TO MAKE THE WORLDS BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP PUMPKIN COOKIES YOU WILL NEED:

HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CHIP PUMPKIN COOKIES
- Always start your batters by mixing your dry ingredients together. PRO TIP: mixing your dry ingredients together allows for your rising agents (like baking soda and powder) to be equally incorporated throughout your entire batter, so all your cookies will rise equally.
- While mixing add in your wet ingredients– these include your eggs, oil, pumpkin and vanilla.
- Mix until batter is smooth and all dry ingredients are blended well. PRO TIP: use a stand mixer with the cookie paddle- it mixes much better, and incorporated air into the batter to help a fluffier smoother cookie. Do you have to use it? no.
- ADD YOUR CHOCOLATE CHIPS! yeah baby. the best part. ALL the chocolate
WHAT CHOCOLATE CHIPS ARE BEST?
For this recipe you really can use whatever is your favorite. If you like decadent dark chocolate or smooth milk chocolate dooo it. My mom always uses semi-sweet while I prefer Ghiradelli milk chocolate. Both pair and any chocolate chips pair perfect with this pumpkin batter.
BAKING PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
On a well greased cookie sheet (or use parchment paper) spoon even scoops of cookie batter. The pumpkin cookies will spread a little and rise a lot so leave room on your cookie sheet for this. I can fit 12 cookies on 1 standard cookie sheet pan.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOUR COOKIES ARE DONE?
Bake your cookies at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes. If they are larger cookies they’ll need to go a few minutes longer. HOW CAN YOU TELL THEY’RE DONE? The center will be nice and firm. You don’t need the cookies to be golden brown. If they are turning brown on the outside they’ll be over-cooked.
