Chewy Pumpkin-Choc Chip-Raisin-Roasted Pecan Cookies

November 13, 2012

Sound like too many flavors? I agree. It does. But these turned out GREAT! Chewy and creamy with textures and flavors busting out all over and grabbing you in your gobbler-gullet! And just in time for a Thanksgiving twist on a tested, tried and true favorite: the simple cookie. Bake a batch and squirrel ’em away (in the freezer) till Turkey Thanksgiving Day!

Chewy Pumpkin – Chocolate Chip – Raisin – Roasted Pecan Cookies

1 stick melted butter
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 1/4 cups mixture of dark choc chips, raisins, roasted pecans

Mix wet ingredients. Add dry. Refrigerate for 30 min’s. Drop onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for about 10 min’s, depending on size of cookies. Don’t let them get too “done-looking,” or they won’t be chewy. YUM!

Enjoy them for Thanksgiving or whenever the weather says, “Pumpkin Time!”
