Have you ever tried the infamous LilaLoa chocolate sugar cookie? Ok, if you have then you know and if you haven’t, stop and go make them. I’ll wait (foot tapping)…
Huh? huh? awesome right! Possibly the best cookie ever. But it’s that time of the year where there is pumpkin in everything and so I thought, what the heck, let’s see if I can “pumpkinize” this cookie.
Now first I emailed Georganne to see if she would be ok with me doing this and of course she said yes, because she’s awesome! I did tell her that if it went well she would get all the kudos and if it didn’t we would never speak of it again. So since I’m telling you all about it, guess which way it went?
It wasn’t a hard translation, I just took one 1/2 cup of butter out and inserted 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree. Simple and wonderful.
The cookies are a little more “cakey” with a very rich flavour. I honestly think that pumpkin really enhances chocolate, plus the slightly lower calories and fat content doesn’t hurt either. It honestly isn’t much but it makes me feel better when I eat like 10 of them.
For the original recipe you can find it here. You can spend some time looking around too, lots of fun stuff to see at Georganne’s Lilaloa.
Now with this awesome recipe, I made my good friend some birthday cookies.
Thanks for looking!
