Pumpkin Spice Cookies studded with White Chocolate Chips! I mean really, what gets better than that? Now that fall is officially here, it’s all about the baking. And baking with pumpkin and white chocolate is pretty much a dream come true. These cookies are just waiting for you to make them! They are chewy and moist and kind of remind me of pumpkin bread but in cookie form. Needless to say, these were gobbled up shortly after coming out of the oven—and I’ve already been requested to make more!

This recipe was submitted by Tasty Kitchen member Cassie (BakeYourDay). Okay, here’s how to do it …

First we are going to mix all of our dry ingredients together. We’ll start with the flour.

Next add the baking powder and baking soda.

Followed by the cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice!

Throw in a little bit of salt. (Adding a touch of salt to cookies really makes them pop and enhances all the flavors!)

Take a fork and mix together all the dry ingredients and then go ahead and set it aside.

In a mixer, cream together the butter and the sugars for a few minutes.

Go ahead and add in the pumpkin.

Then add the egg and some vanilla. You can use vanilla extract or the seeds from a vanilla bean. I happened to be out of vanilla extract (gasp! I know, such a tragedy!) so I just substituted in some vanilla beans and went my merry way.

Turn the mixer on slowly and let the ingredients come together.

Add the dry ingredients in batches, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as you go.

Mix until your cookie dough looks beautiful, just like this.

Toss in the white chocolate chips and fold them into the batter.

Now’s the perfect time to lick the extra dough off the beater.

Place the cookie dough in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes. (I let it hang out in there for about an hour or two.) This is just going to let the cookie dough flavors meld together and it makes scooping the dough onto your baking sheet a bit easier!

Once the dough is chilled, using a cookie scoop place 12 small balls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and pop them in a 350ºF oven for about 13 minutes. Repeat this until you’ve used up all the cookie dough!

I made these and they were the most amazing cookies I’ve ever had! They are so addicting! I gave some to my mom, who made a batch and took to work. Everyone there raved about them as well. Best cookie recipe hands down!

Ginger G on 10.18.2011

I’m currently baking these and they look puffy :( I bet they taste floury I’m now afraid to try them and be disappointed, please help!

These look amazing! I love fall because I love making stuff w/ pumpkin. Can’t wait to make these.
Thanks!

Patti on 10.9.2011

Sorry, I meant I didn’t have any pumpkin pie spice!

Patti on 10.9.2011

Oh, and I didn’t have any allspice, so I replaced the 2 tsps of allspice with 1 teaspoon cinnamon (in addition to the cinnamon that was called for), 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves, and 1/2 tsp ginger.

Patti on 10.9.2011

I made these yesterday to take to our Fall Festival at church today – they were a hit! I baked them 10 minutes and they were soft (I like them that way). If your cookies are soft, make sure to put waxed paper between the layers of cookies, or they will stick together. I was very busy and decided not to take the time to use waxed paper and the cookies were all stuck together (but still very yummy!).

Betsy Farley on 10.9.2011

Mom and I made these today (okay I admit it was Mom), I helped by eating half a dozen. They were awesome. I have been tasked with making a “dessert” for my office halloween give-away, and have decided to make these. The office is giving away 3 prizes (most creative, most scary, best tasting). I’m hoping this will give me the best tasting. Now I’m trying to figure how I can maybe include the “creative” and have a higher chance of winning one of the gift cards! Maybe use the empty spaces on the cookie plate for white chocolate coated strawberry ghosts???

Delena on 10.9.2011

These are amazing! I made them for a party and they were gone before the end of the night. Thank you! :-)

Pam on 10.9.2011

I love the detail of the step by step photos! Thanks so much. This recipe sounds great. white chocolate is a nice change up from the norm.

Greta on 10.8.2011

Made the this afternoon to take to church tomorrow. I added some dried cranberries – really good! Thanks for the recipe

Ruchelle on 10.8.2011

I saw this recipe this morning and I ran out to the store to pick up some extra ingredients so we could enjoy these during game day. They are absolutely delicious. I did have to cook these a little longer than the recipe said but I made the adjustment and they came out perfect. Great recipe!

Katrina on 10.8.2011

These sound heavenly! Yum.

Shelly the Chic Crafty Chick on 10.7.2011

These sound incredible. I love the sweetness that white chocolate puts into cookies. And I’ve been wanting to find some good pumpkin recipes. I can’t wait to give these a try. Nothing says fall like pumpkin.

Amy S. on 10.7.2011

Just made these. Husband and kid approved! Wouldn’t change a thing. Will be making them again for sure! Wonderful!

Stacie Gorkow on 10.7.2011

Yum yum! I am planning on changing up my normal pumpkin cookie recipe for this one. The only thing I might hand onto from last year: butterscotch chips. Yum!

Trista on 10.7.2011

Pumpkin + White Chocolate Chips…. Brilliant! I will have to add this to my list of things to bake this season!

These look wonderful!
By the way, “gag” should be “egg”. I would hate to add gag to my cookies!

Urban Wife on 10.7.2011

I love pumpkin spice and go crazy using it during the fall months! The addition of white choc chips is a wonderful idea. :)

B.J. Nye on 10.7.2011

    Cinnamon chips would be equally as delicious! Or just plain chocolate chips :)
