They also start off with brown butter, which really just takes anything to the next level. And the warm notes of brown butter pair perfectly with pumpkin.

Mixing the butter, sugar, egg yolk and pumpkin mixture takes a little time but you will see the batter change colors, becoming much lighter by the third time. I learned to do this from a Cooks Illustrated cookie recipe. I adore Cooks Illustrated and love reading their books, magazines and all the online information.

  3. In a seperate bowl mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and cornstarch.
  4. Slowly add flour mixture to the wet mixture, mixing just until combined. Fold in chocolate chunks. Place dough covered in fridge for 30 minutes to an hour.
