Hello autumn. I know it's still something like 90 degrees in Tucson, but I am willing for autumn to come. Year round, Doug loves Pumpkin anything, but especially pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I love making them (I mean, before I started working at home, I did manage a bakery) and I especially love the way they make our house smell! Oh, and they taste pretty amazing too!
Here is the recipe I live and die by.
1 cup canned pumpkin (12oz)
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients well, adding the flour and chocolate chips last. You can add nuts if you'd like, but I don't like them, so we don't ever have nay in our house. I also add a dash of nutmeg to the mix, but that is also a personal preference.
Drop by the spoonful about an inch apart on greased and sugared cookie sheet. Sugar tops and bake for 10-12 minutes at 350F degrees. They should swell a little and firm.
Since it's getting closer to that time of the year, I'm sure I'll be baking a lot more, and sharing a lot more of my favorite recipes. Can't wait to start baking in my new kitchen!! The countdown begins.
