Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, completely softened
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (Trader Joe’s is my favorite brand of chips!)
  1. Combine butter, brown sugar and sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy.
  2. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed.
  3. Reduce speed to low; add flour, spices, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat, scraping down the sides of the bowl often, until well mixed.
  4. Gently stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Chill dough for one hour in the refrigerator. Dough can be frozen at this point if you would like to prepare in advance.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop cookie dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons each. Flatten slightly and place on foil-lined cookie sheets.
  7. Bake for 11 to 12 minutes.
