Take pumpkin, and pair it with chocolate chip cookies, and there's no doubt it's a winning dessert recipe.
Using an ice cream scooper ensures each cookie is the perfect, pillowy shape and size.
Leave sufficient space between each cookie dough ball, because the dough will spread when baking.
These cookies have plenty of warming spices like cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and ginger, which will waft throughout the kitchen even hours after baking.
Muffin-like and semisweet, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies double as dessert and an excellent breakfast the next morning.
A recipe to have on hand all Winter season is for chewy gingerbread cookies. Unlike the crispy counterparts that are typically rolled, cut out in festive shapes, and decorated with royal icing, this ultramoist, molasses-rich gingerbread cookie is slice-and-bake. There's no need to be a Betty Crocker decorator, because this convenient, quick method just requires you to engage your basic log-forming skills (channel your inner kindergartener in art class).
OK, here's the hard part. The cookie dough log has to be refrigerated to moisten up and firm up before being cut. Distract yourself by eating peppermint treats for the next two hours.
The molasses makes the dough salty, so to offset that (and to add a nice crunchiness), dip one side of the cookies in a bowl of granulated sugar.
The cookies will spread as they bake, so be sure to keep them spaced out. Once the cookies have emerged from the oven, serve them with milk, eggnog, or even turn them into an ice cream sandwich with vanilla or eggnog ice cream.
As we're in the midst of cookie-exchange-party season, I couldn't resist making one of my favorites, oatmeal with chocolate chips, hazelnuts, and cocoa nibs. I love the texture of oatmeal cookies but can't stand them with raisins, so I began experimenting with different additions. It started with only chocolate chips and slowly grew to other ingredients.
After many trials, the conclusion was clear: creamy chocolate chips, roasted hazelnuts, and crunchy cocoa nibs all nestled in a chewy oatmeal cookie. The nibs are not completely necessary but do provide a more intense chocolate flavor without amplifying the sweetness. They are essential for any chocoholic. If you want to add a little more to your oatmeal cookie, keep reading.

Tried, tested, and true, heirloom recipes hold a certain appeal that is infrequently captured in cookbooks, magazines, or blogs. The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook may not be a box filled with recipe cards passed down from one generation to the next, but it aims to capture — and we'd argue, succeeds in evoking — a similar feeling by revolving around recipes from the families of Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, also known as the Beekman Boys.
In the book, Josh praises these granola-based cowboy cookies as his favorite. "They basically combine every one of my favorite things about every other good cookie into one giant cookie heaven," he writes. We'd have to agree, with one caveat: make sure to use a top-notch granola (homemade or otherwise) in these cookies, as it'll greatly dictate their flavor.
