Make it Count with Pumpkin Choc Chip Cookies
These Pumpkin and Choc Chip Cookies are really tasty and the perfect baking activity for the family. The kids won’t even realise that they are packed with veggies aka, butternut. The dough can be made ahead and kept in the fridge until the little ones are ready to start their baking experiment the kitchen.
How to Make Pumpkin Choc Chip Cookies
For this recipe you can use mashed pumpkin with all the delicious Christmas spices we love so dear. Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg and Cloves are what Santa’s dreams are made of, flavours that are just so comforting and delicious. They turned out so delicious, with a crispy edge and fluffy, chewy centre.
Pumpkin and Choc Chip Match Made in Heaven
The combination of Pumpkin and Chocolate might seem strange, but it really is a match made in heaven. You can also try mashed sweet potato in this recipe, as it also lends itself to other flavours and because of the natural sweetness it has. I might just go all out and develop a veggie packed choc chip cookie next! Enjoy!
