There is one thing for sure, I crave Pumpkin Cookies as soon as October rolls around. This year, in an effort to help my waistline, I managed to refrain from baking any until today. Pretty good huh? It was tough. Anyway, I have been making these cookies since I was a wee farmgirl, ok I lived in the city, but I was an aspiring farmgirl. They are cakey, gooey with chocolate and just down right DELISH! Now the trick will be to see how many hours they will last until I need to whip up another batch! You should make some today – and bring me a few! I’m sure mine will be gone lickety split!
|Cream the butter and sugar together.|
|Add in your egg.
Refrain from eating the sugar butter.
Beat to incorporate the egg.
|Mix your dry ingredients together in another bowl with a whisk.|
|Alternate the spiced flour with the pumpkin puree|
|Coming together now.|
|Don’t be fooled by that pretty exterior – this is not the kind of cookie dough you want to eat! Eeek! Much better cooked!|
|Add a cup of chocolate chips.
Eat a few.
Toss a few extra in the bowl.
Eat a few more.
Hide the rest of the bag somewhere where the kids won’t find it.
|Add a teaspoon of vanilla goodness|
