Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Cookies are going to be the end of my affinity for skinny jeans. They’re so cute and small tempting me. I tend to indulge, losing track of how many I’m actually eating. I don’t have any self control around desserts. Never had. Never will. I choose to focus on balance. Hence why I was having a green smoothie for dinner. It is what it is.

What these cookies are is what we’re here to talk about. They’re soft and chewy just the way I like my cookies. They’ve got just a hint of pumpkin in them with the added oomph of spice.  Pumpkin pie spice, because spice is nice.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

We based this recipe on our wildly popular WHISKEY BROWNED BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. The secret to getting those soft and chewy bakery style cookies that own my cookie loving heart is to let the dough chill. Yes I know, there’s no instant gratification but the end result is worth it. Overnight is best.

Plan on making the dough the night before and baking it the following evening. If you absolutely can’t wait (I get it, I want my cookies when I want my cookies), a minimum of 4 hours chill time is needed.

Because I like to sandwich these beautifies between a slathering of homemade BUTTERCREAM I use a small cookie scooper. What? If you’re going to eat dessert, you might as well eat dessert.

I get 12 balls of cookie dough to a sheet pan. I also only bake one pan at a time (back to that no self control). This way I have more dough the following day. We all know how good freshly baked warm cookies are. Amiright?
