Last month I asked you guys for your favorite cookies. I learned about a bunch that I had never heard of before. Among them, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. It’s unimaginable that I had never heard of these before, being the chocolate chip cookie lover that I am. So, thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you for turning me on to these cookies. Actually thank you – M-J, Jessica, Katrina, Janelle, Low, and Kellie for sending me your recipes (And, anyone I may have left out… sorry.) I couldn’t decide on which recipe to try because they were all different, so I worked up my own inspired by you guys. Then I decided to top them with a maple brown butter frosting… not that these needed anything to make them taste any better. But let me tell you, this frosting was so good, I wanted to eat it all by itself. Okay, I’ll give it to you straight. I did eat quite a few spoonfuls of this maple temptation. So much that I didn’t have enough for all the cookies. Whoops! Anyway, hope you like it, too.
Pumpkin Pecan Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Maple Brown Butter Frosting
You can use an ice cream scooper to get evenly proportioned cookies. Also, see how the chunks are all hidden in the batter? Make your cookies look as good as they taste. Just save some chocolate chunks and stick them right on top of the cookie batter before you throw them in the oven.
They’ll look like these when take them out.
Next up… frost those babies. Oh yes!
Then sink your teeth right in.
Just for fun I wanted to show you this Halloween cupcake-shaped cookie jar I scored at the craft store, Hobby Lobby. It’s so dang cute! I think it was around $15 if you want to run out and get one before Halloween.
