Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are a a fun spin on the classic favorite!

Yep, I’m going there.

It’s barely September and I’m talking pumpkin.

I do apologize…but I just can’t help it.

 

You see, I never really liked pumpkin until last year…

I still can’t be bothered with pumpkin pie or anything that hard core…but pumpkin flavored stuff?  I’m all over that.

 

And these cookies are the best of both.

There is pumpkin in them (and pumpkin pie spice), but they are still most definitely chocolate chip cookies.

Which is a major win all around.

 

Oh, and can I just say that I added some of these new super yummy Pumpkin Spice M&Ms to some of my cookies…just for experiment sake.. and they were perfect!

It’s a really fun adaptation if you can find them. I think they are sold exclusively at Target.

 

Yep, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies… Do it.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies | www.cookiesandcups.com Anyhow, let’s get down to details.

I started with 3/4 cup of pumpkin…

And beat that with some butter…IMG_4045I added a bit of pumpkin pie spice to amp up the pumpkin-ness.

IMG_4049And of course chocolate chips…

IMG_4051These cookies don’t require any dough chilling, which is always a bonus!  The pumpkin helps keep them a little “taller”.

Bake them until they are golden around the edges and the tops are just set…Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies | www.cookiesandcups.com

They are so yummy for this time of year. Such a fun spin on your usual chocolate chip cookie!Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies | www.cookiesandcups.com

There’s only one Target in my town and it’s about 45 minutes away. It’s a blessing and a curse. I miss out on a lot of Target awesomeness, but it probably saves me a ton of money. These cookies look great. I’m crazy for pumpkin. Keep it comin’.

It’s barely Sept and I feel like sooooo late already with not posting pumpkin (later this week though) b/c some ppl started in mid August!

Your cookies look so good. I made some pumpkin choc chip cookies last year and wish I could try those pumpkin M&Ms. And I was JUST at Target today, too. Darn! Pinned!

I’m not quite ready for most pumpkin things yet since it’s still in the 90s here, but these seem like something I could definitely get on board with! I need to find those M&Ms too!

I have to admit, I’m skeptical of the pumpkin/chocolate combination, but these might warrant a try! The look fab!

Store airtight for up to 3 days -yeah, right!!! They’ll be gone before then!!!!!!!! BTW, we raise butternut squash, and I use that in place of pumpkin in all my pumpkin recipes. No one knows the difference, either.

I made these before but using the easy spice cake mix and pumpkin and chips! Such a quick and yummy treat! Wondering if youve tried both and if you can taste any difference between this way here and the easy way?

Just made up my second batch of these cookies! I love the texture that the pumpkin gives the cookies. My first batch tasted good, even though I accidentally used cinnamon sugar instead of pie spice (long story short – unmarked containers in my pantry). This batch I’ve actually used the right ingredients and if the dough is any indication, they’ll be even better!

These call for a lot of butter — yikes. Am making them anyway since pumpkin + chocolate is always a favorite and these get rave reviews. I say stick with good old dark chocolate chips instead of M&M’s, as they look prettier, are better for you, and darker chocolate tastes better with the pumpkin, IMHO.

Love Pumpkin, can’t wait to try these. Have a couple questions though…1) Can you freeze the left over pumpkin from the can? and 2) do you add the m&m’s before or after baking? (I’ve never baked with them before)
Thanks for the fun recipes!

It’s Monday. It was raining and my to-do list was oh-so-very long. 🙁 So instead, I decided to make pumpkin chocolate cookies out of the Nestle Halloween morsels I just bought. 🙂 I looked at LOTS of recipes and chose this one and am so glad I did! They are absolutely delicious!!! Super easy, quick, and I know I will be at hero status when the kids come home from school to these fresh baked yummy treats! This one’s a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

This is now my families all time favorite cookie recipe. Everyone loves them. I can’t seem to make enough. They turn out perfect every time! Have used dark, milk and white chocolate chips and they are all great combos with the recipe. Might add in pecans or walnuts in my next batch. They are an easy go to baked gift for the holidays! Thanks so much.

I just have to say that I had some extra pumpkin puree and was looking for a recipe to use up the rest of it, when I rememebered this post. I just took these out of the over & oh my word! These are YUMMY!! I’ve tried many of your recipes & have never been disappointed – I can even make the argument that these are healthy. Pumpkin’s healthy, right?!

Did you use pumpkin puree or pumpkin pie filling? Looks yummy.

A great recipe I can’t wait to try out. It looks incredible. I love Pumpkin and those adventurous enough to use it! I wish more would.

I came up with my own version of a Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cooks. While different from your own, I think mine is a unique take on the dish. I’m new to the Food Blog scene and would love some feedback from a pro like you. Check out my recipe if have time.
