Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4c. all purpose flour
  • 1tsp. baking soda
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 2tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4tsp. allspice
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1c. cream cheese
  • 1 1/4c. brown sugar
  • 3/4c. granulated sugar
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium size bowl sift the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices.
  3. Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, add the butter, cream cheese, and both sugars. Beat on medium high until fluffy. Add the pumpkin puree and vanilla and continue to mix.
  4. Reduce the speed to low and add the dry ingredients. Mix until the flour is incorporated. Remove the bowl from the mixer and add the chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.
  5. Scoop the dough onto the baking sheet with either a spoon or 1 ounce cookie scoop about an inch apart.
  6. Bake cookies until they’re slightly cracked on the surface and golden. Rotate the baking sheet half way if necessary. 12-15 minutes. Remove cookies and place them on a cooling rack. Enjoy with ice cream or milk!pumpkinchocolatechip
