White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies - so soft and full of pumpkin flavor! #pumpkin #cookies #recipe

Things I’m obsessed with:

  1. Fall
  2. Colorful leaves
  3. pumpkin flavored coffee
  4. pumpkin bread
  5. pumpkin flavored candy
  6. pumpkin cookies
  7. basically, pumpkin everything
  8. Except actual straight pumpkin, because have you ever? Ew.

So, what I’m saying is that I’m so basic. I know.

I can’t help myself. I like pumpkin and you people only let me bake with it for a few short months every year, so I tend to go overboard. By the time there is snow on the ground, I’ll be just as happy as you to see the season end. But, until then, I’m still obsessed.

Today, I have a recipe for soft pumpkin cookies. The texture very much reminds me of a quick bread, but these are better because they’re cookies.

My pumpkin cookies recipe is bursting with fall flavor.

I made these cookies the other morning. They’re so moist and fluffy that I couldn’t resist eating them for breakfast.

These easy pumpkin cookies are bursting with Fall flavors. Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, it’s all in there.

They’re dotted with white chocolate chips, because hey, why not? Dark chocolate chips would be divine too, obviously.
