Recipe Review: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

We've made a cookie exchange tradition at the office. Yes, we are a fitness company, but we are also food lovers and don't skimp on the good stuff!

Honestly, I did not feel up to baking cookies this year. I'm SO glad I did though! These tasty little babies came out fantastic.

I stopped at the Dollar Store to pick up some cute holiday Christmas tins for my baking creation. People love food... especially homemade deliciousness like this.

The recipe made 60 cookies!!! I was able to fill all 5 tins, each with a dozen.

I found this recipe on

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups butter (no substitutes), softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars.
  2. Beat in the pumpkin, egg and vanilla.
  3. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.

The cookies turned out to be moist and chewy because of the pumpkin. I give them 4 stars!
