Hi and happiest Friday to you!!!
Cookies and coffee anyone? Or cookies and milk? :)
Yesterday I did some baking and made my most very favorite pumpkin cookies. If you like butterscotch and pumpkin pie spices, you will LOVE these cookies. If you aren't a butterscotch person, you can use white chocolate chips instead which are equally as delicious. This cookie has an interesting texture - similar to that of a whoopie pie I think.
I stopped drinking coffee for awhile, but the side effects were pretty awful. Even drinking black tea as a substitute didn't work. Shall we say addiction? ;) Anyway, I'm back to my 2 mug a day creature comfort... I just need to make sure I have protein for breakfast to balance it out.
I used a 1 tablespoon cookie dough dropper to get somewhat of a uniform cookie size. And I slightly dampened a small glass, dipped the bottom in sugar and pressed down on the dough to flatten them out a bit before baking.
They are sooo yummy! I hope you try them!
Here is the recipe...
Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup natural sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 and 1/2 cups butterscotch or white chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and the sugars. Beat in the pumpkin puree and vanilla extract. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, including the spices.
Add the the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until incorporated. The batter will be on the thick side. Fold in the chips and bake for 12 minutes or until cookies edges are lightly browned. Let cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
Have a great weekend!!!
