1 1/2cups(204 grams) Bob’s Red Mill Organic All Purpose White Flour*
3/4cup(150 grams) granulated sugar
1/4cup(50 grams) light brown sugar
1/3cup(75 grams) pumpkin puree
3/4cup(128 grams) semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Brown the butter:
In a small saucepan set over medium heat, melt the butter. Swirling the pan occasionally, continue to cook the butter. It should become foamy with audible cracking and popping noises.
Once the crackling stops, continue to swirl the pan until the butter develops a nutty aroma and brown bits start to form at the bottom. Once the bits are amber in color, about 2 to 3 minutes after the popping stops, remove from heat and pour into a medium mixing bowl, being sure to scrape all the brown bits into the bowl too. Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar to the hot butter and stir to combine. Let cool.
Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar to the hot butter and stir to combine. Let cool.
Make the cookies:
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.
To the butter mixture, add the egg yolk and vanilla, stirring to combine. Stir in pumpkin puree until smooth. Add the flour mixture in 3 batches, mixing well after each addition, until a soft dough forms. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Cover and chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes, or until firm enough to scoop. You can also portion the dough and refrigerate the dough balls, well covered, for up to 48 hours, which will intensify the flavors.
Using a spring-loaded cookie scoop or a spoon, roll the dough into 1 1/2-tablespoon sized balls and place on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until set and edges are lightly browned.
Let cool completely. Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Pumpkin flavor will intensify after a day.
*If using a different brand of all-purpose flour, such as Gold Medal or King Arthur, use 190 grams.
