Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated on December 2, 2014

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

We call 'em cakies. :) We used to buy these from Gap Mountain Bread every fall in Troy (now Keene), NH - I miss NH in the fall.

They are simple, delicious and unique, so they make the perfect cookie for a swap or homemade gift.

Pumpkin, a Super Food for All 12 Months of the Year

These 125 recipes celebrate the varied ways that pumpkin can enhance a wide range of dishes, from beverages, starters, and snacks to soups, salads, main courses, and, of course, pies, cookies, breads, and cakes. Whether starting from the whole pumpkin (which, Stovel shows, is easier than many may think) or from canned pumpkin (a fine alternative), cooks will be surprised by the variety of ways they can use the entire fruit, including blossoms and seeds, as well as the pulp itself.

 

Our Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cakies Recipe

Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies

"Canned pumpkin puree gives these cookies a tender, almost cakelike texture. Store them in layers divided by parchment paper in an airtight container up to three days. "

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin-pie spice

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 can (15 ounces) pure pumpkin puree

  • 1 bag of dark chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin-pie spice, and salt; set aside.

  2. Using an electric mixer, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg; beat until smooth. With mixer on low speed, alternately add flour mixture in two parts and pumpkin puree in one, beginning and ending with flour mixture; mix just until combined (do not overmix), fold in the dark chocolate chips.

  3. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto two baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake until puffed and edges are golden, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets once during baking. Immediately transfer cookies to wire racks, and cool completely.

Recipe modified from Chocolate-Glazed Pumpkin Cookies - Martha Stewart Recipes

(I'll be honest, I just melt the butter, mix it with the sugar and wet ingredients, then stir everything together. I'm lazy. It's easy. And they still come out great IMO.)
