Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft and Cakey Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies loaded with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Thick, spiced and super easy to make! The perfect cookie for Fall!


My pumpkin obsession continues. This time with a chewy, pillowy, spiced pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. The pumpkin helps to make the cookies fluffy and cakey. Super soft on the inside and studded with chocolate chips. These cookies are super quick and easy to throw together.


To me pumpkin and chocolate make the perfect combination. The gooey melted chocolate chips go wonderfully in these spiced pumpkin cookies.


Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-5 days (if they last that long). They actually get super soft the longer they sit in an airtight container. You can always freeze the cookies for up to 3-4 months.


Soft, melt in your mouth and perfectly spiced. These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are hard to resist!
