Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies and a KitchenAid®  Stand Mixer giveaway! Let’s kick this Monday off with a bang!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

I’m home!! Chile was absolutely ah-mazing – literally, it was phenomenal. I had the best time and I’ll be sharing my entire adventure here over the next few weeks. But today I thought we should celebrate being home with cookies. Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies!

I’ve totally fallen off the Halloween prep bandwagon. I haven’t bought any pumpkins – YET! But I plan on doing that this week and then I’m going to spray paint it gold, with sparkles, like my party nail! Between my gold pumpkins and these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies, I’d say I’m just about ready for Halloween! I’ve got to hold off on any halloween candy buying until right before the big day, otherwise it’s bound to disappear.

I want ya’ll to be prepared for halloween and all the upcoming baking that we’ll be doing for the holidays! So to get you ready – I’m giving away my all time favorite kitchen appliance – a KitchenAid®  Stand Mixer! You pick the color! I’m partial to the bright colors – but there are just so many options!

  30. I subscribed at YouTube. Cookies! Lots and lots of cookies. And so much else. I make a lot of baked goods and have wanted one of these all my life (and I’m 70!). It would make “grandma-ing” so much easier and help me keep the cookie jar always full (including homemade cookies for my service dog).

      yay! Thanks

  37. This is such a great giveaway!
    I’ve been subscribed to your YouTube channel for a while now and I absolutely love your recipes! :)

    Other than these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies, I’m just excited about baking all pumpkin related goodies for my family. They LOVE it when I bring over pumpkin bread, cinnamon pumpkin rolls, and of course pumpkin pie.

    I can’t wait to make these cookies and bring it over to them!

  38. I have subscribed. I can’t wait to bake these cookies. They look absolutely delicious! I have recently taken up healthy cooking and baking and these are perfect for my fall pumpking baking craze. Thank you for the great offer!

  39. Subscribed! I’ve already gotten into the holiday baking and have been baking all things pumpkin the past few weeks – pumpkin cranberry scones, apple pumpkin muffins, pumpkin blondies, mini ginger muffins. I’m especially looking forward to Christmas time when we bake cut out butter cookies and all sorts of other great treats. So much fun trying out new recipes but I also love the classics!

  40. I subscribed to your YouTube page– after watching some great videos. I am not excited about making Christmas cookies this year.

  41. Welcome home, Gaby!! Can’t wait to hear all about South America, what a trip! These cookies look phenomenal… definitely the thing I’m most excited about baking this season (along with pumpkin cinnamon rolls, hehe). Subscribed to your YouTube channel!

  42. I just subscribed, and I can’t pick just one thing I’m excited for! I love baking, holiday or not. During the holidays I will usually make a minimum of 20 different baked goods and divide them between us, family, and neighbors (my out of state aging future father in law and disabled niece usually receive the most ;-) but last year I was 2 months pregnant and having health issues during the whole pregnancy I didn’t get much of anything done for last years holidays or any time this year so far. Now that baby is here and I am getting back into the swing of things I can’t wait to make a ton of stuff this year to make up for the lack of last year!

  43. Gaby, just subscribed to your YouTube Channel. My wife and I are hoping to dive into macaroon making, probably a pumpkin spice with hazelnut icing for fall. That mixer sure would make things easier for her… I mean us… My arm already feels better not having to hold that sad, old handheld mixer. It even gives off that slight electrical fire smell when you use it too long. But I’m rambling, and hoping for a macaroon filled fall made with the ease of an awesome mixer.

  44. I subscribed! I would love to win and make my grandma’s chocolate cake and mandel bread recipes!!

  45. I will be baking a pumpkin cheesecake in the next few weeks. Then, pumpkin and pecan pies for Thanksgiving, and a Buche de Noel for Christmas. A few other items will be prepared also, probably some apple pies.

  46. I just subscribed to your channel :)

    And I’m most excited to bake these cookies that I think are called “kiffles” or something similar. All I know is my grandmother makes them and they’re awesome!

  47. I’ve subscribed to your YouTube channel! This holiday season, I cannot wait to make pumpkin chocolate chip bread! I love pumpkin season!

  48. I subscribed!! Such a tough call but probably my great grandma’s chocolate chip mandel bread and/or my mom’s Bits of Brickle (Health and chocolate chips) bundt cake!
