I've come across quite a few recipes that were a bit complicated and required so many ingredients. This recipe is simple and delicious- and it's my favorite.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 2 dozen cookies
- 1 Cup canned pumpkin
- 1 Cup white sugar
- 1/2 Cup vegetable oil (I used coconut oil and it tasted fine)
- 1 egg
- 2 Cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. milk
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 2 Cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips because it's what I had on hand-- still came out delicious!)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (or 175 degrees C).
- Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg.
- In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in.
- Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and mix well.
- Add vanilla and the chocolate chips.
- Drop by spoonful on greased (or parchment-lined) cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.
- Cool for a couple of minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to wire cooling rack.
The cookies come out moist and soft. And you can't go wrong with that pumpkin + chocolate combo. Be warned-- they're addicting!
