Directions for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl combine brown sugar, sugar, canola oil, applesauce, pumpkin, eggs and vanilla until fully incorporated.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the gluten free flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon.
  4. Pour 1/3rd of the dry mixture at a time into the wet ingredients making sure to fully combine before adding more.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Use a small cookie scoop to place mounds of the dough onto the parchment paper.
  7. Flatten out the mounds by smoothing the top with the back of a spoon; the cookies won’t go flat, so set the shape now!
