Lets first start by saying that these cookies are MASSIVE. There is nothing worse (in my opinion) than a recipe that promises a dozen cookies and leaves you with 12 quarter size bites. Well none of that here, we like our cookies big 😉 These beauties are fat and fluffy, with the most amazing (non-cakey) texture. Rich pumpkin and dark chocolate in are in every bite and the decadent taste of creme cheese icing puts these cookies over the top. These are a must for your next holiday gathering.
I experimented with many types of flour, eggs vs. egg whites, butter vs oil etc for this recipe. My number one goal was to create a pumpkin cookie that was nice and thick (no thin wafers) with a chewy texture. A lot of the pumpkin cookie recipes you find out there taste like dry cake (especially the healthier ones) or, they are too crunchy. In my opinion, this is the perfect pumpkin cookie. There is nothing quite like them out there. Enjoy and be sure to tell me how you like them!
