Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s fall ya’ll. And that means we have officially stocked out house with all things pumpkin. I have been counting down to this day. My husband is super strict about few things in our home. It really only falls down to two things:

  1. Christmas decorations WILL NOT go up before Thanksgiving has ended.
  2. Pumpkin waits for fall.

So here it is. The first pumpkin recipe of the season, and one of our favorites!

How to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies:

  • Flour
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Cinnamon
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Nutmeg
  • Pumpkin Puree
  • Sugar
  • Oil
  • Egg
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate Chips

The difference between pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie filling:

When shopping for ingredients be mindful of which can of pumpkin you add to your cart. Most grocery stores keep canned pumpkin in the baking aisle. You will see two different varieties; Pumpkin Puree and Pumpkin Pie Filling. So, what exactly is the difference between the two?

Pumpkin Puree: This is pumpkin that has been cooked and mashed. No added ingredients.

Pumpkin Pie Filling: This is pumpkin puree that has been sweetened and contains added spices.

For baking purposes, I always use pumpkin puree.

How long do pumpkin cookies last?

This is a GREAT question, and one I have gotten frequently. How long do pumpkin cookies really last? The answer will vary depending on how you store them, but ideally you should finish them within 1 week.

These are more of a cake like textured cookie, so we like to store them in an air tight container with wax paper between each cookie layer. I also opt for putting them in the refrigerator for a little longer freshness.
