I know I said I don’t like pumpkin and really I don’t love it, but these cookies looked really good and I just wanted to try them. They are really good! I made them again today and feel like I really mastered them this time.
Definitely cake-like as the recipe indicates, and they are addicting.
3/4 cups canola oil
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups sugar
1 can of pumpkin (about a cup and a half)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon*
1 1/2 tsp nutmeg*
(*alternatively you could use 1T pumpkin pie spice)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
as many chocolate chips as you need, spiritually. (I use 1.5cups)
Mix wet and dry ingredients until smooth, then drop by the spoonful onto your cookie sheet using a scoop or large spoon – we like them on the small side best. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes, or until the middle of the cookie feels firm to the touch.
