Then I worked at Paradigm and I was introduced to the most delicious Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookie ever created at Village Baker. (If you are ever just randomly driving West on 90th south in SLC... please look to your right (north) right before you get to Redwood Road and promise me you'll stop.) I am not kidding. This place is a life changer.
|Only picture I could find online of my favorite cookie.... sadly it's mostly cut off.|
But have no fear. Last night I wanted to be a good wife. Sometimes I feel guilty that I am not one. That I get home from a long hard day of teaching and all I want to do is sit on the couch and do nothing. I don't care to decorate my apartment, try to make it homey.... heck most of the time it's difficult for me to get shoes from the front door back into my closet.
So last night, Jason had another late study session, so I decided to be a good wife and have him come home to a delicious meal of homemade pizza and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies....
It was a success. And the whole point of this post is.... the recipe I used for the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies renewed my love for them!!! I got the recipe from here:
"the" pumpkin chocolate chip cookies !!!
3/4 cups canola oil (
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups sugar
1 small can of pumpkin (about a cup and a half)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
(I didn't have molasses so I ended up using 1 C dark brown sugar, 1 C sugar and 1/4 c honey. just to try and keep the same consistency)
3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
as many chocolate chips as you need.
mix wet and dry ingredients until smooth, then drop by the spoonful onto your cookie sheet using a scoop or large spoon. bake at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes, or until the middle of the cookie feels firm to the touch.
I hope I can renew your love for the most delicious cookie ever.........
