Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every year in the fall, I always try to find a good excuse to make these cookies.  They are like fluffy pumpkin pillows accented by mini semi sweet chocolate chips.  They are so soft and tender and are the perfect treat with a glass of milk on rainy fall days.  I use my medium sized cookie scoop and got 5 dozen. These cookies don't spread much so they will pretty much remain the same size as what you put on the cookie sheet.  You could certainly make smaller cookies with a smaller cookie scoop (or of course the old spoon method works just fine also:) )  If you don't enjoy chocolate chips {uh! huge gasp}... then you could make a thin icing glaze and drizzle over these cookies.  They are excellent that way also!

printable recipe

1/2 cup butter
3 cups sugar
15 oz can pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
6 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cloves
1 pkg mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line baking sheets with SILPATS or parchment paper. A greased cookie sheet works fine.  Cream butter and sugar until mixed well.  Add pumpkin and beat until ingredients are combined.  Add eggs and beat until combined.  Then add milk.  Mix in.  In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients with a whisk.  Add to wet ingredients.  Mix until all ingredients are combined.  Add chocolate chips.  Mix in. Place cookies on prepared cookie sheets.  I used the medium cookie scoop and baked them for 14 minutes.  They will brown nicely and they are fluffy.  If using a smaller cookie scoop, I would bake them between 8-10 minutes.


Happy Cooking!



  1. These look yummy. I'm always on the lookout for more pumpkin uses. ;)

  2. Oh! These look just like the ones in the grocery store that my husband loves so much.

    Where do you find the mini choc. chips?

  3. briarrose- Thanks so much! This is certainly a great pumpkin recipe! They don't last long around here :)

    Tyra- the recipe originally came from an elderly guy that worked for a grocery store near here. He retired and he shrunk down the cookie recipe so people could enjoy them at home. So it is probably pretty close to the ones you buy at the local grocery store bakery:)
    Mini chocolate chips used to be harder to find, but they are much more common now. Of course, I like Nestle brand. They have them here in Preston at the store... Walmart carries them and they are less expensive there also :)

  4. We love pumpkin and chocolate together...these looks delicious. I was given a recipe like this by a was from the 50's! I wonder if they are similar. I'll be blogging about them next week! And bookmarking your recipe too so I can give you a shot out as well.


Thanks for visiting! Your happy comments make my day!
