Pumpkin Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is nothing like pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. The outsides of the cookies have just a bit of crunch, but when your teeth hit the inside, they are so soft and gooey. To die for. The recipe makes about 24 cookies, and I took them to work, where they were completely gone by 1:00pm. Let me remind you that my office only has 5 people in it. Delicious. Not to mention it makes you want to move your bed into your kitchen and never leave because the smell from the oven is so tantalizing.

Pumpkin Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbsp. pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with non-stick silicone baking liners, or lightly spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin spice; stir to blend.

In another bowl, whisk the sugars, butter, egg white, pumpkin puree, and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in two additions until the batter is very well blended. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonfuls about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets.

Bake 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them stand 5 minutes before removing the cookies from the pans to cool on wire racks.
