Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies with Browned Butter Frosting 1

I should really call these cookies “I think I’ve died and gone to heaven cookies!”  Or maybe in the words of a friend… “You had me at browned butter!”   Yeah, these are amazingly delicious!  Perfect for “everything pumpkin” season!  :)  The cookie is delicate and the frosting rich and flavorful!  You won’t be disappointed in this recipe!

Cookie Recipe:

1 cup butter, softened at room temperature

1/2 cup organic sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup pureed canned pumpkin

1 egg

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/2 teaspoon cloves

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 cup good semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line 2 large jelly roll pans with parchment paper or grease well.  In a large electric bowl fitted with the paddle attachment cream together butter and sugar.  Add pumpkin and egg.  In another medium size bowl whisk together the flour, soda, powder, salt and spices.  Add to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Using a spoon, scoop 1 tablespoon of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet until pan is full.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  While the cookies bake, make the frosting.


Browned Butter Frosting:

6 tablespoons butter

2 cups powdered sugar

2-3 tablespoons milk, almond milk or soy milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

ground cinnamon

Heat butter in a small pan over medium heat.  Continue swirling pan until the butter becomes a golden brown.  Turn off heat and whisk together in a bowl the sugar, milk, vanilla and butter.   Spread frosting onto cooled cookies and sprinkle a small dash of cinnamon on top.
