White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Pumpkin Spice Cookies studded with White Chocolate Chips! I mean really, what gets better than that? Now that fall is officially here, it’s all about the baking. And baking with pumpkin and white chocolate is pretty much a dream come true. These cookies are just waiting for you to make them! They are chewy and moist and kind of remind me of pumpkin bread but in cookie form. Needless to say that these were gobbled up shortly after coming out of the oven… and I’ve already been requested to make more!

Okay, here’s how to do it…


First we are going to mix all of our dry ingredients together. We’ll start with the flour.


Next add the baking powder and baking soda.


Followed by the cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice!

Throw in a little bit of salt. (Adding a touch of salt to cookies is pretty much like taking them to a whole new level!)


Take a fork and mix together all the dry ingredients and then go ahead and set it aside.


In a mixer, cream together the butter and the sugars for a few minutes.


Go ahead and add in the pumpkin.


Followed by the egg…


And then add some vanilla. You can use vanilla extract or the seeds from a vanilla bean. I happened to be our of vanilla extract (gasp – I know – such a tragedy!) so I just subbed in some vanilla beans and went on my merry way…


Turn the mixer on slowly and let the ingredients come together.


Add the dry ingredients in batches, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as you go…


Until your cookie dough looks beautiful, just like this…


Toss in the white chocolate chips and fold them into the batter…


Now’s the perfect time to lick the extra dough off the beater.


Place the cookie dough into the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes. (I let it hang out in there for about an hour or two) This is just going to let the cookie dough flavors melt together and it makes scooping the dough onto your baking sheet a bit easier!


Once the dough is chilled, using a cookie scoop and place 12 small balls of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet and pop them in the oven for about 13 minutes. Repeat this until you’ve used up all the cookie dough!


And then it’s time to eat about 39 of these White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies because they are awesome!
