When making this Pumpkin Cookie recipe I like to use my stand mixer. While not required, it’s a lot easier to let the machine make the cookie batter than using electric beaters. If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can use handheld electric beaters with the same results.

There’s really nothing complicated about this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip recipe. The only thing to make sure of when making these cookies is to add the flour slowly to the mixture.

No more than 1 cup at a time. Also, make sure you don’t use the beaters when adding the chocolate chips. Use a spatula to gently fold them in.

The batter will be sticky and will probably stick to the cookie scoop or spoon when placing the cookie dough on the baking sheet. I like to spray a little non-stick cooking spray to my cookie scoop to help with that.

    Wow, if you like pumpkin and chocolate this recipe is for you. I changed from semisweet chocolate to milk chocolate because that is what I had on hand. They were delicious. Very moist and very tasty.
