Who doesn’t love a Gingerbread cookie, but bump it up a notch with pumpkin AND chocolate chips! These cookies are delicious and a great fall treat. I added more flour to keep the cookies from spreading, perhaps because of the gluten-free flour I used. I would make these again and try with all-purpose flour and they would equally as good!
Soft Batch Pumpkin Gingersnap Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter or vegan butter, softened to room temperature
- 1-3/4 cups sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 2-1/3 cups gluten-free 1:1 or “cup for cup” baking flour blend (I added 1/2 cup additional flour after baking the first pan–see before & after photo below)
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 4-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger, divided
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Morsels (I used Nestle)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees then line a half sheet pan with a silpat or parchment paper and set aside.
- Add butter and 1 cup sugar to the bowl of an electric mixer or large glass bowl if using a handheld mixer. Beat until lightly and fluffy. Add pumpkin puree, molasses, and vanilla then beat until combined. Add egg then mix until just combined.
- In a separate bowl stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, 1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger, ground cloves, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients in two batches, mixing until just combined before adding the second batch. Add dark chocolate morsels then mix until just combined.
- Stir together remaining 3/4 cup sugar and 3 teaspoons ground ginger in a bowl then scoop cookie dough by the Tablespoon into the mixture and roll to coat. Place onto prepared baking sheet then bake for 7-8 minutes (7-1/2 minutes were perfect for mine.) Rap the sheet pan on the counter (aka drop the sheet pan from a couple inches above the countertop onto the countertop) then let cookies cool slightly before transferring to cooling racks to cool completely.
