White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies with Marshmallows
Pumpkin is such a versatile ingredient that I like to incorporate it into all kinds of baked goods in the fall and winter. Pumpkin pies are always a hit, but there are times when I prefer to bake cookies, since they’re easier to transport and serve to a crowd. These White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies with Marshmallows are a fun chocolate chip cookie variation loaded with familiar spices that is perfect for any fall occasion.

Most pumpkin cookies are cakey, but I prefer my chocolate chip cookies to have a chewier texture and a slightly crisp edge. And even though they are loaded with pumpkin, these are still chocolate chip cookies at their heart! If you want cakey pumpkin cookies, check out these whoopie pies – which can be made with or without the delicious caramel filling – and add them to your fall menu.

I find that white chocolate is actually a great match for pumpkin spice in this recipe. While you could substitute in regular chocolate chips, the deep cocoa flavor of dark chocolate tends to take over the cookies and leave you with more chocolate than pumpkin in each bite. White chocolate, on the other hand, brings in a creamy vanilla sweetness that contrasts well with the cinnamon and other spices in the cookie dough. You’ll be able to taste all of the spices and the pumpkin alongside the white chocolate. You’ll get the best results with real white chocolate that is made with cocoa butter, rather than other vegetable fats, as real white chocolate chips are much creamier and less sweet than the “vanilla-flavored chips” you can buy.

I added the marshmallows to the cookies on a whim and I loved how they turned out. They added just the right amount of extra caramelized sweetness and a nice extra chewiness to the cookies. Be sure to use mini marshmallows, as they full sized marshmallows are just too big for this particular recipe.

The cookies will keep well for several days after baking, as the pumpkin brings in just the right amount of moisture to keep them from getting stale quickly. They will remain chewy, but will loose the crispness around the edge when stored in an airtight container. I still think they’re delicious and have even been known to double this batch just to ensure that I have some leftovers after a big party. Serve them with coffee, tea or hot chocolate as a treat for yourself if you’re not entertaining!

White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies with Marshmallows
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, spices, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, pumpkin puree and vanilla extract until very well combined. Gradually stir in the flour mixture, mixing just until no streaks of dry ingredients remain. Stir in chocolate chips to evenly distribute them, followed by the mini marshmallows
Shape dough into generous 1-inch balls and arrange on baking sheet, leaving about 1 1/2 inches between each cookie to allow for spread.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are set and very lightly browned on the edges. Allow cookies to cool for 4-6 minutes on the baking sheet, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.

Vegan baking doesn’t need to mean buying tons of hard-to-find, expensive ingredients from health food stores. It’s come a long way, and if you’re armed with some basic pantry staples like coconut oil, dairy-free milk (anything from almond to soy to coconut will do), and almond butter, you’re already in good shape. Our top 10 vegan cookies range from classics like sugar and gingerbread cookies to sweet variations on chocolate chip cookies. In one recipe, we added maple syrup and olive oil, and another calls for a sprinkling of flaky sea salt on top of each dough ball.

For years, dairy-free baked goods like vegan cookies and cakes got a bad rap for being dense, not sweet enough, not fluffy enough, and all-around not good enough. We guarantee that these recipes will prove the haters wrong and give them something satisfying to snack on. So, grab a baking sheet, a spatula, a couple of bowls, and let’s get baking!

Like so many people, I downloaded TikTok last spring as everything was shutting down. It offered a bit of entertainment during a very unsettling time. And along with my friend Stephie and Joshua Weissman, it taught me how to make one hell of a loaf of sourdough bread.

I was all-in and even bought a fermentation station – if you know, you know.

Over a year later, I still love TikTok and if I’m being honest, my FYP is pretty much loaded with food and beauty content. I love finding simple recipes to make for dinner while learning which new highlighter is all the rage.

Many months ago, I stumbled upon a recipe for Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies and I could not get them off my mind. Although I didn’t save the recipe, I did remember that the creator used the recipe for Tasty’s Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, but browned the butter first.

And let me tell you, this creates one magical cookie. 

If you’ve been around here for any amount of time, you know that my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe is the New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies. But not everyone wants to go purchase cake and bread flours to make a cookie recipe. 

And not everyone has 24 hours to let the dough chill.

These Brown Butter Chocolate Chip cookies are right up there with the New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies and a few of my friends think they’re even better! They’re super simple to make and don’t require special ingredients, or a 24-hour chill time.

Chocolate chip cookies are a topic of great debate in my family. Eric and my dad prefer thin and super crispy cookies – think Tate’s Bake Shop cookies.

In fact, they’re both obsessed with Tate’s cookies. I’ve tried my best to replicate them at home using the published Tate’s recipe and they’re just not the same.

Then there’s my mom’s boyfriend who will pretty much eat any cookie that crosses his path. And this girl, I’m kind of a fan of crisp edges with chewy centers – the New York Times chocolate chip cookie recipe will forever be my favorite chocolate chip cookies.

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches
Homemade ice cream sandwiches are one of my favorite treats to fill the freezer with during the summer. They’re satisfying when you want something bigger than a popsicle, but still cool you down when it is hot outside. These Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches are made with thin, chewy chocolate chip cookies and sandwich chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. They’re a chocolate chip cookie-lover’s delight – and one batch will provide you with plenty of ice cream sandwiches!

The recipe starts out with the homemade cookies. These cookies use a bit more brown sugar than some cookie recipes, which helps give them a chewy texture and provides a little more spread. When it comes to cookies for ice cream sandwiches, you don’t want something too hard or too thick. They’re buttery and have plenty of chocolate chips.

While I don’t always think you need a portion scoop to make cookies, it is nice to use one for this recipe. A portion scoop (looks like a small ice cream scoop) will allow your cookies to all come out the same size and shape. If you don’t have one, just spend an extra few seconds per cookie dough ball making sure everything is about even. Spending a little extra time on prep means that pairing up your sandwich cookies will be easier!

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches

Once the cookies have baked and cooled, it’s time to fill them with ice cream. You can use store bought or homemade for this recipe, but the ice cream should be slightly softened to make it easier to work with. I always use chocolate chip cookie dough, as that adds just another layer of chocolate chip cookie goodness to each of these ice cream sandwiches. That said, you can use any flavor and chocolate, vanilla or Rocky Road all work well, too. Use a dry ingredient measuring cup (1/4 or 1/3 is usually good) to scoop out the ice cream and shape it, then pop it between two cookies and squish them together. You’ll want to get the cookies into the freezer as quickly as possible so they can set up, so place them on a baking sheet for about 15 minutes while you work. Once they have chilled slightly, individually wrap them in bags, plastic wrap or aluminum foil and freeze until ready to serve!

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Approx 1/2 gal cookie dough ice cream
OR 1 batch homemade vanilla ice cream with homemade cookie dough bits
mini chocolate chips or finely chopped chocolate, for decorating

Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and creamy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, followed by vanilla extract. Stir in the flour mixture until dry ingredients have been completely incorporated, then stir in chocolate chips and mini chocolate chips.
Shape into 1-inch balls and arrange on prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2-inches between cookies to allow for spread.
Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until cookies are set around the edges.
Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Assembly: Pair up chocolate chip cookies according to size. Place a cup or so of mini chocolate chips or chopped chocolate in a medium bowl.
Using a 1/4 cup or 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop out portions of cookie dough ice cream and place between each pair of cookies. Squish cookies together slightly to spread ice cream, then roll edges in mini chocolate chips or chopped chocolate.
Transfer sandwiches to a baking sheet in the freezer to chill for about 15 minutes, then individually wrap and freeze until frozen.

Makes about 18 sandwiches.
