Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Being that yesterday was the first day of fall, doesn’t it just make sense to have one of my favorite fall recipes on the blog today. I have been looking forward to this recipe for weeks. This recipe is 3 years in the making. 3 years of testing failing & just returning to our tried & true, but expensive, allergen free cookies. But, I FINALLY got it. After years of bitter, burnt, too thick, too thin, too doughy, too rich, blah recipes…finally one that worked & was devoured by my family [& me…because I am by far my toughest critic].

These cookies are like soft little pillows of pumpkiny goodness. It took a lot of self-control not to eat an entire baking sheet of them when they first came out the oven. There’s a little spice from the nutmeg & cinnamon, just enough to really taste the pumpkin. The chocolate & pumpkin pair perfectly together too. Sweet, but a little savory too. Plus they are free from many major allergens & are gluten free…plus this recipe makes 5 dozen cookies. They actually lasted for 4 whole days in our house. But today….I need to make more. So as you read this, just know that is what I am doing, lol!

Set in fridge for 20-30 minutes to allow batter to set back up.

Preheat oven to 375

Using a 1 inch cookie scoop, level off scoop & drop cookies on to greased baking sheet.  (This batter does not spread much)

Bake on middle rack for 9-12 minutes (always start with 9 & work your way up if you need to- batter also does not brown much, if they start to brown remove them)

Allow them to cool for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a baking rack.
