white chocolate pumpkin snickerdoodles.

Posted by

Here’s the first, but not last, fall recipe of the season!  I decided to start off with a sweet one 🙂 !  Obviously I had to incorporate pumpkin… and everyone loves cookies. So here we have white chocolate pumpkin snickerdoodles!  A mix between a chocolate chip cookie and a snickerdoodle with some pumpkin and spices thrown in there to make your taste buds pop!  Did I mention that these cookies were super soft and chewy? They also absorb milk perfectly (vanilla almond milk mixed with cinnamon – as pictured) – my favorite kind of cookie!

note: this recipe can be made vegan using the earth balance butter spread and omitting the white chocolate chips

RECIPE:

  • 1 & 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour or pastry flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup earth balance butter spread or regular butter (softened)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • extra white sugar & cinnamon for coating

 INSTRUCTIONS:

  • with an electric mixer, beat butter, pumpkin, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla until smooth
  • in a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves together
  • add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in about 3 increments, mixing after each addition
  • add white chocolate chips and mix
  • place batter into freezer for about 20 minutes or refrigerator for about an hour to make the dough easier to handle (dough will be a bit wet)
  • in a small bowl, mix about 1/4 cup white sugar and about 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • roll into 1 inch balls and roll them in cinnamon sugar mixture
  • place on greased or non-stick baking sheet and press down slightly on each cookie to make it flatter on top
  • bake at 375 degrees for about 10-12 minutes
  • cool on wire rack

enjoy!
