Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Now that September is here, I have really been using a ton of pumpkin in the kitchen. Most of it has been canned pumpkin, but I have to say that once sugar pumpkins are available around New England, I am going to make some fresh pumpkin treats. For now, canned pumpkin is sufficing in my many baked goods.
Since my daughter has to eat a gluten free diet, I have been adapting all my recipes to suit her dietary restrictions. Since pretty much everyone loves chocolate chip cookies I decided to try a Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe. This is a much more cakey cookie, and not as chewy as a traditional chocolate chip cookie, but they were a hit!
These cookies were pretty tiny, and lasted about three days. I made close to 36 cookies because I have a tendency to make odd shaped balls. I really need to work on measuring out my cookies so that they are all pretty consistent. I currently have four cookie sheets so I pretty much did three batches of 12 in less than a half hour.
I usually make my own gluten free flour blend, but I did cheat and uses the King Arthur Gluten Free Flour Blend. It is by far my favorite pre-made flour blend, and tastes really close to regular flour. As mentioned, I also used canned pumpkin for this Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe.
- 1 1/2 cup & 2 tablespoons of King Arthur Gluten Free Flour Blend
- 1/2 cup & 2 tablespoons of white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon on baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
- 6 tablespoons of canned or pureed (drained) pumpkin
- 4 tablespoons of melted butter
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Mix your dry ingredients thoroughly
In a Kitchen Aid, or stand mixer; mix in the melted butter and pumpkin
Beat in the egg
Fold in your chocolate chips
Roll the batter into tiny 1 inch balls
Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet
Bake for 10-15 minutes until the bottom of the cookie is golden brown, and the top feels firm.
Allow your cookies to completely cool before placing them on a platter, or eating them.
I hope your family enjoys our Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe as much as we did.
