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


  • Combine sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a medium-sized bowl, and mix.
  • In a separate large bowl, add all wet ingredients: egg, vanilla, pumpkin, and oil. Mix until well combined.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Let batter set for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Scoop heaping tablespoons of cookie dough onto a greased baking sheet.
  • 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 for 10 minutes (time may vary with different ovens).
  • Remove from the oven and let cool on a cooling rack.


  • Watch out when you are at the grocery store that you buy pure pumpkin puree and not canned pumpkin pie filling.
  • Make sure not to overmix the dough or your cookies will flatten out too much.
  • Use a layer of parchment paper for easier clean-up instead of just greasing the pan.
  • Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to keep a close eye on your cookies as the suggested baking time approaches.
  • Make sure not to underbake your cookies or they will come out raw in the middle. Overbaking will result in cookies that are not soft.
