  • Transfer the dough to the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes.
  • While the dough chills, preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Once the dough has chilled, scoop 2-tablespoon-sized balls onto the baking sheets, making sure to place them at least 2 inches apart-- these cookies will spread!

  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the cookies are set around the edges and golden brown on the bottom.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the pan-- they will set as they cool.


  • Don't over mix the cookie dough. The flour should be just combined. Over mixing can overdevelop the gluten leading to dense cookies.
  • Don't skip chilling the dough. If you don't chill it the dough will spread all over the cookie sheet when you bake the cookies.
  • Let the pumpkin cookies fully cool before enjoying or storing. They will set as they cool.
Storage: Store chocolate chip pumpkin cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
