Halloween Treats: Pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies

As my sister and I were Face-timing talking about how much we’re looking forward to fall, she showed me her batch of pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies that she had just baked. 

In that moment, I wish I could have reached through the screen and grab a cookie for myself. Immediately, I decided to run to the commissary, buy the ingredients and get to work: I was not disappointed with the outcome!

These cookies are the perfect fall treat and will compliment your #PSL or hot chocolate. In the mood to “fall” for these cookies? Try this recipe.
