I used to think that I was a Spring kind of girl, but the older I get I realize that Fall is my thing. There is just something in the air! The weather starts to cool down, all of my comfy sweaters get pulled out of storage, and pumpkin spice happens. Pumpkin spice is probably the greatest part of Fall to me. I love everything about it. It just makes me feel good!

How to Make Soft Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Mix together all of the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin seasoning, and salt. Next, add the softened butter and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat it until it is light and fluffy. Add the pumpkin puree, egg and vanilla.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and mix until everything is incorporated. The dough will be the consistency of muffin batter. Stir in the semi-sweet chocolate chips and 3/4 cup white chocolate chips. Place parchment paper or a silicone liner on a baking sheet. Using a two tablespoon cookie scoop, drop batter onto the baking sheet about two inches apart.
Bake at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes until the edges of the cookies are firm. Remove them from the oven and allow them to rest for two minutes, then transfer them to cooling rack.
Once cooled, heat the remaining white chocolate chips in the microwave on 50% power at 30 second intervals stirring in between until melted. Add the melted chocolate to a ziplock bag and snip off a tiny piece of the corner. Drizzle the white chocolate over the top of the cookies.
How to Make Your Cookies Mickey Mouse-Shaped
Being the Disney lover I am, I had to make one of these soft pumpkin chocolate chip cookies shaped like Mickey Mouse. To achieve this, I placed this silicone Mickey mold on the baking sheet and put the cookie dough inside. I left about a 1/4 inch space between the dough and the mold to allow the cookie to rise and expand.
Bake it for 14-16 minutes then remove it from the oven. Allow it to cool for a minute or two before transferring to a cooling rack. Carefully remove it from the mold, drizzle with white chocolate and dream about your next Disney vacation!
