Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Choc Chip Cookies

These cookies are my most favorite fall cookies!!! I have to confess, since September, I have made 10 batches of them! They are so amazingly delicious! I have been asked to make them for Halloween Parties, football tailgating parties, and school parties. I have also made them for my brother in law when he fixed my car, my kids to bring them to daycare for a snack, and just as a treat for us and whoever stops by. IMG_5322

 These cookies have a great combination of Pumpkin, cinnamon and cloves. So as you can imagine, they smell amazing as they are baking.  After smelling these cookies while they bake, you will want to eat them as soon as they are out of the oven. And that is perfectly okay…..I certainly do! (I love them while they are warm, and the chocolate chips are gooey!!) These cookies taste like fall to me. They are a perfect medley of fall flavors with a kick of chocolate. I also have quite the infatuation with the texture of the cookies. They are so soft and cake like, they make you fall in love with them a little bit more with every bite.

But don’t take my word for it. Go ahead and make these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, you know you dying to try them! I promise you will not be sorry you made them.

  1. Great way to start a 24 day food challenge, NOT! However, I will keep this recipe handy for future reference. Cake like cookies are a favorite here. Those words hit the spot!

    • Try freezing them. That way you can eat one without being tempted to take another. I’ve never tried to freeze cake-like cookies but I think it would work. I know it can be done with muffins! Just a thought

    • Michelle, if you like cake like cookes, you will definitely love these cookies! I think they will be well worth the wait of your 24 day food challenge. Let me know how you like them!
      I am going to try freezing a few and see how they do….I think they will do great, just like muffins.
