It’s one of those peacemaker recipes that I love to bake!
But pumpkin season comes only once per year, so you can’t just make any pumpkin cookie recipe!
You need a recipe that’s packed full of pumpkin spices and weaves indulgent tiny pieces of chocolate throughout each super soft cookie.
That’s where this super soft, pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipes comes in!
Oh, and when you snag canned pumpkin for this recipe, be sure NOT to grab the pumpkin pie mix.
There’s a difference.
We only want freshly mixed pumpkin-lover spices going into these super-soft cookies!
Don’t be afraid to use your own baked pumpkin puree!
Just substitute the same amount with freshly pureed pumpkin!
Oh, and if you bake fresh pumpkin, you’ll have lots of pumpkin seeds you can roast! Check out this pumpkin seed recipe for a yummy snack!
(It’s my preference to use fresh pumpkin, but most busy moms use canned pumpkin. We made the recipe busy mom friendly!)
Super Soft Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
And as a mom of young kids, let me tell you a little secret.
I love it when I spy cookies on the dessert table at a holiday party!
That means no cutting a pie, cake or other dessert for my kids.
It’s a grab and go kind of deal.
Definitely a win for this mom who likes to be able to sit down, relax and enjoy her holiday dessert without having to cut one more piece of pie or try to make sure frosting isn’t spread on the hostess’s floor.
Do your friends of young kids a favor and bake cookies for every holiday party!
Now, why would a pumpkin pie fan want to indulge in a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie?
It’s called convenience.
Again, with a cookie you can grab n’ go.
No cutting, no extra dessert plate, no waiting in line.
So pumpkin pie fans who don’t want to deal with dessert table drama, can grab a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie and get all their pumpkin sweet desires fulfilled!
