Who was out shopping the after Halloween sales this weekend?? Me!! I scored so many great foodie deals, including the pumpkin chips I used in this delicious cookie recipe! I also came home with some fun fall sprinkles, Halloween oreos for my daughter and some Halloween flavored Jones Soda! The costumes were picked over already, so we didn't buy for next year, but overall it was a good shopping trip!

Gotta love everything pumpkin spice, including these delicious cookies! Pumpkin Spice Chip, Almond and Pecan Cookies from Hot Eats and Cool Reads

I'm a sucker for some great chocolate chip cookies, and these pumpkin chip cookies don't fall too far behind! I used almonds and pecans in this recipe, to clean out the cupboards, but you can use any nuts you have on hand. These cookies are soft and delicious and come out perfect everytime!

I'm not sure why I don't make cookies more often. They don't take too long to make, and they are so easy to pack up for snacks, or to gift to friends and family. I'm thinking you just might see more cookie recipes coming from me soon!

3 dozen

What you need:
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chopped pecans and almonds
1 cup pumpkin spice chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream together the sugars and butter with an electric mixer. Add the vanilla and eggs, mix until just combined. Mix in the flour and baking soda until combined. Then using a spoon, mix in the nuts and pumpkin chips until combined.

Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Using a cookie dough scooper, drop the dough onto the cookie sheets, about two inches apart. Bake for 11-12 minutes until edges are crispy. Remove from cookie sheet to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
