Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies :D

So, I fell victim to the fall fad of everything pumpkin...not because it is a fad, but because it is soooo good.  I decided pumpkin chocolate chip cookies were a safe and easy bet since I did not feel like doing a pie.  And I stuck relatively close to the recipe...imagine that :D


  • 1 can pumpkin pie filling (here I used pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. vegetable oil
  • 4 c. flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 sm. bag chocolate chips (depends on your want for chocolate in the cookies)
Mix ingredients in large bowl (yup, literally put everything in one bowl and stirred). Bake 10 minutes in 350 degree oven.

The "dough" was a little weird looking and smelled at tad funny until I added the cinnamon.

They were really cakey and yummy!
This recipe will make about 64 it might be more than you would typically make so adjust accordingly!  They have a nice texture in between cake and cookie, delicious and only about 100 calories per cookie :D
They were a huge hit at work.

What About You?  Do you like pumpkin flavored things particularly in the fall?  What is your favorite cookie flavor/texture?


  1. Wow, those look YUM! My mom used to do some delish pumpkin cookies that I loved. Other than that, I have to admit a weakness for pumpkin cheesecake.

    I had a pumpkin spice tea recently (I got on a mailing list somehow for tea samplers) that was quite tasty.

    Other than that... pumpkin rolls? Oh, and pumpkin bread! My cousin made a massive amount of pumpkin bread last year with fresh pumpkin that she roasted and pureed herself. To die for.

  2. Yummy. Nothing beats pumpkin-chocolatey goodness! I make a pumpkin chocolate chip muffin and pumpkin pancakes all the time even in the summer!
