Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s pumpkin season, and that makes me extremely happy. I love everything pumpkin! These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft and chewy with loads of chocolate chips…which is how I like my cookies to be. The pumpkin flavor shines through beautifully in the cookies, and they are not overly sweet.

The original recipe is from the “Pioneer Woman,” with minor changes of mine. Every fall I cannot wait to make these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.


Ingredients Overview

All-purpose flour: Provides the structure needed in these cookies. I like to use unbleached all-purpose flour.

Pumpkin pie spice: Homemade or store-bought.

Butter: Unsalted butter.  

Canned pumpkin puree: Use canned pumpkin, not fresh, for the best consistency. Don’t use canned “pumpkin pie filling”; it has added sweeteners and spices.

Chocolate chips: You can also use milk chocolate or dark chocolate if you prefer.

How To Make Pumpkin Spice? 

It truly couldn’t be simpler to make pumpkin spice at home! Use this pumpkin pie spice to flavor your favorite fall pies, muffins, cakes, cookies, and bread.


4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoons nutmeg

Mix all ingredients. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months.

Can Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies Be Frozen?

Yes, these cookies freeze well for up to 2 months in an airtight container.
