Substitutions Tips

You don’t use or have some of these ingredients on hand then try these…Swap margarine for butter. No real vanilla, use imitation vanilla instead or try using almond extract. Milk chocolate or white chocolate chip would be just as good as semi-sweet chips. Leave out the oatmeal and add 1/2 cup more of flour.

If you don’t have all of the spices listed in the recipe card and have pumpkin pie spice then use that. No need to buy all those spices when you have pumpkin pie spice on hand. Lastly, DO NOT USE CANNED PUMPKIN PIE FILLING…your cookies will come out mushy.

HOW DO YOU MAKE PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

These cookies are so simple to make! No mixer reguired!

COOK’S TIPS

Don’t over mix the dough. Whisking the dry ingredients together before you add the wet ingredients really cuts down the need to use an electric mixer.

Lay the pumpkin puree on a paper towel for the extra moisture to be absorbed.

After cookies are completely cooled, store them in an air tight container or heavy zip lock bag.

Enjoy!!!
