Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

If you missed my recent pumpkin recipe round up be sure and check out all the mouth-watering pumpkin recipes here. Since that post, I have made these most delicious and moist pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

I was a little nervous about my kids not wanting to eat them, but they actually really enjoyed them, as did my husband who loves his chocolate chip cookies.

Since pumpkin is so good for you, I wonder if next time I decide to add some oatmeal as well to make this a semi-healthy cookie recipe. Hey use dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet and you have really pushed the healthy cookie bar up!!

Doesn’t this color of orange just scream fall time?


I used Ghiradelli Brand Semi-sweet chips. I think they taste closer to dark chocolate.
