But pumpkin season comes only once per year, so you can’t just make any pumpkin cookie recipe!

No ma’am.

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!)
