Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies

January 2, 2014Teresa

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2013

Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies are another spectacular cookie I think you’ll really enjoy. These luscious pumpkin cookies are filled with all kinds of spices, cheesecake pudding mix and cinnamon chips. Wow, do they ever whip up into one amazing cookie!

I started with the recipe for my Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. Instead of making whoopie pies I’ve been wanting to add cheesecake pudding mix and cinnamon chips to the batter. I was hoping to turn those ingredients into another delicious pumpkin cookie recipe. The result? Heavenly! I loved these delicious cookies.

I had some extra cinnamon chips in my pantry that I’ve been wanting to use up. I also ended up with some leftover pumpkin after making Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. I knew this was a cookie in the making.

I actually intended to use the cheesecake pudding mix and cinnamon chips in the Melt in Your Mouth Pumpkin Cookies. In the end, I followed the directions pretty closely for that recipe. So that meant these ingredients needed to be made into a whole new cookie. Yay!

I’m not sure why everyone loves pumpkin cookies so much. But all four of these recipes (including today’s recipe) have gotten rave reviews everywhere I’ve taken them. I think you and your family will rave over them, too!

This is a delicious, spicy pumpkin cookie with cheesecake taste and cinnamon chips. It has a little added crunch and sweetness that makes it spectacular. Consider making up a batch of these sensational cookies soon before pumpkin supplies wear out. You will love them!

Add vanilla, oil and pumpkin. (You will see from my pictures that I forgot to add the pumpkin here and couldn’t figure out what was wrong with the recipe!)

Mix with an electric mixer until combined.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add cinnamon Chips.

As I was stirring the mixture I kept asking myself what is wrong with this dough? It’s not supposed to be like this. I finally remembered I had forgotten to add the pumpkin earlier. Duh.

Stir ingredients thoroughly with a large wooden spoon.

Roll mixture into balls and place on greased or sprayed baking sheets. You will have to keep your hands moist while rolling in order to prevent your hands from constantly sticking to the dough.

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until done. Cool cookies completely.

These cookies plump up very nicely while baking. They don’t flatten out from too much butter and sugar and too little flour like some cookies do. I wanted to keep eating more of these cookies, but I limited myself to just one before packing them off to friends.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies have a wonderful spicy taste with all the spices in the batter. Plus they have a double cinnamon flavor with cinnamon and cinnamon chips in the batter. We loved the way these cookies turned out.

NOTE: This cookie is really a drop cookie. You can drop with an ice cream scoop to get uniform looking cookies, if desired. I prefer to roll the cookies, but you MUST keep your hands moist while rolling or the dough will stick to your fingers.
