Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

With a twist! 

Every year as fall approaches the thought of everything pumpkin is in the air! People who are a fan, love it. People who aren't... not so much. I'm proud to admit this is a full blown pumpkin lover household. I mean, I don't touch things like Oreos and Chips with the flavor. But we love it in baked goods and pies

There's Molasses in My Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe combines the flavor of molasses with pumpkin and though it may sound a bit crazy, it is absolutely amazing.  The base of the cookie is not as strong as traditional molasses cookies, the addition of pumpkin spice lightens it up even more.  But Wait! We didn't stop there...  chocolate chips are in this pumpkin molasses cookie.

Oh yes. Together they make a moist, soft yummy pumpkin cookie that will have your friends and family saying "Wow, really? I would have never thought of that!". They are delicious.

What is Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin spice is a general term given to a pumpkin food item that has warm spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg added to it. There is also a spice blend sold in stores called Pumpkin Pie Spice. Add a dash or two of that to anything, especially coffee, and you will instantly taste the flavor!
