At the end of October, a friend of our family got married. The plan was for all of the bridesmaids to get ready at the mother of the bride’s house. Well, my friend is the mother of the bride, and I wanted to do something helpful. So I offered to make cookies for her to have there.
I have a standard cookbook that I always use when making cookies but I looked high and low for it and couldn’t find it. I didn’t want all of the cookies to be the same kind so I made several different recipes and even tried something new. I love trying new recipes so it was fun.
One new recipe was this Pumpkin Chip Cookie recipe. This recipe came from a cookbook that a blog reader sent. You can find the book HERE on Amazon. I’ve tried several recipes in it and have loved them all.
Here is the recipe…
I used butter for the shortening. I’m a butter girl all the way!
The dough is really creamy and the cookies are a little cake-like. The recipe uses a lot of baking powder and soda so the cookies are extra high.
These would be so good with a glass of milk.
It made a big batch which at my house is perfect. Not only did I send some to my friend, but I sent some with another childcare family, the childcare kids had some and then there were a couple left here to tempt me.
I’ve learned that any recipe that calls for 4 cups of flour is going to make a pretty big batch of cookies.
These are a keeper and I’d definitely make them again.
