Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are a a fun spin on the classic favorite! Take the average chocolate chip cookie and toss in some canned pumpkin for a fabulous fall dessert recipe!

My Favorite Fall Dessert Recipe

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.

Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yep, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies… Do it.

How to Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies:

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

Is it possible to make these into cookie dunkers?

Persnickety

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.

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

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?!

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.

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!

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!

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.

I made these yesterday and my friends and I loved them. They turned out perfectly! I truly love your blog and especially love the fact that I can count on all of your recipes to be delicious. I’m going to Target tonight to find the M&M’s!

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!

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?

I am putting this on my weekend list

Pumpkin spice M&M’s? How have I not seen those?!

Melinda

Looks and sounds delicious! Question – what do you do with the left over pumpkin?

Luv What You Do

I have seen pumpkin chocolate chip cookies all over the blog world. hooray for pumpkin! I think they’d be great with the pumpkin spice M&m’s too!

marcie

I so love pumpkin, especially with chocolate! Your cookies look perfectly soft and crispy around the edges.

Joanne

I am all about some chocolate chip cookie love, especially if there is pumpkin in the mix!

Hey! Love this recipe and the idea of using M&Ms that are pumpkin flavored-amazing! I was just wondering about how many cookies this recipe makes? Thanks!!

Can’t wait to give these a try!

It’s never too early to open up a can of pumpkin! These cookies look so moist and delicious! Great school snack too!

This hear wave has me wishing for Fall, too!

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.

Monica

I can’t way to try this!!!!

Cookbook Queen

I have GOT to start busting out the pumpkin — these look so great!!

Jamie @lifelovelemons

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