Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
My sis-in-law Alice always has the best treats! She makes an amazing lemon puff dessert (I need to share that recipe with you!) and tons of other good eats.
One time after visiting Oregon, she came home with a box of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. She told me to try one. I didn’t want to be rude, right? So I did! The moment I bit into that soft, chewy cookie chilled with big chunks of chocolate, I swooned!
“Good, right?” she says – “uh huh,” I mumbled with a mouth full of cookie!
There was only one problem….we could only get them in Oregon…in the fall!
Ok, well that obviously had to change!
Hence the development of this perfectly delicious, super easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe! Similar to my recipe for 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies, and 3 Ingredient Oatmeal Cookies this recipe is quick and easy!
It takes longer to preheat the oven than it does to mix the dough – gotta love that, right?
These are the BEST Pumpkin Cookies!

Yes, and it’s the BEST shortcut! I have baked 4 batches of these tasty cookies and I decided it’s high time I share the recipe with you! This makes a big batch of cookies – about 40, so it’s plenty to fill your cookie jar!
Can I use pumpkin pie filling instead of pumpkin puree?
No, make sure you purchase pumpkin puree. Pumpkin pie filling has lots of other spices and is runnier. Your cookies will not turn out!
Can I buy pumpkin puree?
Often times referred to as solid packed pumpkin or pumpkin puree, you’ll find it in the baking aisle. Just be sure to check the label. It should read “100% pure pumpkin.” If you would like to make your own Pumpkin Puree, check out this website for step-by-step directions.

Tips to make Pumpkin Spice Cookies
- No need to use a mixer, these cookies mix easily by hand.
- A small ice cream scoop portions the cookies. Uniform size will ensure they bake evenly.
- The dough will want to stick to the scoop. Keep a glass of water close by to dip the scoop in occasionally.
- Use a silicone baking sheet to keep the cookies from sticking.
- You can crowd the cookies on the baking sheet as they do not spread out, but puff up.
- Allow the cookies to sit on the cookie sheet for about five minutes before removing them. They will release more easily.
