When I made these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, I had an open can of pumpkin puree leftover from a previous pumpkin recipe I had made. I decided to put the extra puree to good use and added it to these cookies. Best.Decision.Ever!
I was incredibly pleased with how these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies turned out. They were so soft and puffy, and had more of a cake-like consistency than do regular cookies. It was kind of like eating a small pillow of cookie-cake. Eek, so good! Um, so good, I ate two before dinner. And one for breakfast the next morning. So much for losing those extra five pounds before Christmas. I’m doomed, ya’ll.
Can you believe these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies were even softer on day two? Yay for pumpkin puree!
