Chewy Pumpkin Chip Chocolate Cookies

Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Cookies are the perfect fall treat- warm, spicy, chocolatey, and full of delicious pumpkin flavor. These are chewy, not (gasp) cakey. Enjoy them hot out of the oven or rolling around in a pile of leaves!

  • 1 ⅔ cups of all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 stick (½ cup) of butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 ¼ cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips or roughly chopped bar chocolate (I used chopped dark chocolate - bars of Ritter 50% cocoa)


  • Whisk together the flour, salt, cornstarch, pumpkin pie spice and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl, beat the melted butter and sugar together until they are evenly combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and stir until mixed. Stir in pumpkin puree until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture and mix until a dough forms. Add chocolate and stir just until combined.
  • Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Place heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough evenly on a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown at the edges, about 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool at room temperature and serve.
