I found this recipe online a couple of years ago and loved it. These cookies are very moist and delicious. They aren't at all "pumpkiny" and not too sweet.
- 2 1⁄4 cups flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 3⁄4 cups canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 -1 1⁄2 tablespoon milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Combine flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl.
- Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in canned pumpkin, eggs and vanilla.
- Gradually beat in flour mixture.
- Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
- Drop rounded tablespoons onto greased cookie sheets.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned on edges.
- Let sit for a few minutes then cool on a wire rack.
- Drizzle with Vanilla Glaze when cookies are completely cooled.
- Vanilla Glaze: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Add less or more milk depending on the consistency you want.
These cookies are moist, tender & delicious! As a personal preference, I used pecans instead of the walnuts. My problem was with the glaze - it made the cookies soggy and messy. My hubby thought the cookies would be good with a cream cheese frosting while I think they would have been just fine without any glaze or frosting at all.
I just made these cookies and they are so good! Very soft and just the right amount of pumpkin and the chips and nuts are just right! Thanks for posting!
I'm reviewing the glaze for this recipe. It couldn't be easier - came together in a snap with items I always, always, always have in the pantry. It was a delicious topping on Mbatata (Sweet Potato) Cookies. Thank you so much for posting!
