It is pumpkin season and these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect Fall treat.
Pumpkin + Chocolate = Must Make
I am all about pumpkin anytime but when you throw chocolate to the mix… well I am ALL IN. I love pumpkin pie spice (especially this Trader Joe’s version) and chocolate together. I first fell in love with spiced chocolate when I made these Mexican Spiced Brownies several years back.
I love how the spices really mesh with the bitterness of the chocolate and enhance each other. I know that sounds very foodie but try it… you will see what I am talking about.
Extra Chocolate… Please
Can there ever be too much chocolate? My answer is always no… so for some extra yummy I added chocolate chunks into the dough and then on top before they were baked a few extra after they were baked.
I always like adding a few pieces when I take cookies out of the oven to make them look pretty, but for these I just wanted more chocolate.
I used semi-sweet chocolate chunks but you can use whatever variety you have … dark chocolate would be delicious.
Yes, that is extra sugar…
Pumpkin cookies typically are more cakey and they don’t get as crispy on the edges as a more traditional chocolate chip cookie so to add a little extra crunch I rolled the dough in sugar before baking. I used a combo of course sugar and regular granulated sugar for some extra texture.
I love the little extra bit if sweetness you get but also it is pretty too. There will be little bits of sugar crunch here and there making each bite something special. You don’t have to roll them sugar… but I mean why not? It is Fall after all.
Time to get your pumpkin on!
