I know I haven’t been very active with my “In the Kitchen” series due to schoolwork and interviews, but I finally got a chance to catch up with Gloria tonight and what better way than a little baking session! We decided to go seasonal – pumpkin chocolate chip cookies from scratch.
Don’t let the list of ingredients discourage you! There may be a lot of little things, but all are multi-purpose and good to have stocked in your kitchen. Plus, they’re simple to gather, straightforward to process, and of course fun when you get to do it with a friend =)
The result is a perfect balance of pumpkin and chocolate with a hint of cinnamon. The inherent texture to the pumpkins prevented our cookies from being too dense and chewy. In fact, they came out really fluffy with almost cake-like consistency. The pumpkin also added a tint of autumn orange between the gooey chocolate chunks. So perfect for the fall! Give it a try! It’s really unlike any other cookies I’ve pulled out of my oven.
