I adore all-things pumpkin. My kids love it too, which is why we frequently make these cookies. They are very easy to make with children, and everyone gobbles them up. They even make great snacks for lunch boxes—and if you double the recipe you can pop a batch in the freezer for later. These easy pumpkin white chocolate chip cookies are bound to become an instant family favourite!
- unsalted butter: 1 cup, room temperature
- granulated sugar: ½ cup
- packed light brown sugar: ½ cup
- pumpkin pureé: about 2 cups
- eggs: 2 large, room temperature
- pure vanilla extract: 1 teaspoon
- unbleached all-purpose flour: 2¼ cups
- baking powder: 1 teaspoon
- bicarbonate of soda: ½ teaspoon
- kosher salt: 1 teaspoon
- pumpkin pie spice: 1 teaspoon
- white chocolate chips: 1 250 gm bag
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line two baking sheets with baking paper and set aside.
Step 2: In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, add the butter, sugars and pumpkin. Beat until completely smooth and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until smooth.
Step 3: In a large bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, bicarb of soda, salt and spices. Turn the mixer on low and beat the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until smooth. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the chocolate chips.
Step 4: Dollop the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet by the tablespoonful and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until set in the middle and golden around the edges. Remove to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store in a sealed container when not enjoying!
