This is a partnered post with Jif. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
It’s that time of the year when the temperature begins to drop, the leaves begin to change colors, and the beloved pumpkin begins to make its way into all your favorite foods.
I usually don’t succumb to peer pressure, but food makes me excited, y’all!
These cookies make me excited! They’re so ridiculously easy to make and they taste absolutely delicious. It’s just your basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, but with a special surprise ingredient.
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup Jif Whips Pumpkin Pie Spice Spread
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate mini morsels
The key to soft cookies is to take them out of the oven before you think they're ready. The 8 minute mark is perfect for my oven, but it will vary from oven to oven. Watch the bottoms of the cookies,and once they turn a nice, golden brown, remove the cookies from the oven. They will still look like they could use a couple extra minutes, but trust me on this one.
I told you it was easy. In less than twenty minutes in the kitchen you can have decadent, melt in your mouth cookies!
I’m all about making things easy when I’m in the kitchen, and using a cookie scoop is one of my secrets for making a complete batch of cookies that almost look identical. It’s just one of those things that makes me happy — all 42 cookies displayed after they’ve come out of the oven and they’re all ridiculously similar.
I took a batch to church with me last night to share, and the feedback I got was fantastic, so I couldn’t wait to get home and share the recipe with you! This week in the kitchen had a lot of fails, so I was excited to actually get something right.
Just by using a versatile ingredient like Jif Whips Pumpkin Pie Spice Spread, I was able to take the traditional chocolate chip cookie, and make it more seasonal. I adore the light hints of flavor with the peanut butter and pumpkin pie spice, but you can definitely still tell that these are chocolate chip cookies.
The more time I spend in the kitchen, the more I grow to love it. It hasn’t always been fun to be in the kitchen, but now I can’t wait to whip up my next creation.
