White Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

I go for my 31 week checkup this afternoon. So far I’ve been going monthly but after today I’ll have biweekly appointments. I don’t mind these checkups, I find them reassuring, plus I like to see how much weight I’ve gained. Haha I don’t know why. To try and keep myself on track maybe?

White Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

Today however, I’m scared…I feel as though I’ve doubled in size since my last appointment and if you look at all the sweets I’ve been posting lately you’ll see I’ve been eating a lot of not-so-good-for-non-weight-gain food. (And those don’t even show the candy I snack on or the Oreos and peanut butter or the pint(s) of Ben & Jerry’s…yahh). Let’s just skip over the weight check today shall we?

White Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

Speaking of delicious sweets, if you haven’t had white chocolate pumpkin cookies yet this year then you’re missing out and MUST make THESE today. Not even kidding. They are the most delicious pumpkin cookies I have had. I made these last weekend for the football game, and they were gone in a flash!

They’re not very cakey like a lot of pumpkin cookies, they have incredible flavor, the pumpkin shines without being overpowering, and the richness in the white chocolate is the perfect complement to the light cookie.

White Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin, partly dried**
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Lay a couple paper towels in a strainer and dump in your pumpkin. (The paper towels will start to soak up some of the moisture from the pumpkin. As they become thoroughly soaked, switch them out for dry paper towels. The more moisture you can remove from the pumpkin the better. The moisture is part of what makes pumpkin cookies “cakey”, so to get that chewy, soft cookie texture, try to remove some of the moisture.)
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Set Aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars.
  5. Add the pumpkin, egg, and vanilla. Mix to combine.
  6. Gradually add in the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
  7. Stir in the white chocolate chips.
  8. Spoon drops of dough onto the cookie sheets and bake 8-10 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
