  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks) at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and pumpkin pie spice; set aside.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the egg, vanilla, and pumpkin and mix until combined, about 3 minutes. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are just beginning to brown around the edges. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.


Storing: Leftover chocolate chip cookies can be stored outside of the fridge for 3-4 days in an airtight container. 
Freezing: Cooked and cooled cookies can be wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in a freezer-safe bag or airtight container for 3-4 months. Thaw completely on the countertop before serving
