These chocolate chip pumpkin cookies are a family recipe. They are a FAMOUS family recipe actually. They are handed down from great grandmas, to my grandma, to my mom and aunts and now to us. Every fall my kids love to gather round and make these cookies.
They are soft and moist, not too spices, not too bland– just enough to make it feel like fall all around you and be completely addicted to a recipe. We love to use milk chocolate chips! However the traditional semi-sweet are great too.
What I love about this recipe is that it makes enough for an army! We love to make them for neighbors, parties, treats for activities. If you half the recipe it will make about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies
Growing up my mom was famous for her pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. All my friends would request them. Our church functions would ask for them. And when I would bring them to my friends and to activities everyone would be giddy with excitement over them. They seriously are the best recipe around.
