Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices in a large bowl. Meanwhile, in the bowl of your stand mixer, mix together butter and granulated sugar until well combined. Add in brown sugar and mix. Next add in eggs and vanilla while mixing. Lastly, mix in the pumpkin. Now add your dry ingredients into your stand mixer in 4 parts, mixing just enough to combine. Toss in the chocolate chips and mix until evenly distributed. Place your cookie dough in the fridge for 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 375F. Remove dough from refrigerator and place onto parchment paper lined baking sheets using tablespoons. Flatten a bit. Make sure to leave enough space for the cookies to spread. Bake for 15-17 minutes total. I baked at 375F for the first half of the time, then finished baking at 350F. Cookies are done when edges are golden brown.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

“Cookies are made of butter and love”

Is there any dessert more classic and cozy than a chocolate chip cookie? The scent of these baking in my oven just makes me want to throw on some pj’s, pour a glass of milk, and cozy up on the couch. It’s not easy to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe – mostly because everyone’s ideal cookie is a little different. I prefer a cookie that is slightly crunchy along the edges and soft with ooey-gooey chocolate chips in the middle. If that’s your style – then this is the cookie for you!

Preheat oven to 375F. Remove dough from refrigerator and place onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. I used large spoonfuls. Make sure to leave enough space for the cookies to spread. Bake for 10-15 minutes. I baked at 375F for the first half of the time, then finished baking at 350F. Cookies are done when edges are golden brown. Let cool, and enjoy!
