Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts

Where did we leave off with Pumpkin Palooza 2014? Oh yea, these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts are a very nice treat! The pumpkin and spices are subtle but you'll know they're there. Ma stopped by for coffee and we both really liked them, just how good they are kinda sneaks up on you... Dapper Jack was here for coffee too, he's always ready to lend a hand-at least when there are cookies involved:@)
 The cookies do have that puffy, cake type consistency like so many pumpkin recipes.
These really are a great grown-up treat folks, perfect with coffee or tea.
The recipe is easily cut in half.
Dapper Jack is a Fitz and Floyd plate from HomeGoods many years ago.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts-from King Arthur Flour
2 1/4 C A/P flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 C butter, softened
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
15oz can pumpkin
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
grated zest of one orange, optional-I didn't use this
2 C chocolate chips
1 C chopped walnuts
  1. Mix first six ingredients together.
  2. In separate bowl add butter, brown sugar and sugar mix until well blended and smooth.
  3. Add pumpkin, eggs, vanilla and orange zest to butter mixture and mix until blended. 
  4. Slowly add flour mixture to the wet mixture until blended. Stir in chips and nuts.
  5. Drop tablespoons of batter onto cookie sheets and bake at 375 for approx 18 minutes or until the edges have lightly browned.
  6. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
  7. There is an optional glaze you can find on their site.
Enjoy a cookie and have a happy day:@)

  11. Other than a pumpkin brioche a few years ago and the standard pumpkin pies I have not branched out when it comes to baking with pumpkin. These do sound wonderful with the chocolate chips and walnuts!

  13. These sound wonderful! I would probably skip the walnuts so I don't feel obligated to eat the whole batch myself!
