pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

Sounds weird, but really quite different and good!! I made them for two Thanksgiving dinners and they were a hit.  

Thanks to MrsT and MrsD for posting this one!

My only comment - they don't really change color in the oven, so keep a good eye on them! When firm, they're done! 

1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. milk
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in to the pumpkin mixture. Add flour mixture and mix well. Add vanilla, and stir until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm. Move to wire rack to cool completely.


  1. WOW! This is weird! I just clicked on your blog based on the title (so cute!) from Steady Happy who I got to by reading her birth announcement on So Your EnGAYged which I got to from LOL. It's been a long trip and I find chocolate chip pumpkin cookies at the end. Delicious! One of my favorite recipes is Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins! I use this recipe.

    But I lessen the milk and increase the pumpkin and add a whole teaspoon of pumpkin pie spices. Yummy yummy! I think I'm off to make dinner and cookies now! ♥

  2. Just an update, YUM! These are delicious cookies and they taste just like the muffins I linked earlier! I didn't have any milk (it had gone bad, ick!) and I added some pumpkin pie spice, MmmMmm!
