I’m kicking off the many Make & Taste pumpkin fall recipes with this family tradition: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies! These were a staple in my husband’s home growing up and I’m happy to now bake them for our family. Just smelling the cookies bake in the oven brings back great memories.
This recipe has many places where your toddler can help. First, pouring and whisking all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Then using the stand mixer they can add ingredients, change the mixer speed and combine them as the recipe requires. The last step might be their favorite, adding the mini-chocolate chips. My son tested a few before pouring them into the bowl, but who could blame him. Enjoy baking these cookies and the great aroma that fills your home. Happy Fall!
