Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin and chocolate go so well together, in this vintage Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe!

When Dan and I first got married, I came across an OLD church cookbook that was from when Dan was in Sunday School as a kid. As I flipped through the recipes, I saw one that his mom had submitted for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. Now, being a new daughter-in-law, I thought maybe I’d score some brownie points by making my mother-in-law’s recipe to share at the next family gathering.

When I showed up with the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, my mother-in-law told me the cookies were good, and asked where I got the recipe, so I told her. The hilarious part is that she didn’t remember submitting the recipe, or even that she’d ever made them!

Now that I have kids, I find this is my go-to recipe for quick, easy cookies that have some vitamins and fiber in them, so they’re at least slightly redemptive!

Recipe Notes

I always think that these look like they will spread out while cooking, but they bake the exact size and shape that you drop them.
