Did I have you at pumpkin or chocolate? Honestly, chocolate makes almost everything taste good, but it make any bad day better. I definitely had a case of the Mondays yesterday, shhh don’t tell my boss. So naturally what would any pregnant woman do? Duh, bake cookies!
Side note: if it was a workout night I would have workout and then baked cookies! Lucky me tomorrow is a double day so I’m not worried about any amount of calories from said cookie. Winning!
Ok, so more about the cookies. I wish I had an old family recipe to share, but alas I don’t. Instead I called up my friend Pinterest via the internet and asked her for the best pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe. Oh boy, she had a few cookie recipes to share.These are definitely on deck — Brown Butter Nutella-Stuffed Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies and Melt-in-your-mouth pumpkin cookies!
Since I didn’t feel like going to the store I had to work with ingredients on hand, but trust me these classic pumpkin chocolate chips cookies were perfect! The best part — I was able to use my new freestanding slide-in oven range!! Worked like a dream.
