How do I know when the cookies are done baking?

One way to test for doneness is to observe the color of the edges and bottoms of the cookies; they should turn golden brown, indicating that the sugar has caramelized, and the center should be slightly pale.

Another method is to touch the center of a cookie with a finger lightly, and if it springs back, it is fully baked.

Alternatively, one can insert a toothpick into the center of a cookie, and if it comes out clean, the cookies are done.

However, it is crucial to take the cookies out of the oven before they develop a hard or crunchy texture, as they will continue to cook for a few minutes once they are removed from the oven.

How do I freeze baked cookies?

First and foremost, it’s essential to let the cookies cool completely before placing them in the freezer. This will help to prevent any excess moisture or condensation from forming, which can lead to freezer burn or diminishing flavors.

Once cooled, wrap each cookie individually in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, ensuring that they are tightly sealed to prevent any air from getting in.

From there, place the wrapped cookies in a freezer bag or container, and be sure to label them with the date so that you can keep track of how long they’ve been frozen.

When you’re ready to eat them, remove them from the freezer and let them thaw at room temperature before enjoying them.

Make a batch of this Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chunk Cookie Recipe! You'll love the taste!


  • ½ cup canned pumpkin puree
  • ¾ cup unsalted browned butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks

Topping Ingredient:

  • Sea Salt


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. You must put the pumpkin puree in a paper towel and squeeze out the excess liquid. This helps the cookies from becoming cakey in texture.
  3. Melt the butter over medium heat in a saucepan. Stir every minute until the butter has browned.
  4. Pour the browned butter into a mixing bowl and add the brown sugar. Whisk.
  5. Add the vanilla and egg yolks. Blend with a whisk. Add the pumpkin puree and mix.
  6. Add the pumpkin pie spice, flour, baking soda, and salt. Use a mixer to mix together to form the cookie dough.
  7. Fold in the chocolate chunks, but leave out a few to add to the tops of the cookies.
  8. Make cookie dough balls using a 1-2 inch scooper. Place them on the baking sheet. Cover them with plastic and put the sheet in the fridge for 30 minutes. (leave about 2 inches between each cookie dough ball)
  9. Add a few chocolate chunks to the top of each ball of dough.
  10. Put the cookies in the oven and bake for 12-13 minutes or until the cookie edges are browned slightly.
  11. Let the cookies cool for 10 minutes, then move to a cooling rack.
  12. Let them cool all the way, and serve!
