Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies


Fall is here and I’ve been doing a ton of fall baking, especially with pumpkin. I call this my pumpkin bak’n. I’ve made several pumpkin cakes and pumpkin bread, but no pumpkin cookies. While I was making this scrumptious chocolate chip pumpkin bread last week, I decided it was time to change that.

After finishing my chocolate chip pumpkin bread, I found this soft pumpkin spice cookie recipe in my Georgia National Fair Blue Ribbon Cookbook and new it was my next bake and blog post.


Pumpkin spice, spice baby so good, so good. Yes, these pumpkin spice cookies are so very good. The cinnamon, nutmeg combo in this pumpkin spice cookie recipe is so perfect. It is then enhanced even further by the addition of warm melty chocolate chips.

I was so proud of these pumpkin spice cookies with chocolate chips that I took them to several neighbors and the cookies all got 5 (out of 5) star reviews from my neighbors in the hood.

One more thing you’ll love about these pumpkin spice cookies is just how easy these are to whip up. I made them with just one bowl in 8 to 10 minutes. Within 30 minutes of starting my cookie baking, I was getting cookies out of the oven and sampling (well, maybe more like devouring).

Friends these autumn pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies are just a win, win. They’re easy to make and bake and the taste is just spectacular. I’m so glad I made these and will make them a part of my fall baking rotation.

This post from Betty Crocker gives 3 reasons why cookies flatten and how to prevent it.

  • Butter is to soft or melted – To prevent this, use room temperature butter cut into pieces.
  • Using to little flour – To prevent this, make sure you’re using the most accurate measuring method and the correct measuring tools.
