This recipe combines pumpkin with s’mores chips. The pumpkin offers a cozy autumn flavor, while the s’mores chips add a delightful sweetness. It’s an ideal snack for chilly fall afternoons.
Hey there, fabulous Cousins! Let me tell y’all something: Autumn has strutted in, honey! And when the leaves are working that golden runway, there’s only one way I know how to join the party – with a cookie that screams autumn.
Y’all, these aren’t your average cookies. This is where pumpkin, that diva of the vegetable world, meets the sultry sweetness of s’mores chips. It’s like if glamour and comfort had a delicious baby!
When I first bit into this cookie, I had a moment. A moment of “Honey, why didn’t I meet you sooner?” It’s the kind of cookie that makes you want to put on your best robe, light up a fireplace (even if it’s just on your TV), and pretend you’re in a luxury cabin somewhere.
Here’s the magic spell to bring these chewy delights to life:
- Unsalted Sweet Cream Butter (1 cup): A base fat that gives the cookies their rich texture and taste. Ensure it’s at room temperature.
- Light Brown Sugar (1 cup): Adds sweetness and a slight molasses flavor. Packed light brown sugar ensures a moist cookie.
- Granulated Sugar (1 cup): A sweetening agent that contributes to the cookie’s structure.
- Pure Pumpkin Puree (1 cup): Provides a natural pumpkin flavor and moisture. Avoid pumpkin pie filling; we want the pure stuff.
- Pure Vanilla Extract (2 tsp): Enhances the cookie’s flavor profile.
- All-Purpose Flour (5 cups): The primary dry ingredient, gives the cookies their structure.
- Baking Soda (2 tsp) & Baking Powder (2 tsp): Leavening agents that help the cookies rise and become fluffy.
- Ground Cinnamon (2 tsp): Adds a warming spiced flavor, perfect for autumn.
- Ground Cloves (¼ tsp): A potent spice that gives a deep, aromatic taste.
- Ground Nutmeg (½ tsp): Another warm spice that complements the pumpkin.
- Allspice (½ tsp): A combination of various spices, enhancing the cookie’s flavor profile.
- Fine Kosher Salt (⅛ tsp): Balances out the sweetness and enhances overall flavor.
- Premium S’mores Baking Chips (2 ½ cups): The star of the show! Adds texture and a sweet twist to the cookies.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and elegantly line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a grand mixing bowl, combine the butter, light brown sugar, and granulated sugar until achieving a creamy and smooth consistency.
- Blend in the pumpkin puree and vanilla extract with the creamy mixture.
- In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, and salt.
- Slowly incorporate the sifted dry mixture into the wet mixture, stirring continuously for a unified blend.
- Delicately fold in 2 cups of the S’mores baking chips, saving the rest for later.
- Using an ice cream scoop or spoon, deposit portions of the dough onto your prepared baking sheet, ensuring proper spacing for each cookie to spread.
Now, let’s keep it real. Quality is key. Go all out for that pure pumpkin puree and the most divine s’mores chips you can find. Because, darling, you are worth every exquisite bite!
