Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a fabulous recipe for all of you, one of my all time favorite cookies – pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

This recipe comes from an old cook book from my great grandmother’s church.

butter 'n love recipes

It’s a really simple recipe and the cookies are soft, moist, and delicious!  Everyone I’ve ever made these for falls in love with them.


Gather all of the ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugar, butter, vanilla, egg, cinnamon, pumpkin (fresh cooked or canned), and chocolate chips.  The recipe calls for nuts but I just add more chocolate chips because more chocolate makes everything better!

I don’t have pictures of the normal cream butter and sugar, sift dry ingredients because I got impatient and wanted to eat the cookie dough… oops

After you’ve mixed everything up drop them on a cookie sheet (the dough isn’t as thick as normal cookie dough, and it’s pretty sticky) , pop ’em in the oven, and wait about 10 minutes.
