Please excuse me! This is so embarrassing. I meant to tell you about these delicious cookies. They are pumpkin. And chocolate. Of course.
I really love pumpkin things. Most especially in autumn. Pumpkin soup, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, and pumpkin-shaped candy. But it seems like, come Christmas, with it's dazzling candy canes, sugar cookies and wassail, I plum forget about pumpkin. Ya know? Well I'm bringing pumpkin back into our lives this winter season. With these cookies. Also, next time you see Evan, would you thank him for the flattering photos up above? Skiing makes me feel pretty.
Pumpkin Chocolate-Chip Cookies:
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ground cloves
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. unsalted butter, room temperature
1 c. sugar
1 large egg
1 15 0z. can pumpkin puree (or 1 3/4 c. of the real stuff)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together all dry ingredients.
Using an electric mixer, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, beat until smooth. With mixer on low speed, alternately add flour mixture and pumpkin puree. Mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips with a spoon (or if your feeling daring, use the mixer).
Drop dough onto cookie sheets and bake for 15-20 minutes, until puffed and edges are golden.
