Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies - The perfect fall cookie recipe! Soft and chewy pumpkin cookies filled with chocolate chips.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Additional Time 30 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes


  • 8 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Next, add the pumpkin puree, egg, and vanilla. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, and pumpkin pie spice and mix them in gently - just until no large lumps of flour remain.
  4. Next, add in the chocolate chips and fold them into the cookie dough.
  5. Transfer the dough to the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
  6. While the dough chills, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.
  7. Once the dough has chilled, scoop 2 tablespoon sized balls onto the baking sheets, making sure to place them at least 2" apart - these cookies will spread.
  8. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the cookies are set around the edges and golden brown on the bottom.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan - they will set as they cool.
  10. Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
