Today was one of the worst days ever. I’m not going to talk about. Instead I’m going to talk about cookies.
Fact: Cookies make life better.
There’s something I really love about a plate of cookies. No it doesn’t matter what kind of cookies. I just sorta find them pretty.
I gave these away. The next day I received a few texts telling me they were popular with co-workers. I won’t lie, I was sorta kicking myself for giving them away. As I wrote this post, all I wanted was one of these cookies. That’s what happens when you have a stressful day: you want cookies.
From what I recall, they were a little bit cakey (but less so than your average pumpkin cookie, which always seems more like a muffin top to me) and chewy. I’m pretty sure that means they’re good. Cakey but chewy? Done. I want it again.
Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup white sugar
1/2 brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 cup chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Set aside. Cream together butter, pumpkin puree, sugars and egg yolk. Mix in dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in Chocolate chips.
Form dough into golf ball-sized balls and arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden on the edges. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing from baking sheet.
Put on a plate and make someone’s day that much better.
