Weekend Baking: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hello Monday!

This weekend I:

1. Split this black & white cupcake from Sprinkles with AR on Friday night. Friday was a rough day, so we got a cupcake to share and watched the season premier of Nashville (is he a winner or what?).

Sprinkles will always have a soft spot in my heart because AR lived a few blocks from one in Houston and we went there on a lot of dates when we first started dating :)

2. Went to the North Georgia State Fair and saw Craig Campbell perform. I also got to pet this adorable goat. Unpictured: the goat that tried to eat AR's shirt a few minutes later, haha!

3. Got new running shoes for the marathon! This is my 5th pair of Saucony Triumphs and I still love them!! For shorter runs, I stick to my Saucony Kinvaras, but these are my marathon shoes. I got a new pair and broke them in with 10 rainy miles on Sunday.

Notice how them match my teal hat. Now I need to find the perfect shirt :) #ilikematchingrunninggear

4. Baked these amazing pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

I bought a LOT of pumpkin at Whole Foods this weekend. I like it in my oatmeal, in cookies, in soup...everything. After searching for a recipe, I decided on this one from Pop Sugar.

The result: A soft, pillowy cookie with gooey chocolate chips and lots of cinnamon flavor! I really like this cookie - it is kind of like a muffin inside, which works well with the pumpkin. Next time I may eliminate the egg and add less pumpkin to get a chewier texture, but these were awesome!

Any good pumpkin recipes to share with me??
