Kassi’s Birthday Party: Ashton from Something Swanky: Pumpkin Heath Cookies

Happy Friday again friends! If you haven’t linked up to Fancy This yet, you can scroll down and find that post! (:
So because it’s Kassi’s birthday month, we’re still partying and today’s special guest is Ashton from Something Swanky! She has graciously agreed to share her AWESOME cookie recipe in honor of the occasion. (Because we all know how much Kassi LOVES pumpkin!)
Here she is!

Hi there all you LOVELY readers!! My name is Ashton, and I’m the blogger behind Something Swanky: Desserts and Designs! I’m super excited to be a part of this sweet surprise Kassi’s friends put together for her birthday!! What amazing gal pals!

I have been obsessed with pumpkin this year (OMG, especially those Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses– have you guys tried those?!!?), so I was thrilled to be asked to share a pumpkin recipe over here!

Nothing hits the spot in the Fall quite like a Pumpkin Cookie. And a Pumpkin Cookie with Heath?? It just doesn’t get much better than this, my friends.

I hope enjoy this recipe as much as I did! And I’d love to see you over at my place sometime!

Happy (belated) birthday, Kassi!!

Pumpkin Heath Cookies 

Recipe slightly adapted from: A Bitchin’ Kitchen

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c. semi sweet chocolate chips

  1. Beat together the butter, brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Add the egg, baking powder, vanilla, and pumpkin puree. Mix well.
  2. Mix in the flour, one cup at a time until well mixed (but don’t overmix!).
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips and heath bits using a wooden spoon or a spatula.
  4. Scoop out by rounded tablespoon onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Flatten each cookie slightly with the bottom of a glass.
  5. Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on pan before transferring to wire rack. Makes approximately 4 dozen.
