It has been a while since I baked a tasty treat and when I saw this little gem on my favorite site, Skinnytaste.com I knew that leftover pumpkin puree in the fridge had a purpose! This recipe creates a fluffy, delicious cookie that can be eaten alone or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

- 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tbsp butter, melted
- 1 egg white
- 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°. Line two cookie sheets with non-stick silicone baking liners such as Silpats (I highly recommend for best results) or lightly spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, salt and pumpkin spice; stir to blend. In another bowl, whisk the sugars, butter, egg white, pumpkin puree and vanilla together until light and fluffy.
Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in two additions until the batter is very well blended. If the batter looks more “crumbly” than smooth, add just a drop of water at a time (ONLY if needed) until it smooths out.
Drop by level spoonfuls about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets.
Bake 8 – 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let them stand 5 minutes before removing the cookies from the pans to cool on wire racks.
Makes 2 dozen cookies.
