I love finding recipes that highlight this tasty bit of goodness. And when it’s added to something that is pretty much perfection already – chocolate chip cookies – what’s not to love.
This delicious treat made its way to me via Pinterest. To be honest, any recipe with pumpkin in the title will usually get my attention, hence the abundance of pumpkin themed posts.
This recipe made about six dozen cookies – we started eating them so fast out of the oven so I didn’t get an accurate count but that sounds about right. The cookies were chewy and the pumpkin flavor was there but not overwhelming. It was the perfect combination. Now I’m off to eat another one. Or two.
Cutler’s Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (recipe slightly adapted from A Bountiful Kitchen)
1 cup butter, softened
3 c sugar
2 c pumpkin
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
6 c self-rising flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
2 c chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a super large bowl, beat butter and sugar together for 3 minutes. Add eggs, pumpkin, vanilla and spices. Mix together until combined.
Add 3 cups of flour and mix together. Add remaining flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix until combined then stir in chocolate chips and fold in completely.
Using a cookie scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets and bake for about 10-12 minutes. Let cool completely on baking sheet before transferring to plate.
