Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies is a genius idea and I can’t believe I’ve never made these ever in my life. Sugar Spun Run’s tutorial on YouTube gave me the best idea once I get into my Fall mood. I love chocolate chip cookies, so this would be a great way to incorporate pumpkin into a sweet snack that I already enjoy. This would be a great switch up for desserts rather than making pumpkin bread, pies, and muffins. This is a unique way to have a Fall cookie, and I think a lot of people would be surprised. Honestly, I don’t know how I didn’t know pumpkin chocolate chips were a thing.
First, in a large bowl, combine melted butter, cooled butter, and sugars. Add pumpkin, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and stir well.
Next, in a separate bowl, whisk all of the dry ingredients and gradually add it to the wet ingredients. Then, stir in the chocolate chips until completely combined. Make sure to chill the cookie dough for at least an hour before baking.
Note: blot the pumpkin puree in a bowl by pressing a folded up paper towel to soak up the moisture as much as you can. This is an important step to keep the cookies nice and chewy and not cakey.
