Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

Like so many other people, this time of year makes our family crave all things pumpkin. So Lisa is always coming up with different recipes that somehow incorporate pumpkin.One of her creations this year is her pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies and let me just say, they’re amazing!

To start, preheat your oven to 375° and spray two cooking sheets.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 cup pumpkin (we cheated and used canned pumpkin)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice (this will give the cookies a slight pumpkin taste but if you prefer them to have a stronger pumpkin flavor we recommend adding 3 1/2 tsp)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp milk
1/2 cup of oil
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
OPTIONAL: 1/4 cup pecans or walnuts

Add the baking soda to the milk and stir until it is completely dissolved. Set aside.

Combine the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a bowl and set aside.

Add pumpkin, sugar, oil, and egg to mixing bowl and mix on a low speed.

While mixing on low add in the baking soda mixture and add in the flour mixture a little at a time. Mix well.

Once everything is mixed and there are no clumps stir in the chocolate chips and vanilla (this is when you would also add the nuts). Pumpkin pie spice cookies

Spoon out tablespoon sized portions of the cookie dough onto a cookie sheet two inches apart.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until bottom edges are brown.

Enjoy!
