Iced Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2021
Iced Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are awesome. Really! These lovely cookies combine my favorite Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe with my favorite icing recipe. The outcome is spectacular. I sprinkled a little cinnamon over top of each one. We loved, loved, loved them!
We have been busy, busy, busy making Christmas cookies since the beginning of October. My upright freezer is almost completely packed. I’ve made 11 different kinds so far with 200 being the least for any batch. Some batches had over 500 cookies! We plan to give them away or ship them to family and friends around mid-November. I try to make a variety of cookies each year so all of them aren’t chocolate. Or have too many with nuts. Or too many the same flavor or style. You get the idea.
These cookies are soft but having the icing makes them even better, in my opinion. You can never get too much sugar, right? Anyway, these Pumpkin Cookies have it all! Chocolate Chips, icing and a delicate spicy flavor that doesn’t overwhelm the cookie. They’re terrific for this year’s holiday baking if you’re still trying to decide what to make. In the blink of an eye, your whole batch will disappear. 🙂
We loved these Iced Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Every bite will knock your socks off!
These are great treats to bake up for the holidays or fall baking.
These amazing cookies will have you drooling in no time!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the cookie.
Soften butter. (We usually leave the butter out on the kitchen counter over night). Add sugar, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder, salt and pumpkin.
Mix with an electric mixer until thoroughly mixed.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add chocolate chips.
Stir well to combine.
Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Using a small cookie scoop, drop dough onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake at 350 approximately 15 minutes or until done. Rotate cookie sheets on racks about half way through baking time.
I used these ingredients for the icing.
Place powdered sugar and powdered milk in a large mixing bowl.
Add a pinch of salt, Crisco shortening and water.
Mix with beaters until smooth.
Ice cookies and sprinkle with cinnamon as soon as you ice them. Otherwise the icing will dry and the cinnamon will not adhere.
Pack away for a rainy day!
Take to any holiday party and you’ll find Iced Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies gone in no time.
Try a bite!
You can’t beat chocolate, pumpkin and icing. Oh my!
A little sprinkle of cinnamon brings all the flavors together.
Here’s the recipe.
