Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies #choctoberfest

Can one have too many pumpkin cookies?  I don’t think so, there’s always something new to try to keep perfecting those recipes!

I was thinking about pumpkin cookies again, especially since this month’s Fantastical Food Fight theme is Pumpkin!  I got to wondering if I’d ever made a pumpkin chocolate chip pudding cookie.

I remembered making a pumpkin spice cookie using a special pumpkin spice pudding mix I found that year, but never felt compelled to make them again. 

I knew I had made a yummy chocolate chip pumpkin cookie last year - those were rolled in sugar and did not include pudding. 

High time to try another version, said I .

These cookies were so popular, that they were devoured almost immediately by Dude and he’s been begging me to make some more ever since (which I am planning to as soon as I roast the pie pumpkins sitting in my kitchen and make some more puree!)
