Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Savour the flavours of 
Autumn with these 
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

A soft cookie enhanced
with Chocolate and Orange flavour.

Recipe yields 3 doz. cookies.

2cups flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt

2 large eggs at
 room temperature

1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract, or
(orange extract, if you have it.)
1/2 to 1 cup chocolate chips.
(nuts can also be substituted 
for the chocolate chips.)
1 cup pumpkin puree

I used canned puree for this recipe.


Preheat oven to 325 deg.F.

In a large bowl,
 whisk together the flour, 
baking powder, baking soda,
 cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

In a bowl with any electric mixer,
beat the eggs and sugar until 
light and smooth, about 2 minutes. 
Add in the oil, vanilla 
(or orange extract)and
 the pumpkin puree.

Add the flour mixture and beat
 just until they are mixed together.
Fold in the chocolate chips.

Using a small scoop or tablespoon,
place small mounds of batter onto 
the prepared baking sheets,
spacing about 2 inches apart.

Bake about 13-15 minutes or until 
a toothpick inserted in the centre of
 the cookie comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and
transfer to a wire rack to cool 
completely before frosting.

For the Frosting/Glaze
In a small bowl,
 mix 2 cups of powdered/
icing sugar,

(I sift the icing sugar to 
eliminate lumps)

2 tablespoons water
2 tbsp of orange extract. 
(If it is too thin, add more
icing sugar, too thick, 
add more water)

Spread glaze on tops of cookies,
sprinkle with candies to decorate.

Happy Autumn!
