I have a doozy of a cookie for you today. Pumpkin Chip Cookies. Pumpkin chips? Really? Yes! I found three bags in the holiday baking aisle at Walmart. I was on my last cookie baking trip to the grocery store to complete all my Christmas cookie baking. I snatched them up as soon as I saw them. I figured there was some way I could incorporate them into a cookie! Yes, yes, and yes! The pumpkin ‘n spice chips are delightful and so are these cookies!
I made 20 different Christmas cookies/bars this year for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza and these were the last ones I actually baked. I started with my favorite cookie dough recipe, but for the ad-ins I used Pumpkin ‘n Spice chips and premiere white baking chips (vanilla chip). They were spectacular.
Since I had enough ingredients to bake three batches, I made about 15 dozen cookies. I served them at our annual Christmas celebration, “Christmas in Ovilla.” Our church puts on this free celebration for our community every year. It includes free food, all kinds of rides, bounce houses, water/snow slides, petting zoo and lots of other activities.
I usually organize guys and gals to bring home-baked cookies every year. I think we had about 1,500 cookies and all but a couple dozen were left at the end. Folks would come by in waves and keep taking cookies. Even my Fruitcake Cookies were raved about to the surprise of everyone who tasted them.
I was asking people to try these cookies throughout the evening. Without exception everyone loved them. Even a couple of people who don’t do pumpkin. There were several guys who came back and grabbed three or four to take home with them after they’d sampled one. They really are that good.
You can’t find pumpkin ‘n spice chips any other time of the year except fall/Christmas time frame (unless perhaps you can get them on Amazon). But these scrumptious cookies are ones you really need to include in fall and/or holiday baking when you get the chance.
Not only does the pumpkin flavor pop, but the vanilla chips also add a sugary sweetness that’s utterly delightful. If you’re on the lookout for a cookie to wow your friends, co-workers or family, these Pumpkin Chip Cookies will do it. It’s completely delectable and one that you will want to enjoy over and over again. Give these jewels a try and you’ll see what I mean. Enjoy!
Pumpkin Chip Cookies are heavenly.
You can only find Pumpkin ‘n Spice Chips during fall and holiday baking so snatch those chips off the shelf now and make a batch of these incredibly delicious cookies!
Every bite of Pumpkin Chip Cookies will have you drooling.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients. Toll House makes the Pumpkin ‘n Spice chips. You can find these during the fall months at Walmart.
Soften butter. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, sea salt, baking soda and baking powder.
Mix with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add pumpkin ‘n spice chips and premiere white baking chips (vanilla chips).
Stir with a large spoon until thoroughly mixed.
Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Roll dough into balls and place on prepared baking sheets.
Bake at 350 about 13-15 minutes or until done. I was baking 4 racks at a time with 24 cookies per cookie sheet. My cookies took 20-24 minutes to bake. I rotated cookie sheets every eight minutes.
Pumpkin Chip Cookies are perfect giveaways during the holidays. Everyone loves them.
