Pumpkin Spice Cookies with White Chocolate Drizzle


Pumpkin Cookies with White Chocolate Drizzle

It’s PSE season, meaning Pumpkin Spice Everything! And of course, everything includes cookies! In this blog post I will show you how to make pumpkin spice cookies with or without a white chocolate drizzle. This is the sweet, delicious and warm dessert that you need in your recipe rotation this fall.

Pumpkin Cookies with White Chocolate Drizzle

First, let’s talk pumpkins. Pumpkins are a type of winter squash, botanically classified as a fruit, as it’s filled with seeds and pulp. We usually treat squash more as a savory food, but the flesh of a pumpkin pairs well with various types of sweeteners, including honey, molasses, brown sugar, and white sugar. In addition to pumpkin’s compatibility with sweeteners, they mix well with warm spices, including cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger and more. In my opinion, this is what makes pumpkins so popular during the fall season. With all the different ways that pumpkin can be prepared, it is as versatile as any food can be.

So what about the process? These cookies are super simple to make. The most important baking tip for stress-free baking is “mise en place.” This is the French phrase that basically means to get completely organized before baking. Start with a clean work space. Read the recipe in its entirety, gather all of your equipment and ingredients, and then measure everything out (you don’t need separate tiny bowls for everything—check the recipe instructions to see when each ingredient is added and group them in bowls or liquid measuring cups accordingly). Honestly, when I first heard about mise en place, I avoided it because it seemed like extra work that would make my baking process even longer. Oh no, that is far from the truth! Organization is a saving grace in the kitchen. Do yourself a favor and get organized first before trying a new recipe. It’s smooth sailing for this recipe once you get all of your ingredients measured. Just dump them into the mixer in the correct order and that’s it!

These cookies are light, fluffy, and delicious! They have more of a soft cake-like consistency and puff up rather than spread out during the cooking process. I usually prefer a less cakey cookie, but trust me, these are addictive! The pumpkin flavor is not overwhelming. The cookie is just sweet enough to handle a little white chocolate drizzle. Of course, this is optional and the cookies are amazing either way. However, the drizzle does make them a truly special fall treat. I hope that you have enjoyed this blog and you have an opportunity to try this recipe!

Fresh out of the oven!
