Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Cookies
“Classic chocolate chip cookies get a fall update by mixing in pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice. Not only are these pumpkin cookies even more flavorful than regular chocolate chip cookies, they're also oh-so-soft and cakelike. Use chocolate chunks for big gooey bites of chocolate or opt for mini chocolate chips to ensure a bit of chocolate in each bite.”
⅔ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
⅔ cup all-purpose flour
1½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
¾ cup canned unseasoned pumpkin puree
3 tablespoons melted butter
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
⅔ cup chocolate chunks or mini chocolate chips
1Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
2Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Whisk brown sugar, eggs, pumpkin puree, butter, oil and vanilla in a medium bowl. Stir the wet ingredients and chocolate chunks (or chips) into the dry ingredients until well combined.
3Drop the batter by the level tablespoonful onto a prepared baking sheet, spacing the cookies about 1½ inches apart. Bake until firm to the touch and lightly golden on top, 10 to 13 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
To make ahead: Store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days.
