Today I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite pumpkin recipes… 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, which keeps them extra soft – even for multiple days. To be honest, I think these cookies actually taste even better the day after baking them!

If you’ve never made pumpkin cookies before, you should be aware that 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! Without fail, these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies always turn out thick and chewy, almost more like a cake than a cookie.

And When it comes to pumpkin cookies, I prefer them soft and fluffy like this – oh yeah, and easy! πŸ˜‰

How to Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies? Here are some tips and points that might help…

I usually use milk chocolate chips in my pumpkin cookies rather than semi-sweet. I think the flavor of milk chocolate pairs so well with pumpkin. But some people even prefer dark chocolate with pumpkin! It might be worth trying all three variations to see which flavor you like best. Having said that, once you have picked your chips, just follow these simple steps to make these fluffy pumpkin cookies.

  1. Whisk together the oils and sugars, then add the egg, pumpkin, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl until they’re well blended.
  3. Add dry mix to the wet ingredients and stir gently until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Use a cookie scoop or two spoons to drop dough onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350Β° for 10-12 minutes or tillΒ  they are set in the middle. After a couple minutes, remove to cooling racks to cool.

Now just try not to eat a dozen in one sitting. πŸ˜‰

Pumpkin Cookie Tips

  • The dough will spread more than traditional cookies, so make sure you leave plenty of space between them!
  • We also 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! πŸ˜‰
  • To store these cookies, place in an airtight container or Ziploc bag for 2-3 days in a cool spot (or in the fridge for up to a week).
  • To freeze pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, wrap in plastic wrap and place in a freezer safe Ziploc bag and store for up to 2 months in the freezer.

This is one recipe that we are constantly making in my house during the fall, because they always disappear so quickly whenever I make them. πŸ˜‰ I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does!

  1. 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!!

  2. I made this for thanksgiving and it was a big hit! Very rich and DECADENT! I didn’t use as much chocolate chips because they were starting to fall out, but still overall an A+
