You know it’s going to be a good recipe when the title is so long I can’t even use my normal “Monday Morning Mmmm” with it! And, really, I’ve begun believing that anything with chocolate and pumpkin is a good thing!
Now, don’t yell at me! I made – and ate – these cookies before I started eating low-carb last week! As a matter of fact, I made them the day before so I could eat them without guilt before embarking on my [probably temporary] life without sugar.
And eat them I did.
I can’t be blamed. They were so good! And no, that’s not just the carb withdrawal speaking. Full of flavor (cinnamon! and chocolate! and pumpkin! Oh my!) and fluffy like a cake, these cinnamon and chocolate chip pumpkin cookies are possibly my new favorite cookie.
And I’m not alone. I took them to our small group on Sunday night, and the bulk of more than five dozen cookies disappeared quickly. I left a couple behind at our friends’ house for their boys, and I got a phone call first thing Monday morning. Apparently 3-year-old Evan was so excited for his morning snack that he asked his mom to call and tell me!
I stocked up on canned pumpkin back in October, so I’m going to make these again . . . as soon as I’m on speaking terms with sugar again. And have some friends to share them with. (The recipe makes a TON, so keep that in mind when you make them yourself!)
Cinnamon & Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies
Source: Keep it Sweet Blog
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
3 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie seasoning
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup cinnamon chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together butter and sugars, then add in eggs, vanilla and pumpkin. In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, baking soda and pumpkin pie seasoning. Combine two mixtures and mix well, then add chips. Drop spoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Yields 5-6 dozen delicious cookies.
