I've made these on multiple holiday occasions, they're brightly colored and taste delicious. The original recipe called for chocolate chips, which I'm sure taste wonderful, but I've been making them with peanut butter chips from the very beginning. Soft, melty, delicious. :)
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
1½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 can (15 oz.) Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups (12 oz. pkg.) peanut butter morsels
Preheat oven to 375F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl; set aside.
Beat butter and sugar in large mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in pumpkin, eggs, and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
