Since we’ve been pumpkin crazy lately, I thought I would create some pumpkin cookies. My goal was to use up the Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix that I had in the cabinet. I also somehow accumulated 4 bags of white chocolate chips so I added them, too. If you know me at all by now, you know I only do easy recipes!
If you’re not eager to dissect and remove the innards of a pumpkin, a can of pure pumpkin works just fine in this cookie recipe. However, if you find yourself carving pumpkins anyway, use the tool above to get the nice, fresh stuff!
Pumpkin Cookies Recipe
After a few whoopsies in the kitchen (like, waxed paper cannot go in the oven – DUH – supposed to use parchment paper), these cookies turned out to be scrumptious. Clearly, I can use some #Thanksgivingtips!

Check out Good Cook Bakeware and make sure you have everything that you need before the holiday craziness. They have high quality items at great prices. That’s another thing I am learning – to take inventory of my kitchen before tackling any holiday baking. Am I using baking soda that expired in 2009? Does my cookie sheet look like it’s been in the road? Where’s the other arm for my mixer? You get the point. Baking for the holidays should be fun – not stressful. Get organized first so you can enjoy the experience with your family.
