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!

The BEST Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe on We make these every fall and they are always a hit!

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!

Happy Baking!

Soft and chewy spiced pumpkin cookies dotted with chocolate chips! We make endless batches of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies during the fall months. They are always a hit!


3 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and spices. Set aside.

3. Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add the egg, vanilla, and pumpkin and mix until combined, about 3 minutes. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

  19. Lauren @ Climbing Grier Mountain — September 23, 2013 @ 12:12 pm

    Clearly I know what I’m making this afternoon! Holy pumpkin heaven!

  20. Jan — September 23, 2013 @ 12:25 pm

    I’m a wannabe baker so I have a question. Do you have to buy a whole pumpkin to make puree, and I do not have a blender, but have wee food chopper. What would you recommend. I am on my own so don’t like to over buy (if you know what I mean). Thanks, this looks delish. Too many choc chip recipes have lard in them, and I can’t eat that.

    • Two Peas replied: — September 23rd, 2013 @ 12:27 pm

      You can buy small pumpkins, but you can also buy canned pumpkin puree. I like Libby’s brand. It is easy!

  21. Cookbook Queen — September 23, 2013 @ 12:33 pm

    LOVING all the pumpkin recipes. These are gorgeous!!

  22. marla — September 23, 2013 @ 1:04 pm

    Perfect snack for the fall weather we are having!

  23. Laura — September 23, 2013 @ 1:16 pm

    Perfect fall cookies! Love pumpkin and chocolate together!!

  25. Christina — September 23, 2013 @ 3:08 pm

    These cookies are going on my to-bake list this Fall. I’ve got the pumpkin bug bad!

  26. ashley - Baker by Nature — September 23, 2013 @ 3:11 pm

    These cookies look amazing! Pumpkin + Chocolate in a cookie is just sure to be incredible.

  27. Ariela HvM — September 23, 2013 @ 3:27 pm

    Where does one buy plain pumpkin puree? Do regular grocery stores carry this item? If they don’t have it, can you just cook pumpkin and then mash it up? Thanks! I LOVE your website, and your Guacamole Bruschetta is to die for! :)

    • Two Peas replied: — September 23rd, 2013 @ 5:11 pm

      You can find pumpkin puree at every grocery store! Look for Libby’s brand. That is what we use!

  28. Olena@iFOODreal — September 23, 2013 @ 5:40 pm

    LOL. Funny how us, bloggers, get wrapped up in everyday cooking missing on posting basic recipes. I look at my blog once a week and every time am surprised what recipes I don’t have on there and though I did. LOL. Pumpkin definitely makes these cookies moist.

  29. Des — September 23, 2013 @ 5:42 pm

    I just love pumpkin and chocolate! And these pumpkin cookies look so moist and delicious. Like little pumpkin cakes!

  30. Angelyn @ Everyday Desserts — September 23, 2013 @ 6:26 pm

    These look fabulous!

  31. sharon — September 23, 2013 @ 6:45 pm

    Quick question, if I were to halve the recipe what should I use in place of half an egg?

  32. Laura (Tutti Dolci) — September 23, 2013 @ 7:41 pm

    Perfect fall cookie!

  33. Sommer@ASpicyPerspective — September 23, 2013 @ 9:33 pm

    Oh momma, that is the best looking cookie I’ve seen in weeks! GO PUMPKIN!

  34. Joanne — September 23, 2013 @ 9:49 pm

    These might just be the ultimate fall cookie!

  35. Sues — September 23, 2013 @ 9:59 pm
