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.
They look so good – but can you go wrong with chocolate chips and nuts! You are a sweetheart to help your friend in this way.
Major plus recipe. I’m copying it and saving it as Thanksgiving and Christmas are peeping over the horizon.
What a small world. I read your blog every day. You are such an inspiration. You are in Iowa baking cookies from a cookbook that has recipes from Dayton Pa. I live about 10 miles from Dayton. Funny how everyone’s lives can be intertwined. I wish you the best with your upcoming treatments. My husband also had thyroid cancer about 20 years ago and so far so good. Praying that God will take special good care of you and your family through the next few months.
Those are some good looking cookies and pumpkin is perfect with fall. Thanks for sharing
Nice! Thanks for sharing…they look delish…something new to try!
Love and prayers
Perfect timing, Jo! I just made Great Pumpkin Dessert this week, but bought the large can of pumpkin. That means that I have just enough to give (a half order of) this recipe a try!
Very good. I got 76 very healthy cookies. Taking to cards tonight.
