How To Make The Best Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
To make pumpkin cookies, begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
Then in a large mixing bowl, using either a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.
Next, add in the eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla extract and mix it all together well.
Once that is done, add in the salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour, then continue to combine everything together.
Now that the dough is made, fold in the chocolate chips gently.
Using either a cookie scoop or spoon, drop large tablespoonfuls of cookie dough onto the cookie sheet.
Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 11-13 minutes.
Once the pumpkin cookies are done baking, let them rest on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then move them to a wire rack to finish cooling off.
When they are cooled off (if you can wait that long) then they are ready to eat!
These are great to have available for this pumpkin cookie recipe:
- Large mixing bowl
- Hand or stand mixer (THIS is a great mixer)
- Wooden spoon
- Cookie scoop (one of THESE will work great!)
- Cookie sheet
- Wire cooling rack

Do Pumpkin Cookies Need To Be Refrigerated?
While these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies do not NEED to be stored in the refrigerator, they will stay fresher longer if you do.
Store them in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge or freezer to keep them fresh the longest. That is if you think they will last that long. 😉
