Happy second day of fall friends! I’m that girl who becomes giddy when the first pumpkin spice products hit the aisles come the beginning of September. I go overboard with the pumpkin candles, soap, treats, body wash, hand sanitizer and more. I love it. I look forward to it. It’s my FAVORITE time of the year.
Something else that comes along with the pumpkin spice products is the baking in my house. I love it. This past weekend, AG asked to make cookies. That is one thing I’ll NEVER say no to, so I decided to celebrate fall starting with pumpkin cookies.
Over the years, I’ve made tons of pumpkin cookies. Lots of different varieties from adding in toffee, nuts, white chocolate and just some spices. On this particular day, I was craving the combination of pumpkin and chocolate, so that is what we ran with.
I have to say that these are the BEST pumpkin cookies I’ve ever made. Many times with the pumpkin cookies, they’re a tad soft from the pumpkin. But not with this recipe. Not at all. They have a slight crisp to the outside and the chewy chocolate pumpkin goodness inside.
I took a container of them to work and they were completely gone by the end of the day. My two year old even absolutely loved them. To the point of where we had to hide the container so he wouldn’t cry for them. If you’re looking for a delicious cookie recipe to kick off the start of fall, this is definitely it!
