Pumpkin Chocolate Chips Cookies...

The mornings are starting to be crisp and we're pulling out our scarves and hoodies from the back of the closet.

Don'tcha just love fall?

I particularly love the scents and tastes of fall.

Sipping on a Pumpkin Spice Latte,

munching a (few) Gingerbread cookies,

smelling my Harvest Yankee Candle,

brewing up a batch of apple cider,

and that crisp morning smell promising frosty mornings arriving soon.

Are you in a fall mood yet?


OK, for all of you still mourning the loss of Summer, here is my never-fail fall mood inducer:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
  2. Add vanilla and chocolate chips and lightly stir until combined.
  3. Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown.
  4. Eat liberally with extra large iced glass of milk.

There, that should help you get your AUTUMN on...

  1. I may have to start singing "Wind Beneath My Wings" to you for posting this recipe. I LOVE all things pumpkin.

  2. Do you know if this recipe can have substitutions made to it so it would be friendly for kiddos who are allergic to eggs? I know that some cookies just don't work when you use the substitute.

  3. I have made a recipe very similar to this for a couple of years now. They are so soft and cakey. Yum yum! Thanks for sharing your version. Love them! :D

  4. Perfect timing! I just made pumpkin muffins (while burning my pumpkin spice candle) and I have an extra cup or so of pumpkin that I wasn't sure what to do with. Can't wait to try these - thanks!

  5. Autumn is such a delicious time of year.

  6. Pumpkin choc. chip cookies are probably one of my favorite fall treats EVER!! But I may try your recipe this year JUST to switch things up a bit ;) They ARE mighty tasty (Becca did give me a sample on her last visit ;)

  7. Delicious! Thank you so much for sharing them with me. And you are right- they are even better warmed up in the microwave. Yum. :)

  8. I made a batch of these and brought about 2 dozen in to work - half of them were gone by 9am, so apparently the people I work with aren't opposed to cookies for breakfast :) I just got a request for the recipe too. Thanks for posting it!


  9. Hey! I just passed by via Pinterest and I really like this recipe!
    Thanks for sharing :)
