It’s just what you need this time of year – a simple, velvety, and moist cookie recipe loaded with the flavors of the season. Sometimes I don’t have to travel far to find a fantastic Rescued Recipe. This one comes from my own family. It was originally my sister Vicki’s special holiday cookie – the one that everyone begged for this time of the year. But Vicki’s daughter, my niece, Gina, confesses to you a family “inside job!”
“Yes, this cookie is so yummy, I stole the recipe from Mom and shamelessly renamed it Gina’s Famous Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies! We start every year in October and make them weekly through December, or until we’re “pumpkin-ed out!” Now my own four little girls start begging for them at the beginning of the holiday season. My hope is that they one day steal it from me and call it their own!”
We’ve been experimenting lately with this family favorite. We made a batch replacing vegetable oil and white sugar with coconut oil and coconut sugar for a little healthier alternative. We love it just as much!
