Pumpkin White Chocolate Doodles

Cookie Monster really had the right idea you know?? There is no greater pleasure in this world than a fresh baked cookie. Give me a glass of milk and I'm all set.

My mom makes the BEST homemade chocolate chip cookies. After a long day at school, it was so nice to come home to the sight of fresh from the oven gooey chocolatey cookies...cooling on a paper towel.

Well, these ain't momma's cookies. This recipe for pumpkin white chocolate doodles comes from my weakness for pumpkin and the need to satisfy my craving for chocolate, well, white chocolate. These cookies have a light and fluffy texture with a nice balance of flavor.

Check out my cute little helper :)

1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup applesauce

1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups white chocolate chips

In a bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, applesauce, and egg. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and add to the flour. Stir well. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
Add vanilla and chocolate chips.
Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.

The result is this yummy soft cookie!!
