Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is something about fall that just makes me crave pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies... you get the idea.

I whipped up a batch of these cookies this weekend to take to visit with my little cousins (and Kevin and Gaylene too, of course). They were gone in a number of minutes, so I think it's safe to say they were a hit.

They're super duper easy to make and create such a yummy cake-like cookie.
Here's the recipe via allrecipes.com:

Ingredients
* 1 cup canned pumpkin
* 1 cup white sugar
(I only used half a cup and they were still sweet and delish)
* 1/2 cup vegetable oil
(I read a good tip you could substitute this with applesauce instead, I might try this next time)
* 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
* 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
* 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions
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, chocolate chips and nuts.
3. Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm (I ended up baking them for closer to 13 - 15 minutes).

Mike and I had a great time hanging with the boys. Aren't they just the sweetest little faces? They are such good little guys with so much energy (I'm sure the sugar rush of the cookies had nothing to do with it ;)

  1. I love the way Alex looks so serious. These pictures made me want some of these cookies so I went out and bought the canned pumkin and made some. I used apples sauce instead of oil and they worked wonderful. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. That was Alex's "funny face". Usually he crosses his eyes but he was distracted by the camera!

    Glad to know they work with the applesauce - much healthier that way!

  4. Oh my goodness!! Those look delicious! I LOVE pumpkin chocolate chip cookies! I am going to have to give this recipe a shot.

    If you are ever interested in making a super easy version (though you'd have to use a box mix) 1 box of spice cake mix, 1 can of pumpkin, and 1 bag of dark chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. They are cake-like too and so yummy! I am usually anti-box, but sometimes I need a fast fix! ha ha

    I'd much prefer the real deal recipe like yours, though!! Cute photos too!! :)

  27. Two of my very favorite flavors in one cookie...NICE!

  28. mmm these look so yummy! I love all things pumpkin too but am finding it difficult to track down here in Ireland. I'm determined to not give up the search though...

  29. Mmmmm, the cookies look great!! No wonder they disappeared in a flash :-)

    Applesauce can replace oil in a lot of recipes, and it doesn't seem to effect the flavour of the final product.

  35. OMG! this looks soooo good. I need to have my mom read this, she loves to bake and I just love to eat. Hehehehe. What a perfect combination huh? Anyway, the past few days I have been craving for all things pumpkin, pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, and now I am craving for this Pumpkin chocolate Chip cookies.

  36. Oh wow these look amazing! I crave pumpkin as soon as fall rolls around, too.

  37. I can't believe how good those look. Germany and Austria may have some might-fine pastry treats, but cookie dough and chocolate-chip cookies -- with a pumpkin touch at that! -- well, that just doesn't happen over here.
    Beautiful pix, beautiful blog.
    Best,
    Michael
