School started this week in Georgia, which means that fall is right around the corner. Yikes! How did summer slip by so fast?? Once the kids go back to school, I know it won’t be long until the pumpkin spice explosion hits the world. Everybody goes crazy over pumpkin spice, and I can’t blame them. The cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg flavors make my taste buds rejoice. It is truly one of my favorite fall flavors. In preparation for the pumpkin spice invasion of 2019, I’m upping my cookie game and making these AMAZING chewy pumpkin spice cookies.
These cookies are the perfect combination of pumpkin spices and have a secret ingredient to make them extra chewy! Did you know that you can add Karo® Corn Syrup to your favorite cookie recipe in place of sugar to make your cookies super chewy and delicious? Karo® Corn Syrup has been in my cupboard for decades (it is a staple of southern cuisine, after all) but I really only thought it was used for pecan pie at Thanksgiving or as a sweet topping for pancakes. I never thought about using it in my everyday baking until a friend suggested it. Y’all, it is a game changer! Karo® Corn Syrup is the perfect ingredient that makes cookies chewier on the outside and still soft in the middle.
I tried this hack recently, and my mind was blown! My regular chocolate chip cookies went from pretty good to incredibly amazing and chewy with just this one little trick. Karo® Corn Syrup literally makes the best, chewiest cookies! I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, I mean Karo® Corn Syrup is the leading corn syrup brand with over 100 years of quality and trust over multiple generations. In fact my grandma used to use this to sweeten our waffles for breakfast on a Sunday morning.
Ingredients just come together with Karo® Corn Syrup to create the most delicious recipes, kind of like the way that people come together to create joyful traditions. Don’t you agree? Recipes are simply better when made with Karo® Corn Syrup! So, whatever it is you’re baking or making, it all comes together with Karo® Corn Syrup!
Now you know my secret ingredient for these amazing chewy cookies, so let’s get to baking!
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
