This family recipe has been tried and tested hundreds of times, and makes the BEST Pumpkin Cookies. They are easily my favorite Fall cookie and better than you’d find at a bakery!
I’ve tried so many different recipes for pumpkin cookies, experimenting to find the perfect one, but none have even come close to being as amazing as my Mom’s recipe! When September rolled around these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies would become a Sunday night treat staple. They are fantastic! They’re big and fluffy with the perfect mix of pumpkin flavor and cinnamon spice.
One thing I really love about this recipe is how EASY it is. I can have a batch of these whipped together and ready to eat in 25 minutes.
How to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies:
- Mix sugar and oil. Add the sugar and oil to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
- Add wet ingredients. Add an egg, milk, canned pumpkin and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
- Mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, stir together the dry ingredients, and then add them to the pumpkin mixture, along with the chocolate chips and stir just until incorporated.
- Add to cookie sheet. The batter will be thick and sticky. Use a cookie scoop or a regular spoon to dollop a spoonful of dough onto the cookie sheet.
- Bake them at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.
