#weliketoeat – Pumpkin-Cinnamon Chip Cookies
Happy Friday, y’all!
As I’ve mentioned, I love to bake & cook and both Jon & I like to eat, so I try a LOT of recipes. After discovering a handful of seasonal ingredients, I decided to throw them together and see what happened. Amazingness happened. Since it’s the first Friday in October & it is officially fall/autumn, I thought I’d share this fantastic recipe with you!
Pumpkin-Cinnamon Chip Cookies
2-1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ginger
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup [2 sticks] butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 bag Nestle Pumpkin Spice Chips
1/2 bag Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips
1 box Jell-O Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding
Preheat oven to 375°
Combine flour, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon & pudding mix in a medium sized bowl.
Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, & vanilla in a large bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Slowly beat in dry ingredients.
Stir in chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until crispy around the edges. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes before moving to wire rack or paper towels. Cool completely and enjoy!
I have found that it’s best for the butter to be closer to room temperature than cold-out-of-the-fridge. It seems to mix a little better and makes a chewier cookie.
I use an ice cream scoop to make my cookies instead of rounded tablespoons. I like uniformity and I really like big cookies.
The chips don’t exactly melt like you might be used to with a chocolate chip. They do however, leave little explosions of flavor in your mouth when you bite into them. You can certainly use more than half the bag. And if the whole bag of cinnamon chips fell in while you were adding them, it wouldn’t be the worst thing ever. I may or may not know this from experience. 🙂
The pudding isn’t necessary to the ingredients, but it definitely adds something and makes the texture of the cookie super soft.
Seasonal ingredients are listed in orange. I found the Nestle Pumpkin Spice Chips at Target, the Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips at Walmart [but have seen them at Target & Giant Eagle] and the Jell-O Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding Mix at Giant Eagle.
Be sure to let me know what you think if you try them. I was really, really happy with the way they turned out and have already stocked up on the seasonal ingredients so that I can make them a few more times this year.
