Now some prefer eating these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies fresh and warm from the oven—but I know of one friend who insists they are best after they have cooled in the fridge. My advice? Try them both ways.

PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES INGREDIENTS

Food on a table, with Pumpkin and Cookie

You Will Need:

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 8 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of canned pumpkin

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

TEXTURE: If you want a chewier but still soft pumpkin cookie, try adding about a half cup of quick oats.

ADD INS: You might want to mix in chopped walnuts or pecans, too. And don’t forget the raisins. Or cranberries. Or chopped dates.

CHOCOLATE: Use white chocolate chunks instead of the chocolate chips for another taste treat. Or if you are really feeling wicked, use both.

SPICES: Adventure seekers will want to play with spices. Try one or more of these: pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, allspice.

HOW TO MAKE THIS PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES RECIPE

A plate of food on a table, with Pumpkin and Laser

STEP ONE: In a medium size bowl, combine sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set it aside.

STEP TWO: In a separate large bowl, mix the egg, vanilla, oil, and pumpkin. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.

STEP THREE: Fold in the chocolate chips.

STEP FOUR: Let the batter rest for about 20 minutes. Scoop heaping tablespoons of cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet. Use parchment paper for easiest clean-up.

STEP FIVE: Lightly wet the tips of your fingers to pat down the cookie batter, then carefully place 3-4 extra chocolate chips on the tops of the cookies before baking to make them look prettier.

Bake about ten minutes at 350 degrees; adjust depending on your oven’s calibration.

    Amazing soft cookies with a perfect fall flavor! I used the suggested half cup of oats and instead of chocolate chips, I pressed some caramel bits into the tops of the cookies before putting them in the oven and it was super tasty 🍁🎃🍁
