Hey everyone, it’s Rebecca from Living Better Together again and I’m so excited to be back here with Aniko sharing a delicious fall recipe with all of you! These cookies in particular are a fun twist on the well loved Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, they’re the reverse! Chocolate Pumpkin Chip Pudding Cookies!
When I noticed the Pumpkin Spice Chips for the first time at Target, I knew there was all kinds of awesome things I could make with them! Pudding cookies are one of my absolute favorite things to bake and they’re my husband’s favorite to eat! I had a few vacation days to burn from my day job a couple of weeks ago and decided to dive into my fall baking with these puppies. I also had a dentist appointment and thought to myself, “Would it be frowned upon to take cookies to the ladies at the dentist office”? Seeings as I was greeted with a huge hug and tons of thanks yous, I think I made the right choice!
These cookies are quite different in flavor. With pumpkin pie spice mixed into the dough itself, the chocolate has a smooth tone of spice that’s even more heightened with the pumpkin spice chips. They’re soft and chewy and downright perfect when paired with a glass of cold milk!
