The fall season is a great time for trying out all of my favorite pumpkin recipes! These cookies are chewy and delicious and the chocolate chips are just sweet enough to satisfy any chocolate craving you may have. I absolutely love pumpkin pie, so I thought it would be great to have some sort of pumpkin in cookie form. The result was absolutely brilliant! You can used canned pumpkin for the recipe of course, but if you are a real go-getter and are pureeing your pumpkin shavings from carving your jack o’lanterns then I’m sure you can also use homemade pureed pumpkin made in a food processer. The canned pumpkin tastes just as good and is a whole lot easier and less messy. I made these on the same weekend that we went out to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins, however it was a couple weeks before we had carved them and I needed something to satisfy my pumpkin craving in the meantime. These chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are so soft and delicious!
Funny story, we had to go to two different stores to find the canned pumpkin, because the first one was sold out! I guess a lot of people in Brooklyn are baking pumpkin goodies during the month of October, not surprising!
I had thought about making this recipe with raisins or nuts as well, so if you like an extra crunch or texture to your cookies, I’m sure adding nuts or raisins could also be a delicious choice.
Prior to making these I had never really thought about combining chocolate and pumpkin together, but these chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are a satisfying addition to any fall festival or office party.
