These Old Fashioned Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect for fall. But I’d like to eat them year round. Why not?
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
It’s pumpkin mania out there! I don’t know if I’ve ever had a fall where I felt like pumpkin was in such demand. I’ve mentioned before that my mom makes all things pumpkin when September rolls around.
I posted some pumpkin cookies on Instagram and mentioned that I was making them to share. Sharing pumpkin cookies was a tradition for our family every year growing up. Since I became a mom and bake a ton, I’ve now started doing the same thing.
These cookies are easy to make and taste great- they are the consistency of a muffin, light and fluffy. They have the right sugar and spice. It’s like taking a bite of fall. Mmmmmmm…….

These cookies sound delicious! I have still never put chocolate and pumpkin together, lol I guess it’s time to give it a try. :)

Just finished a batch and they ARE good! I did use coconut oil, 1/2 coconut sugar and 1/2 organic sugar. They’re a keeper Thanks for sharing.

Hi, Sweetie. I actually made these the other day and tweeked the recipe a bit and LOVED the results. I used 1 cube butter instead of 1 cup shortening, then used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown suger. Try it if you like. XO
I make a very similar cookie to these and they are so good… and then one day it hit me: try white chocolate chips! Have you ever tried these with white chocolate? So. Good.
