Put these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies at the top of your fall baking list. They are soft and chewy but not cakey and they are the perfect balance of pumpkin spice and chocolate.
I’m making the most of pumpkin season which you can tell if you scroll back a few recipes – pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin chili, chocolate chip pumpkin bread and there may be a few more pumpkin recipes coming your way before this is over. Fall really is my favorite season. I’ve already turned on the furnace a time or two, mainly because I just like the smell of it on a cool morning. And I have broken out the sweaters and may have bought pumpkins at the store today!
Pumpkin and chocolate are a match made in heaven and these chocolate chip pumpkin cookies are the perfect way to celebrate fall.
I have found that a lot of pumpkins cookies are really cake like. I prefer my cookie to have the texture of a cookie and like them soft and chewy. Melting the butter in this recipe helps give you that chewier texture.
If you don’t like chocolate with your pumpkin, be sure and try my pumpkin cookies with maple frosting. I made them this week for the girls I teach at church and I came home with an empty plate!

Some of my favorite kitchen tools for making Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies:
PARCHMENT PAPER SHEETS – These precut sheets of parchment paper are a total time saver in the kitchen.
SHEET PAN – I have at least six of these in my kitchen. I use them everyday. The 13 x 18 size is perfect and I use them for everything!
COOKIE SCOOP – I have these in several different sizes but this is the one I use the most and is the perfect size for cookies.
