Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble.

Happy Thanksgiving week. What better way to celebrate than with pumpkin cookies, which are filled with chocolate chips, and then drizzled with cinnamon swirl icing? Well, I guess you could celebrate with pumpkin pie, but that just seems so dull and unimaginative.

I’m having a hard time comprehending that it has been a year since last Thanksgiving. Why is time moving so fast? It seems like only a few months ago I was making this potato dish and these deviled eggs to take to my parents’ house for the big day.

I’m still in the process of trying to decide what dishes to arrive with for this year’s holiday meal. Of course, there will be a tray of deviled eggs along for the ride, but I have no idea if they will be my original famous deviled eggs, one of the many other scrumptious deviled egg recipes that I have created, or an entirely new and “egg”citing recipe to surprise everyone with. Any ideas?

I feel like I also need to make a dessert to bring along as well, and haven’t decided as of yet what that dessert should be. Maybe these cookies? Maybe these cookies with vanilla bean ice cream sandwiched in between? Hells bells, maybe these cookies without the cinnamon swirl, dipped in chocolate, and then sprinkled with a tiny bit of sea salt? So many options. I can’t decide. No matter what I decide to make, I’m sure it will be gobbled up. Get it? Gobbled up?

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble.

Suggestions:

  • This cookie will make between 5 and 6 dozen cookies.
  • Use your favorite chocolate chip in this recipe. I used gigantic chocolate chips because I could not remember where I hid the miniature ones in my kitchen. Of course, I found them the very next morning. If I could get in a time machine and travel back to the moment of chocolate chip addition, I definitely would have gone with the miniature chocolate chips.

Improvements:

  • Replace half of the cinnamon in this recipe with pumpkin pie spice.
  • Add finely chopped pecans to the cookie dough.
