Pumpkin and chocolate go so well together in this vintage Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe!
One of my kids’ favorite fall treats is these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. It’s a tradition at my house to make these cookies when the weather starts to turn from summer to fall.
When the nights start to get cold, and there’s a crispness to the air, it’s time for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
You can make this recipe year round by using canned pumpkin. Just make sure that you buy plain canned pumpkin and don’t accidentally buy pumpkin pie filling instead. Trust me, I know from experience that they won’t be as good if pumpkin pie filling is used instead!
You can also use fresh pumpkin puree, if you’d like. Just substitute 2 cups of pumpkin puree for the canned pumpkin. Making your own pumpkin puree is easy, we’ve got easy directions to make it yourself!
