Expert Tips

  • We love making these cookies with chocolate chips, but using chocolate chunks can offer a unique look. Most grocery stores sell chocolate chunks, but if you can’t find them, an easy way to create chunks is by chopping a chocolate baking bar into pieces.
  • This recipe includes 1/8 teaspoon of ground red pepper (cayenne) but feel free to omit this ingredient, if desired. It’s not overwhelming, it just enhances the warming effects from the pumpkin pie spice.
  • So, what’s pumpkin butter? It’s often sold during the fall season at most grocery stores near the jams and jellies. If you can’t find it in store, try searching online. Or, try making your own! Here’s Betty’s recipe for pumpkin butter.
