Whenever I hear the words “pumpkin” and “white chocolate”in the same sentence I instantly crave Pumpkin White Chocolate Drop Cookies!
Anytime I’m in the mood to bake I grab my handy-dandy Empire Red KitchenAid mixer that my loving husband surprised me with for Christmas one year. My husband really knocked it out of the park!! Let me tell ya, this mixer is one of the BEST gifts I have ever received. I just love it and use it several times a week to make all kinds of yummy dishes. You’ll probably see random pictures of it throughout our many blog post.
Okay, onward ho!
This recipe for Pumpkin White Chocolate Cookies begins by mixing butter and sugar together until it’s light and fluffy (as seen in the picture above).
Next, it’s time to add pumpkin and eggs and as a result, the batter turns a pretty orange color.
After adding all of the remaining ingredients use a 4 cm cookie dough scoop or a teaspoon to drop the batter onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Either the scoop or a teaspoon will work fine, however, using a cookie dough scoop will provide cookies both uniform in size and shape.
Bake the cookies in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for approximately 16 minutes.
While the Pumpkin White Chocolate Cookies are still warm, add cream cheese frosting combined with brown sugar to the top of each cookie. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or a combination of cinnamon and sugar. Either way, they are delicious!
Because the cookies are small (each cookie is about two bites), one recipe makes approximately 6 dozen cookies. Therefore, simply divide the recipe in half if you do not want that many cookies. Another idea is to freeze part of the cookies and simply thaw and serve them whenever you need a dessert.
These golden little gems are perfect for small hands, and that’s especially relevant for small children. Maybe it’s because little people are attracted to small, bite-size treats.
TIP: My favorite gluten free baking powder is a brand called HAIN Featherweight baking powder. It’s sodium-free, gluten-free and works great in any baked goods.
While any Cookie Monster would love to keep these cookies all for themselves, I am pretty confident they would probably share. So grab your friends and enjoy some yummy Pumpkin White Chocolate Drop Cookies!
