So yummy! I got this recipe from allrecipes.com I messed with it of course, and it turned out pretty well. Here's my version of pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies.
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 (15 ounce) can LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
*1 12 ounce package ( or 2 packages see note below) NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels *
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
recipe yields 36 cookies
Note about chocolate chips. The original recipe called for 2 bags of chocolate chips. I made it that way a few times and it was just so chocolatey that it overwhelmed the pumpkin flavor. So I halved it and my family likes it much better. If you really love a lot of chocolate try it with two bags. Let me know which way you like it best!
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
COMBINE flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in pumpkin, eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets.
BAKE for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. (18 minutes is perfect in my oven) Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely. Drizzle or spread with Vanilla Glaze.
