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.
*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.
