I got about 4-5 emails asking for more Trader Joe's pumpkin butter recipes after the pumpkin butter crunch bars were such a hit.
Seriously all I need is one email and I'm on it.
I love getting requests. And who knew pumpkin butter could be so much fun to bake with?
So these pumpkin butter cookies do have a slight crunch to them, they are NOT cake-like.I just hate the way that some pumpkin cookies are cake-like; just not into that.
The only cake-like cookies I like are devils' food.
These cookies are fairly easy to make. If you had to have a hard part? You have to let them chill
overnight to firm up--that's it.
So I added walnuts and cinnamon chips to this for some extra texture and crunch.
The cinnamon chips are a nice touch.
But be careful using cinnamon chips as too much in the batter and they taste chemically--just use
a little bit and you get that nice "cinnamon" taste in the background.
Sounds like we're talking about wine.....
Can you use pecans, sure.
What about chocolate chips? I wouldn't, but feel free to experiment!
Are these cookies overwhelmingly pumpkiny? Nooooooo! (thank goodness)
They have a slight crunch on the outside.
I made my cookies giant (shocker I know), but if you make them smaller they should have even
more of a crunch.
If you make them smaller, watch the baking times!
The cinnamon chips are so tasty in this batter.
Normally I hate cinnamon chips because they are so, well....chemically tasting? Is that a good
description? BUt in this batter they taste good.
Self explanatory baking times guide.
I had planned on taking more photos but I left the cookies alone for five hours and they were gone.
