Wow. What a week! I think I've had about 10 of those moments when your head starts to spin and you wonder… what day is it? where is the time going? is it the weekend yet?
And what about the fact that we are two weeks away from Thanksgiving. How did that happen?? That means I have to start planning for Christmas soon!!
We all have these moments in our life, when we just can’t seem to grasp hold of our days. And if today is one of those days for you, I leave you with these… white chocolate pumpkin cookies.
Smile. :) Your day just got better!
These cookies are soft and fluffy in texture. The delicate spice will unfold in your mouth, sweetened beautifully by white chocolate. These cookies are irresistible!
Pumpkin recipes have been popping up all over the food blog network (I’ve partook in a few of my own). But these cookies fulfilled my pumpkin cravings this year - absolutely phenomenal!
Yields about 30 cookies
1 cup Libby's canned pumpkin
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
In a large bowl, using and electric mixer, beat pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla and egg. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Gradually add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheet, smooth out to obtain desired shape. Bake about 10 minutes or until lightly browned, cookie should spring back when softly touched. Let cool on pan for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.
