Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies-everyone’s favorite fall cookie! These spiced pumpkin cookies are soft, chewy, and dotted with chocolate chips!
I had pumpkin leftover from our Brown Butter Pumpkin Waffles and wasn’t about to let it go to waste. I love it when ingredients force you to make something, especially when cookies are involved. I pulled up our website to get our Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and was shocked that I didn’t find it. We’ve been blogging for about 5 years and I haven’t shared my favorite Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I am so sorry! Shame on me! I get wrapped up in creating new cookie recipes that sometimes I forget the classics. Well, this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is a classic and you all need to add it to your recipe box…or wherever you keep your recipes these days!
Pumpkin and chocolate are two of my favorite combinations. I can eat a whole loaf of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread by myself. Good thing our recipe makes three loaves. I eat one and share the other two loaves:) Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies don’t stand a chance against me either. I can’t stop eating them after I start! They are one of my favorite fall cookies!
The spiced pumpkin cookies are soft, chewy, and dotted with sweet chocolate chips! I like to use semi-sweet chocolate chips, but if you are a milk chocolate fan it won’t hurt my feelings if you invite them to the party instead. Do what you gotta do!
Fall isn’t fall without Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, so get baking! We love these cookies and I think you and everyone you share them with will too! That is, IF you decide to share, I won’t judge you if you eat them all by yourself. It’s ok to just love yourself once in awhile and hog all of the cookies!
