Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Time! It’s October, which means we can officially add pumpkin to just about anything and no longer feel weird about it! Ha. Am I the only one who makes pumpkin baked goods all year round? I hope not.

I made these cookies yesterday and decided to re-post it because it’s one of my favorites!  If you’ve never had pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, they’re more cake-like: light, fluffy and thicker than your typical cookie. I took 3 dozen to a family dinner yesterday and came home with…nothing! I swear my father-in-law hid any that were leftover. I like to double the recipe and keep some dough in the freezer for those times when you just need one and the in-laws ate all those you brought over.

If you don’t have canned pumpkin, use fresh! Even jack-o-lantern pumpkin puree works well in these cookies. You can read more about how to cook fresh pumpkins here.

How do you make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies?

After that, slowly mix in flour, vanilla extract, semisweet chocolate and chopped walnuts.  The dough should be very soft and sticky.

Using a cookie scoop, drop the dough on the greased cookie sheet.

Don’t bother making them look pretty- the cookies will puff up a bit and even out any rough edges.

If you don’t have a cookie scoop, go buy one now use two spoons. You might also want to stick the dough in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to make it easier to work with, however, it’s not really necessary.

baked pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

Bake the cookies for 11-13 minutes, depending on the size of your cookies. Less time is usually better. Pumpkin cookies are best when they are as soft as possible!

When the cookies are done they’ll still look soft, but they’ll be bigger and paler.

Let the cookies cool and enjoy!

What Pumpkin to use in Pumpkin Cookies

Make sure you use pure pack pumpkin (plain pumpkin puree) in this dessert recipe, and NOT pumpkin pie filling. It comes in a can and is labeled “pure pack pumpkin” or something similar.
