Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies


I am not someone who is into sweets…or baking. However, when Fall rolls around I want to make pumpkin everything. When the craving for something sweet hits me I will often bake chocolate chip cookies. I don’t often make the traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe but like to change up the ingredients based on my mood and what I have around the house. This recipe came about from my desire to put pumpkin in everything and some pumpkin pie spice that I had on hand.

If you are going to make one pumpkin recipe this Fall I highly recommend giving these cookies a try. Like many chocolate chip cookie recipes, they are easy to make and come together quickly. The pumpkin gives the cookies their golden orange color and the pumpkin pie spice incorporates the quintessential Fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.

You can make a double batch and freeze half for when the craving hits you or for those last-minute potlucks that pop up over the holidays.
