Pumpkin Harvest Cookies

Pumpkin Harvest Cookies

These pumpkin harvest cookies are cake-like in texture. They are pillowy soft and very moist! This recipe is also very customizable. You can substitute chopped walnuts and craisins or other favorite nuts such as pecans.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1.5 cups butter
  • 2 cups firm packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, combine flour, oats, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In another large bowl, cream softened butter with a mixer. Add brown and white sugars gradually until the butter mixture is fluffy. Then, add egg and vanilla and blend until mixed.
  4. With the mixer still running, alternate adding scoops of pumpkin and dry ingredients. Mix well until incorporated, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally.
  5. Use a spatula/large spoon to stir in the chocolate chips, coconut, and raisins.
  6. On a nonstick baking sheet, deposit rounded tablespoon sized drops of batter evenly on the tray (I use a 2 tsp scooper tool to easily scoop the cookies).
  7. Bake cookies for 12-15 minutes, until fully cooked/set, with a small amount of browning around the bottom edges. Remove from the tray and allow to cool on a wire baking rack. Enjoy!
