Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips can easily substitute dark chocolate

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425° F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix together with a fork.
  • Add the cubed butter into the flour mixture and, using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the butter is slightly broken down into the size of small pebbles.
  • Add the pumpkin, heavy cream and egg to the dry mixture and combine together with a fork. When it's almost completely incorporated, add the 2/3 cups of chocolate chips and combine, being careful not to overmix. The batter should just hold together.
  • Using a 1/2-cup scoop, form mounds out of the dough. Place the mounds of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes before baking.
  • Place the baking sheet into your preheated oven and bake for 13-15 minutes.
  • To serve warm, heat in microwave for 15 seconds.
