You may be asking, “but wait, where are the eggs?” Well, when I was researching on how to use pumpkin in recipes (yep, I’m nerdy like that) I read that the pumpkin acts as the egg so adding egg is not always necessary. I also read that draining the pumpkin before using it will help give you a better texture to your baked goods.
This recipe is pretty straight forward for these pumpkin chai cookies. There is nothing complicated to it, and it follows methods most cookies use. Cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the pumpkin and vanilla. Mix in the dry ingredients. TA-DA! The one thing this recipe requires is chilling time. I think it makes the dough easier to handle and gives them that nice pillowy shape.
The one thing I especially love about these cookies is that they are not super sweet! They do get a nice coating of sugar before baking but even then they have the perfect level of sweetness. The perfect treat to wrap up your evening or start your day!
