Delicious chocolate chip pumpkin cookies that are moist, chewy, cake-like, and full of pumpkin flavor!
Last week was “P” day in kindergarten and each child was asked to bring a food that begins with the letter “P”. Ruby brought popcorn and was so excited to tell me all the different foods she tried that day. She especially liked the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins that one of her friends brought in. Later that day when I asked her what kind of cookies I should make she immediately replied, “Pumpkin Chocolate Chip!”
I’m not usually a fan of the texture of pumpkin cookies. They don’t flatten out and have a dense, cake-like texture. Lucky for you my cookies are soft and chewy.
These pumpkin cookies flatten, are chewy, and resemble good old fashioned chocolate chip cookies.
Just a bit more on the moist side. I think you’ll like these as much as we do!
