Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Tags: , , , ,


These Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chunk Cookies are buttery crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside!
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chunk Cookies

A couple weeks ago, my family took off to California for the boys’ Fall Break.  We visited Disneyland and I savored every bite of my favorite Peanut Butter Sandwich that you can find at Pooh Corner Bakery tucked in the corner of Critter Country behind Splash Mountain.  The inside peanut butter layer is thick and the outside chocolate layer is creamy and fabulous.  My cookie today was inspired by my favorite Disneyland treat, the Peanut Butter Sandwich.  In fact, I re-created the recipe of that Peanut Butter Sandwich HERE if you are interested.

Baking cookies must be therapy for me, because it seems like I bake a batch everyday….well, just about.  I had so much fun developing this festive peanut butter cookie with just a hint of pumpkin pie spices.  All of my favorite things.

Hope you enjoy!

    Oh my gosh I love these. Peanut butter and pumpkin go so well together, I bet pumpkin spice is even better!

    A Young Wife says:

    I love that peanut butter sandwhich too! I think this is my top three favorite cookies all rolled into one. My husband always wants chocolate chip cookies, we both love peanut butter, and I want to eat pumpkin flavored desserts all the time. I think I might have to rename this the compromise cookie! I can’t wait to try it!

  21. 21

    everything about these cookies sounds amazing!!

    Joyce says:

    Hi Jenny,

    These sound amazing! Question on the pudding though: it is “instant” pudding, as in the photo?
    Also, do you have a favorite chocolate to use?

  23. 23

    This is an ideal October cookie – it has it all!

  24. 24

    […] salty-peanut butter, and sweet chocolate. I see no problems here. Even bloggers such as Jenny (Picky Palate), Sommer (A Spicy Perspective), and Jessica (How Sweet It Is) are in on the pumpkin+peanut butter […]

    Ashley says:

    If I want to leave out the PB do I need to replace it with anything? or will the cookies turn out just fine w/o it?
    I always love your cookie recipes.

  26. 26
