Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I never tire of pumpkin.  If you've followed my blog for any amount of time you know that I have posted several pumpkin recipes.  Back in 2010 I posted a pumpkin cookie which had cranberries in it and it was NOT made with butter.  Of the two recipes I like this one better.  Maybe because of the butter...maybe because of the dark chocolate chips that I used.  Regardless these are quite tasty. 

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (Taste of Home 2011)

48 servings Prep: 10 min; Bake: 15 min./batch + cooling


1 cup butter, softened

¾ cup sugar (I used splenda)

¾ cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour (I used 1 cup white & 1 cup whole wheat)

1 cup quick-cooking oats

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup canned pumpkin

1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)


In a bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda and cinnamon; stir into creamed mixture alternately with pumpkin. Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoonfuls (I used a medium cookie scoop) onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 4 dozen
