Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 12 minutes Chill Time 30 minutes
Total Time 52 minutes Servings 24 cookies Calories 174kcal
- Large bowl
- Baking Sheet
- 2 cups all-purpose flour 240g
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder Dark
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp allspice
- 1/4 tsp cardamom
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup butter 170g, melted
- 2/3 cup light brown sugar 100g, Packed
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar 100g
- 1/3 cup pumpkin puree strained*
- 1 tsp vanilla extract 5mL
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 150g
- Press the pumpkin puree against a strainer or place it in a double layer of paper towels to blot it. You really want to remove the excess water from the pumpkin so the cookies have a nice chewy texture.
- Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices into a large bowl. Whisk together and set aside.
- Mix the melted butter and sugars together in bowl, add the vanilla then mix in the pumpkin.
- Add the flour mixture in then mix until just combined. Add most of the chocolate chips and fold in to distribute. I like to reserve a handful to place on top of each cookie at the very end but that’s optional. Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes, preferably an hour or two.
- Preheat oven to 350F. Use a triggered ice cream scoop or tablespoon to potion out 1.5-2 inch balls then roll each into a ball with your clean palms.
- Place balls about two inches apart on a parchment paper or silicon-lined baking sheet and place the reserved chips on top. Bake at 350F for about 11 minutes. The cookies will be puffed up and the edges will be set.
- Measure your flour correctly! Adding too much flour to the recipe is the most common mistake. The best, and easiest way to measure flour is by using a scale. If you don’t have one then fluff your flour with a spoon, sprinkle it into your measuring cup, and use a knife to level it off.
- This recipe doubles really easily so you can make a big batch; enjoy half now and freeze the rest for later.
- I packed these cookies will all my favorite spices but feel free to use what you have in the pantry and skip a few if you’re in a rush; they’ll still be delicious!
- Remember to remove excess water from your puree!
- Walnuts or pecans are great in this recipe
