12 Weeks of Christmas Treats: "Pleasing Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies"

I am happy to be participating in Meal Planning Magic's "12 Weeks of Christmas Treats" blog hop. This week, I am sharing my recipe for a fun fall pumpkin cookie that has The Southern Fried Husband's official seal of approval.

"Pleasing Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies"
1/2 stick butter, softened

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 large egg

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper. In large bowl, add butter and brown sugar. Beat together until creamy. Mix in pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract until well blended. In separate bowl, combine dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and cloves. Mix well. Slowly add the dry mixture into the batter in three parts until all of dry mixture has been added. Gently stir in chocolate chips only long enough to blend in mixture. Scoop the cookie dough by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cookies are browned around the edges. Remove cookie sheet from oven and let cool for 2 minutes before removing with a spatula onto cooling surface. Enjoy!


  1. Ive had so many pumpkin flavored foods this month, but I haven't had pumpkin cookies yet!! I think I need to try this recipe! I have that butterfly plate and the matching china set! It's one of my favorite gifts from our wedding! :)

  2. I'm loving pumpkin right now. I especially love pumpkin and chocolate together. These look great!

  3. Yum! I made a similar cookie to this a few years ago and this just reminded me how good pumpkin and chocolate are together! Great pick!

  4. Your cookies look delicious. I love pumpkin flavored things.
