic. This is my famous recipe. A go to fall recipe that everyone loves! 7 days and a mild panic attack later, I remembered there was a girl on facebook that I talked with about it, well over a year ago. Only problem with that is, I’m no longer on facebook and didn’t know how to get her recipe (that was almost identical to mine).

I sent a 911 email to my friend who I hoped was friend’s with her on facebook, when I decided to reactivate to contact this girl directly. As I’m writing out my covert “I’m on facebook but not really on facebook” message, I thought I’d check my private messages just in case I still had it. Lo and behold there it was, sitting pretty with both of us comparing our recipes.

I texted my sister! I texted my friend! I texted myself! {ok, not really} I was so excited!

I promised work I’d make them for our potluck today and I went to work on them last night. OOh how they’re so good.

I bring you, my cookies.

Let me break it down for you:

em3Here’s everything you’ll need. {milk and eggs not shown}

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix all the wet ingredients together in a larger bowl and slowly add the dry until smooth.
Add all the chocolate chips you desire…then realize it wasn’t enough and add a whole bag more.
Stir with a wooden spoon to combine and plop them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake, remove and let cool.
They are soft cookies. Not your crunchy variety by any means.

Now for the breakdown:

2 Cups Pumpkin
2 tsp Baking Soda
4 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Cinnamon
4 Cups Flour
2 Cups Sugar
2 Beaten Eggs
2 Tbsp Milk
1 Cup Vegetable Oil*
2 tsp Vanilla
6-12 oz Chocolate Chips

Preheat over to 375 degrees.
Combine all dry ingredients together. Combine all wet ingredients. Slowly add dry into wet until blended. Add chocolate chips. Place by the teaspoon size on cookie sheet (non greased)
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let sit, transfer to cooling rack.

*substitutes for vegetable oil (though I’ve only used vegetable oil)
1 C butter or
1 C shortening
these substitutes will require you to grease your cookie sheet, cream the butter or shortening w/the sugar, adding an egg one at a time, then remaining wet, then dry.
{again, I’ve only followed my recipe}

They are so delicious! Have a great weekend, friends!!

Pin It Now!

Who knew that pumpkin & chocolate would go together? I'm still a bit skeptical. You might need to make them for me when we get together to watch that certain season premier, before I can be converted. I am ALWAYS willing to be converted over to new ways to enjoy chocolate. I'm easy, like that.

Gosh I love pumpkin. So are these the cake-y kind of cookies? or just rich and thicky thick? I'm not a fan of cake-y...but these sound delish.
