Known for his intense and physical play, Dave Schultz is the definition of a Broad Street Bully. Schultz earned the nickname “The Hammer” and was one of the only Flyers to have a fan club, known as the Schultz’s Army. Schultz’s popularity with the fans heightened as he recorded a novelty song “The Penalty Box”, which shot up to the top of the local charts. The sin bin was considered his second home as he still holds the NHL record for most penalty minutes in one season (472) and racked up well over 2000 in his entire career.
What’s a better way to celebrate a fan favorite Flyer than with an ‘orange & black’ cookie? These sinful pumpkin chocolate chip hammers are sure satisfy your sweet tooth with a punch. Autumn & the arrival of spiced treats are on their way so crack open a pumpkin beer & enjoy!
Dave “The Hammer” Schultz Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 3/4 (1.5 sticks) of butter
- 1/2 cup of pack brown sugar
- 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups of flower (+ more for work surface)
- 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger & pumpkin pie spice
- pinch of salt
- Chocolate chips
- Cream butter and brown sugar in a large bowl the stir in the pumpkin
- Add the egg yolk and vanilla… mix well!
- In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (flour, nutmeg,cinnamon, ginger, pumpkin pie spice & salt)
- Gradually add dry ingredients into your pumpkin ingredient bowl while mixing.
- *CHILL DOUGH FOR 30 MINUTES* (at least! This is very important!)
- Once chilled, work dough on a lightly floured surface to avoid sticking. Roll out dough into 1/8 of an inch and cut into your desired shapes. At this time you may add chocolate chips to your cookies. If adding them directly to the dough during mixing, it may be hard to cut them into shapes.
- Lay cookies on greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees.
- Once cookies are out of the over, add some chocolate chips to a double broiler to melt them in order to spread them onto the tips of the hammer cookies.
