Frosted Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies

by Courtney on October 5, 2012


I’m sure most of you probably have your eyes peeled for a recipe after reading that post title.

Don’t worry, I promise it’s down below here. Just a couple quick things to share first.

Like today’s lunch. Another incredible wrap happened today, thanks to…


  • A whole wheat, low-carb LaTortilla Factory wrap
  • lots of avocado
  • fresh spinach
  • leftover roasted tomatoes (which I just realized I never even shared with you from Monday)
  • provolone cheese
  • turkey bacon

It was one of those days where it was exactly what I was looking for. Gotta love that!


I finished up the rest of my bag of baby carrots with some hummus at lunch today…good news, there was only one dud out of the seven that were left. Winking smile

Why I ever decided to leave seven baby carrots in the bag is beyond me.

Before lunch happened, I also managed to get in a solid, hour-long walk on the treadmill this morning…complete with cheesy smiling Instagram pics and all.

I had to test out my new Reebok #getafterit t-shirt that was sent to me earlier this week (thanks, guys!). I’d been eyeballing them ever since HLS when I saw a bunch of the employees wearing them, so I was pretty psyched to have my own.

In case you’re interested, they’re available for sale online for both women AND men…

Super comfy – perfect for a workout or just lounging around the house. Smile


Now, what I’m sure many of you are looking for…cookieeeeeeeees.


Well over a year ago, a friend of mine sent over a recipe that he found from somewhere for pumpkin cookies. I’d kept it in my email inbox all this time, and just never got around to making them until yesterday.

I know, I’m as shocked as you are.

I didn’t follow everything in the recipe, but I did use it as a great guide to create my own little variation. Rather than making the maple glaze that it called for, I decided that they’d be even better with a generous spread of my Honey Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting.


Plus a few extra sprinkles, of course. Winking smile

The cookies come out super soft and are actually even more like a puffy cake than a cookie. But, you know…they were baked on a cookie sheet, so they’re still cookies in my book.

Happy Friday, friends! Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. Smile

Yummo!!! I am always perplexed as to what to do about pumpkin baked goods in our house… Cody doesn’t like pumpkin (what the heck is wrong with him?!), so I’m left with it all to myself so I usually stay away from making too many unhealthy pumpkin goodies. BUT I’m thinking these cookies need to make an appearance pretty darn soon regardless. The baby will help me eat them, right?! ;)

I actually really enjoy cakey cookies, so these sound fantastic! It’s Thanksgiving weekend for us up here in Canada, so I’ll definitely be keeping these in mind when picking what dessert I want to bring!

This is funny about the “cake cookies” because I tried to make banana cookies and they turned out more like muffins…so I called them muffin top cookies. ;)

That frosting sounds AMAZING!

I love cookies but cake puffs seem pretty good on my books…consider them flattened cupcakes :)

Those look amazing, but the only thing is so many ppl I know don’t like things that are “overly sweet”. Maybe if I left off the frosting…?

These cookies look too good. I think anything with frosting is just dreamy. In fact, everything should have frosting on it! haha

They look so good! Even if they are pumpkin. Frosted cookies aren’t something you see everyday too- well over here atleast. Maybe when you open your cupcake business you can specialise in frosted cookies too ;)
