Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This time of year I start craving pumpkin-flavored baked goods. Luckily, Alyssa went on a baking spree recently and made these cookies for us. She used the muffin scoop for the cookies to make giant cookies. We loved them!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

¾ cup granulated sugar (5 ¼ ounces)
¾ cup brown sugar (5 ½ ounces)
3 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 ½ cups pumpkin, canned (14 ¼ ounces)
¾ cup vegetable oil (5 ¼ ounces)
7 eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
¾ teaspoon salt
4 ½ cups pastry flour (1 pound 2 ounces)
1 ½ cups chocolate chips (9 ounces)
1 ¼ cups walnuts, chopped (5 ounces)

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixer bowl mix together sugars, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin, oil, and eggs until well blended. In a separate bowl, blend baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour; combine with pumpkin mix. Mix together until well blended, then add chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by spoonfuls on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or a well-greased pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Makes 5 dozen cookies.

  1. Alyssa, the cookies look delicious! I just made the chocolate crackle cookies from the Lion House cookbook. They didn't turn out at all. I'm still figuring out the humidity factor here in Florida.
