Makes about 3 dozen cookies


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 cup canned 100% pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar

  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed

  • ½ cup vegetable or canola oil

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder

  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg

  • 1 tsp whole milk

  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. (Alternatively, you can line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.)

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg; set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin, sugars, oil, egg, and vanilla, and mix until well combined. Add the milk, and mix until well combined.

  4. Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and mix well until incorporated.

  5. Fold in the chocolate chips. (For fluffier cookies, allow the batter to sit on the counter for 15-20 minutes before scooping onto a cookie sheet.)

  6. Drop the cookie dough onto the prepared cookie sheets (about 1-1 ½ tablespoons per cookie). Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until light brown. Allow the cookies to cool on the pans slightly before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
