The first time I had the pumpkin chocolate combination was in this favorite quick bread recipe for chocolate chip pumpkin bread. Then I tried with glazed pumpkin chocolate chip scones and chocolate truffle pumpkin pound cake. More success so a cookie was the next step.

Start with great ingredients to make a great cookie.

You know I love using the best ingredients and for these cookies I started with pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract from Adams Extracts. I always get excellent results when I use products from Adams. They also make a clear vanilla extract perfect for vanilla buttercream.

Iced chocolate pumpkin spice cookies are cake-like cookie that's not too sweet.

This is a cake cookie. The chocolate chips give the texture a bit of a snap and a touch of sweet. The glaze adds another layer of flavor but doesn’t add much sweetness. These cookies didn’t last long around my house. The recipe makes enough to share too.

Adams Extract

Prize 2 – Adams Extract Prize Pack

Adams traces its beginnings back to Battle Creek, Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract, Adamur, in 1888. In 1905, he moved his family to Beeville, TX. At the time, most vanilla sold to pharmacies and was often labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” John A. Adams’ wife yearned for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out. He announced that he could produce a better vanilla than the one his wife was currently using. Working with just $6.71 worth of materials on top of an old icebox, John A. Adams discovered the formula he wanted. To test this product, his wife whipped up a cake for the family to try. “John, this is the BEST flavoring I have ever used,” she announced. “Well, that’s old man Adams BEST,” he responded.
