These Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice Cookies were love at first sight! I first fell in love with them when I saw them on Displaced Housewife’s Instagram post, before I even saw the recipe or tasted them. She created these cookies, and they are incredible. They could be one of my most favorite cookie I’ve ever made to date. Yeah, they’re that good. I’ve given them to family, neighbors, friends, more family, people on the airplane. My kids have devoured them – I almost let them eat them for breakfast. ALMOST. I figured they had pumpkin in them, but then I came to my senses and peeled them a banana.
I have this thing with pumpkin. I love everything pumpkin EXCEPT Pumpkin Pie. It’s just a too much pumpkin, not enough spice, not enough dough, weird textured pie. I’ll reluctantly eat it smothered with ice cream and drenched with whipped cream, but that doesn’t count, does it? Alas, maybe next year I’ll figure out a Pumpkin Pie recipe I can eat like a normal person, with a little dollop of whipped cream and nothing else. I suppose it bothers me that I don’t like pumpkin pie because I like pumpkin everything (else) pumpkin: pumpkin bread, pumpkin gelato, pumpkin scones, pumpkin cookies… and hope you enjoy these pumpkin cookies like I have!
I’ve made these cookies using both sunflower oil, as the recipe calls for, and grape seed oil and they were equally good. I could not taste a difference.
I also made them with semi sweet chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips and I think the pumpkin tastes much better with the semi sweet chocolate chips – but you decide
