Pumpkin Spice Up Your Life

Happy Fall! Eating Halloween candy for like 6 weeks is a favorite Fall activity of mine, but pumpkin spice everything definitely takes the cake (or cookie) this season. I’m sharing this chewy, fluffy chocolate chip pumpkin spice cookie recipe today. Don’t let the long name fool you. This recipe is super easy!


What you’ll need:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter {1 cup}, softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup pumpkin pie mix {I used Libby’s}
  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • nonstick cooking spray or parchment paper

Yield: about 30 cookies


Pre-heat over to 350°F

In a large bowl, beat the butter until smooth.

Combine both sugars and add to the butter, in thirds, until fluffy.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Then add the vanilla and pumpkin pie mix.

In a separate large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, then sift.

Beat the flour mixture into the batter in thirds.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Spray cookie sheets with non-stick spray or line with parchment paper. {I used parchment paper.}

Scoop the cookie dough using a large spoon or ice cream scooper onto the prepared cookie sheets. Give them a little love tap so they don’t fluff up too much on top.

Bake at 350°F for 13-15 minutes, or until the cookies have browned around the edges. I prefer chewy cookies, so I baked them for 13 minutes.

Remove the cookie sheets from the oven and let them rest for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
