We take this brief break from a fun day of purging and cleaning to bake some delicious treats...pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, to be exact!
My cousin, Emily, gave me this delicious recipe, and I baked a batch of them for Thanksgiving at the in-law's, and they were a hit! Moist, chocolatey, and just overall yumminess all around. So of course, I have to make them for my family, too, for a little bit of Christmas cheer.
I promised many of you that I would also post the recipe to share so that you, too, can share in the deliciousness, so here goes nothing!
2 cups sugar
1 cup of softened butter
15 oz can of pumpkin puree
2 tsp of vanilla
4 cups of flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
What you need to do:
Preheat oven to 375
Mix sugar, butter, pumpkin and vanilla together in large bowl
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and cinnamon together
Stir in the flour mixture into the creamed mixture
Stir in the chocolate chips
Drop by tsp onto an ungreased baking sheet
Bake 12-15 minutes
Enjoy! (after they cool, of course, but they are pretty tasty when warm)
I don't have a finished product shot yet, but as soon as I do, I'll post it so you can see what they are supposed to look like. They do end up making a lot, but trust me, they go quickly!
