‘Tis the season for all things pumpkin and chocolate chip so I couldn’t help but make a NEW Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie!
These cookies are soft and chewy, bursting with chocolate chips, have just the right amount of spice and are sooooo yummy!
We literally can’t get enough to them and I am certain they will become a favorite of yours too!
And it is a suuuuper easy recipe!
These cookies are made with 12 real, whole food ingredients: Butter or dairy-free butter, brown sugar, cane sugar, canned pure pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, Gluten-Free all purpose flour (we love GF Jules – Amazon affiliate link), baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg and chocolate chips (we used semi-sweet but you could use dark chocolate or Enjoy Life Foods Mini Chips (Amazon affiliate link) if you’re looking for a vegan and allergy friendly option.
And the recipe comes together in 10 minutes or less.
It couldn’t be easier.
You cream the butters and sugar, add in the pumpkin and vanilla, then add in the dry ingredients and the chips.
Two tips: First, the butter needs to be softened (room temp or even softer) so remember to take a stick out of the fridge ahead of time.
Second, I always like to mix the flour and other dry ingredients (baking soda, salt and spices) in a separate bowl with a pastry cutter. I find it combines them really well and helps with the cookie texture.
Finally, it is a really fun recipe because the batter is a great texture so that you can drop it by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet which will yield smaller, chunkier cookies.
Of you can press the cookies down with your hands or the back of a spoon and have bigger flatter cookies. These are 3-4 inch cookies.
And since the recipes is packed with chocolate chips so no need to top with extra unless you want too!
Either way you will have the most delicious cookies bursting with chocolate chips and a hint of pumpkin spice .
A perfect Fall Treat!
Hope you love it as much as we do!
