    To make pumpkin cookie batter:

    1. Combine the pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla and egg in a large bowl.

    To bake pumpkin cookies:

    1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop pumpkin cookie batter onto the parchment paper by the spoonful, about 2 inches apart. I like to add a few extra chocolate chips to the tops as well.
    2. Bake pumpkin chocolate chip cookies at 350°F for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean.

    Frequently asked questions about chocolate chip pumpkin cookies

    Can I use fresh pumpkin instead of canned? Sure! If using fresh pumpkin puree, I’d recommend draining some of the liquid out first with a paper towel. Fresh pumpkin tends to hold more water than canned pumpkin. So be prepared for moister cookies!

    Can I double the pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe? Definitely! If doubled, it’ll make about 4-6 dozen pumpkin cookies. Plus, you’ll be able to use up the whole can of pumpkin this way. :)

    Can I use a replacement for vegetable oil? Yes. I prefer vegetable oil, but others have tried apple sauce and coconut oil and have said they’ve turned out great!

    Can I refrigerate the dough overnight before baking? Sure. The texture changes a little bit, but they are still delicious!

    Can I freeze the chocolate chip pumpkin cookies? I haven’t frozen the dough myself, but others have and said the cookies turned out great! The frozen dough takes a little longer to bake, so I’d add on 3-5 more minutes when baking. You can also freeze the cookies once baked. Just store in an airtight container in the freezer.
