Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1½ tsp baking powder

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats; set aside.

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

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, sugars, oil, egg, and vanilla until well combined.

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

  5. Fold in the chocolate chips. Place the cookie dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill.
