These soft Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies have just the right amount of spice. A perfect fall cookie recipe!

Who else is excited about pumpkin season? One of my very favorite thing about fall is all of the yummy pumpkin flavors. I have a fantastic recipe for White Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies. They are filled with pecans and Craisins, and they are oh so tasty!

Today I’m sharing another favorite pumpkin recipe . . . Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. I think every baker needs to have a basic recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. This one starts with oil instead of butter, and that keeps them extra soft. I think they taste even better the next day!

MY OTHER RECIPES

If you’ve never made pumpkin cookies before, the dough is not like regular chocolate chip cookie dough. It is much more sticky, almost like a batter. That’s what makes the cookies so soft and fluffy!

I like to use a cookie scoop to put this cookie dough on the cookie sheets. It is so handy! But if you don’t have one, you can use two spoons.

TIP: The dough will spread more than traditional cookies, so make sure you leave plenty of space between them.

I like to set aside a few chocolate chips to put on top of the cookies after I scoop them. It gives them that extra pretty bakery look. Yum!

    These cookies are fabulous! I substituted 1/2 the oil with applesauce, decreased white sugar by 1/4 cup, added about 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts. I also used feather weight baking powder because I am on a low sodium diet. Love them!!
