Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (A Jackie Original)


We ended up with a bunch of sugar pumpkins from our garden this year. Such a marvelous 'problem'. For these, I just took the regular chocolate chip cookie recipe that I always use and just thought I'd turn it into a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. I experimented and tweaked. Turns out, it was a hit. And so, this recipe will now go into our rotation. Which means I post here so I don't forget it. :)  These are a bit lighter in color, as they were made from our own pumpkin can puree.  If you use store bought pumpkin puree, it will be darker (I think they add orange coloring?).

  1. I not only love the cookies, but the plate they are on! My friend makes pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, too, which are also terrific!
