Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter at cool room temperature*
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 ½ cups cake flour**
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips***

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Beat butter and sugar together for about 2 minutes or until smooth.
  • Scrape down bowl.
  • Add egg, pumpkin, vanilla and spices. Continue beating for 2 additional minutes. Batter may look separated.
  • Scrape down bowl again.
  • Add rest of ingredients to bowl, and mix just until flour is incorporated and all ingredients are combined.
  • Using a 1-1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop, place dough about 2-inches onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes.
  • Let cool completely on baking sheet before transferring to plate.

Notes

*Butter should be cool enough that if you poke it, it dents a little. It shouldn't be so soft that it is mushy.
**If you don't have cake flour, mix 2 ¼ c. all-purpose flour and 1/4 c. cornstarch together. Then, sift them together three times before using.
***Feel free to gently press additional chocolate chips onto the cookies before baking.
