Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
I was walking through Trader Joe’s, getting fruits & veggies to make baby food, when I saw the canned pumpkin.
Like everything at Trader Joe’s, the packaging made me want to buy it. So I did. (it doesn’t take much) I was also swayed by the Honeycrisp Apple Cider, which is awesome.
I got home and wasn’t sure what I wanted to make, given my new found pumpkin love, but I decided I hadn’t had cookies in quite awhile and needed some.
Below is a list of the ingredients you’ll need to gather to make this recipe. Scroll all the way down for the full recipe card.

She’s a champ at night (knock on wood) so I won’t complain, but trying to cook/bake during the day is like a Quickfire Challenge (any Top Chef fans?). I got about halfway through these when she woke up – thanks to a delay with my hand mixer crapping out.
They’re super moist, pillowy, cake-like cookies that have a mild pumpkin flavor. And you can make them really quickly 🙂
HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
- STEP ONE: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat & set aside.
- STEP TWO: In a large bowl, beat the softened butter and then add the sugars and beat until light & fluffy.
- STEP THREE: Add in the eggs, one at a time mixing in between, then add the vanilla and pumpkin. Mix well.
- STEP FOUR: In another large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients and then add, in thirds, to the pumpkin mixture and mix. Fold in the chocolate chips.
- STEP FIVE: Chill the dough for at least an hour so it can firm up. Once chilled, scoop the dough onto your prepared baking sheet and bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until edges start to brown. Remove from the oven, let rest for a few minutes, and then remove and enjoy!
