I have been waiting impatiently, which is the only way I wait by the way, for it to be socially acceptable to begin making pumpkin goodies. I don’t know why, but baking with pumpkin makes me giddy. I decided to start my pumpkin season out with a bang. These Chewy Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies are pillowy soft and perfectly moist. They practically melt in your mouth.
And the frosting! Oh, the frosting! Brown butter lends a subtle hint of flavor that sets these cookies apart from any others you’ll find out there.
But was that enough for a pumpkin season opener? Oh no. Not at AHC. I added a smattering of milk chocolate chips to half the batter. Not enough to detract from the pumpkin magnificence but just enough to make your eyes pop open and say, “Oh wow that’s good!”
