RECIPE: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

My friend Jodi made these last year and they were delicious!  I used an ice cream scoop to make them the same size and to give them a smooth rounded top.  They kept their shape beautifully!  The inside were soft and pumpkin-y (if that's a real word!).  

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (adapted from allrecipes)
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
15 oz can pumpkin puree (about 2 cups)
4 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray cookies sheets with nonstick cooking spray.  Cream butter and sugar together until smooth.  Add eggs one at a time and beat well.  Add vanilla and pumpkin until well blended.  Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, spices;  then stir into the pumpkin mixture.  Mix in the chocolate chips.  Scoop onto cookie sheets and bake 12-15 minutes until edges are golden and puffed.   

They are so yummy!

Looks yummy! I may try these but decrease the butter amount. 1 cup seems like a lot with the pumpkin and choc chips in them. Thanks for sharing this!

These cookies are so puffy. They look beautiful. Add the chocolate chips and you have it sold. That is a great idea. Thanks for doing it and linking to MMM.

Yum! These sound really tasty. I'm not quite ready for fall baking. It's still too warm here, but I need to store away this recipe idea for later. :)

Wow, these look great. We used to have a cafe here (gone now) that served beautiful pumpkin and chocolate muffins that I loved - I need to try making these as a good substitute.
