Super moist pumpkin cookies filled with white chocolate chips and covered in pumpkin spice-sugar crystal goodness: these cookies are the perfect cookies to satisfy your pumpkin sweet tooth!
Okay, so I took a break from the pumpkin treats last week, but now I’m back because let’s face it- there are only a few more days left of socially acceptable pumpkin obsession! If you like pumpkin and you like white chocolate, you’ll love these cookies. I hope they’ll make an appearance at your Thanksgiving table or maybe on your Tuesday night table just because…
Without further delay- here’s the recipe!
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup sugar (this will be used in both the dough and to roll cookies in)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 6 tablespoons pumpkin puree
- 1 and a 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (will also be used both in dough and to roll cookies)
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Combine softened butter with brown sugar and 1/2 cup of sugar. Mix until well combined.
Add in vanilla and pumpkin puree and mix well.
Gradually add in flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and one teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. Scrape sides of bowl to ensure well combined.
By hand, stir in the white chocolate chips.
Refrigerate dough for at least one hour, up to 4 days, in airtight container.
When ready to bake, pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice in a bowl.
Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop cookie dough and form into rounded ball.
Roll ball in sugar-pumpkin pie spice mix.
Place on baking sheet and repeat for all of the dough.
Once placed on baking sheet, slightly flatten the balls of dough pushing down with your palm.
Place in oven and bake for 7-9 minutes. The cookies will be soft, so allow them to cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before moving them.
The recipe makes about two dozen cookies- feel free to share or not 🙂
