October Goodies

This is the time of year that I want to eat these:



and these:

(Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. Image from here.)

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are weird. They have 2 rising agents (baking soda and baking powder), and they have a LOT of eggs. That's why they're so puffy and more like muffins than cookies. Anyway, here's the Lion House recipe (warning: this makes a LOT of cookies. Like 75. But you can freeze them for enjoying later.):

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (good luck finding this in Germany, so here's a recipe)
1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin (again, good luck, but if you're dedicated you can go at a pumpkin)
3/4 cup oil
7 eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Mix together, drop onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper on it, bake for 8 minutes at 350° Fahrenheit/175° Celsius.


  1. I love you! I've been on the HUNT for a really good pumpkin choc chip cookie recipe and I will try these asap. I'll let you know the results.

  2. Thanks for sharing - love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (and Michelle too). You said a lot - how many is that?

  3. It definitely depends on how big you make the blobs, but the recipe says 5 dozen.
