Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

October is my favorite month. Halloween is my favorite holiday and today is the one year anniversary of my recipe blog, StreamingGourmet – The Blog and my culinary videosharing website StreamingGourmet. To celebrate, I’m kicking off a month of daily pumpkin recipe posts. Follow StreamingGourmet on facebook (look to your right) and you won’t miss a single recipe.

Today’s recipe is for a fluffy pumpkin cookie with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Since the recipe contains both baking powder and baking soda, the cookie dough dough puffs up to make a soft, cakey cookie. The interplay between pumpkin pie flavors and the chocolate chips is surprisingly yummy. I think you’ll be seeing a lot of chocolate/pumpkin pairings this month.

    Had a go at this recipe with a few modifications (couldn’t find canned pumpkin around here in the UK so used cooked fresh) and it was a big hit with the family and friends.

    Pumpkin is still very much underrated here so I was pleased to be able to do my bit to push the boundaries.

    The mixture was a little wet so after a few cookies onto the tray I put the rest of it into muffin cases. Cookies and muffins from the same mix – magic.

    Now scanning your site for my next pumpkin attempt. Thanks for all the ideas!

    I made these this past weekend but included double the amount of chocolate chips and added 2 cups of walnuts, too. They turned out so well! I had to bake mine a few minutes longer than the recommended 15 but they were fantastic and well appreciated by my pumpkin-loving friends. Thanks for another great recipe!
