Pumpkin Chocolate Chip (or Raisins) Cookies

Ok so I made these cookies back in October. I would have lied, but I think the Jack-o-Lantern mug gives it away haha

I remember growing up, the grocery store would have pumpkin raisin cookies with orange icing. These were my favorite, even more than chocolate chip cookies. They were always expensive, so when they were on reduced-sale for being a few days old, my dad would buy a couple dozen. They’ve stopped going on sale, so we stopped buying them. I tried making a similar recipe a few years ago, but it wasn’t as good. This year, I was browsing Tastespotting and I found a marvelous cookie picture from Dishing Up Delights. The ones I had growing up were Pumpkin Raisin Cookies, but I decided to use this recipe as a base and make one half chocolate chip, the other half raisin.

Left – chocolate chip. Right – raisin

I skipped the orange icing because one – they didn’t need them and two – cut out extra calories and sugar. Every little bit counts, no? Also, don’t forget the baking soda mixture! Normally, you would mix the baking soda in with the dry ingredients. However, it says to dissolve it in milk and set aside. I was halfway scooping the dough onto the cookie sheets when I saw the milk on the counter. Oops! I hurried up and stirred it in. Did it make a difference? No clue.

  1. These must be amazing if they can beat CCCs! I would be so nervous about overmixing if I forgot to add the milk with the cookies halfway into scooping.. I glad it worked out for you! I forget to add vanilla all the time and occasionally salt b/c everything is usually scattered and unorganized when I bake. The worst was probably when I forgot to add sugar to my muffins.. those were super gross.

  2. I love these too!! They are soooo good!

  3. They look great and thank you for pointing out my typo. I fixed it :)

  4. They look moist and soft, yum. I have a cup of pumpkin leftover just sitting in my fridge…very tempting!

  6. Yeah if these beat your beloved CCC, then I guess they are really something special :) Even though it's a countdown to T-giving, pumpkin desserts are still ruling the universe.

  7. I hate when I turn around and find an ingredient that was suppose be used. Your not alone in that one my friend! These look great! Have a great weekend. It's almost time for the change! ;)
