Fluffy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Grab an ice cold class of milk for this one! The chocolate chip cookie is probably America's all time favorite cookie. When I think of the desserts our country is known for this classic cookie definitely tops the list. Elevate this perfect treat to another level with another known favorite - pumpkin! Together, they combine to make the perfect cookie recipe for a cool, fall evening.

The best cookies are always planned ahead of time. To cream the butter and sugar to perfection the stick should be good and soft. 

Feel free to preheat your oven to 350 degrees as you mix up your cookie dough. Getting your cookies ready to bake is not a long process. By the time your oven is ready to go, your dough should be ready as well. 

For canned pumpkin you will most likely find "pure pumpkin" and "pumpkin pie filling". Make sure you are simply getting the pure pumpkin and not the pie filling. I really like the taste of the pure pumpkin - plus I get to add my own spices to get the exact flavor I want. 

If you don't want to bake the cookies right away, you can absolutely cover the dough with plastic wrap, place it in the fridge, and bake them later. 

If your kids are like mine, they love to have the cookie jar filled. Put a smile on everyone's face by filling your cookie jar with these Fluffy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies! 

Cookie Jar Tip: Make sure the cookies have cooled completely before you store them. I always throw a slice of bread in my cookie jar - which keeps my cookies soft and chewy.

  1. These sound amazing! My family just loves pumpkin flavored anything and they will just love these.

  2. These look really good! I would have to make some myself!

  3. These look fabulous! I love fluffy cookies and these look like the perfect amount of "fluff". I used a new recipe for thanksgiving and they were almost too fluffy, like muffin tops or something. Ill try this one next :)

  4. These look so good. We always have leftover pumpkin too, and we still crave it until the snow starts melting, so I think I just might make some before too long. Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Oh my family would absolutely love these! They look sooooo yummy!

  6. i want to try this with sweet potatos
