Guess Who’s Back & With a Seasonal Recipe

¡Hola Amigos!

I’ve been out for 2 weeks!!! But I’m finally feeling much better.  Every time I thought of blogging last week, I thought of the Eminem Song above.  I know a little scandalous but to be fair I could only remember the intro part.

So it’s Thanksgiving week!!! I get to see my family tomorrow!!! I’m very excited and because I can’t think of anything other than Thanksgiving I’ve been cooking and baking up a storm even before they get here.  It’s something about this holiday that forces you to cook and eat.  In light of this wave of zombie eating and cooking I’m sharing a recipe today.

 Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

So here’s the sitch: I’m a terrible baker.  I can cook fine because I’m not afraid to add a little of this and a little of that.  Baking is very different because things must be measured and added in a scientific way and I’m NOT a science-y person.  However, yesterday I decided to go out on a limb and tried concocting something.

I had about a half cup of leftover pumpkin puree from a previous recipe that needed to be used.  I picked up a packet of Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix on the way home.  The mix calls for 1 stick of butter and 1 egg.  I modified the recipe by adding half a stick of butter, one egg and the half cup of pumpkin puree.  It looked a little runny so I added a tablespoon of brown sugar and added tiny amounts of all purpose flour until it was the consistency of a cookie.  This packet made 2 dozen large round cookies.  As you can tell by my directions, it’s almost impossible not to give into habbit – I still did the little bit of this / that thing.

The cookies were marvelous!!! I want to add pumpkin puree to everything!  It made the cookies so fluffy light and moist.  Usually cookies get a little dry and flat after being out of the oven for a while but I ate one this evening and it’s still as perfect as before.  Definitely my new favorite recipe!!!  Simple and tasty.

I’ll be back tomorrow with more Thanksgiving love!!!
