Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies Recipe

As a fun alternative to pumpkin pie, I often make these easy drop cookies. The chocolate chips and harvest-fresh goodness make them special enough for a holiday dessert.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 15 min./batch YIELD:42 servings


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  • 1. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Add pumpkin, oil, eggs, milk and vanilla; beat on medium speed until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
  • 2. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 13-14 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Cool for 2 minutes; remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Yield: about 7 dozen.

"I like these cake-like cookies. I only gave it 4 stars because I wanted to bump up the flavor a bit. So, I used the spices they call for in a pumpkin pie. The recipe on the canned pumpkin. 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ginger, 1/4 tsp. cloves. That tasted perfect. Next time I might try using half white and half brown sugars, like I do in pumpkin pie."

"I only ever give 4 stars because there's always room for improvement. I lost my own recipe so looked up this one. I'm so happy it was as good if not better than my own. My girls loved it and they are the true test of pumpkin chip cookies, they ask me every year to make them."

"I agree with the other reviewer that there is not enough pumpkin flavor. Not sure what it needs more of -- spices? Butter vs oil? Nice texture though!"

"I thought this would be a good combination, but it didn't quite come out to my expectations. It doesn't have the pumpkin flavor I thought it would. Also I don't care for cake-like cookies and that is how they turned out. Great idea, but not quite there."

"These cookies are so soft and chewy it is hard to find a better cookie. I made two batches, one with white chocolate chips & walnuts (my husband doesn't care for chocolate) and the other batch with dried cranberries and pecans. Both were a huge hit with everyone who tried them."
