My Favorite Fall Dessert Recipe

Yep, I’m going there.

It’s barely September and I’m talking pumpkin.

I do apologize…but I just can’t help it.

 

You see, I never really liked pumpkin until last year…

I still can’t be bothered with pumpkin pie or anything that hard core…but pumpkin flavored stuff?  I’m all over that.

 

And these cookies are the best of both.

There is pumpkin in them (and pumpkin pie spice), but they are still most definitely chocolate chip cookies.

Which is a major win all around.

 

Oh, and can I just say that I added some of these new super yummy Pumpkin Spice M&Ms to some of my cookies…just for experiment sake.. and they were perfect!

It’s a really fun adaptation if you can find them. I think they are sold exclusively at Target.

Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yep, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies… Do it.

How to Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Anyhow, let’s get down to details.

I started with 3/4 cup of pumpkin…

And beat that with some butter…IMG_4045I added a bit of pumpkin pie spice to amp up the pumpkin-ness.

IMG_4049And of course chocolate chips…

IMG_4051These cookies don’t require any dough chilling, which is always a bonus!  The pumpkin helps keep them a little “taller”.

Bake them until they are golden around the edges and the tops are just set…Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies | www.cookiesandcups.com
