Today was one of the worst days ever. I’m not going to talk about. Instead I’m going to talk about cookies.
Fact: Cookies make life better.
There’s something I really love about a plate of cookies. No it doesn’t matter what kind of cookies. I just sorta find them pretty.
I gave these away. The next day I received a few texts telling me they were popular with co-workers. I won’t lie, I was sorta kicking myself for giving them away. As I wrote this post, all I wanted was one of these cookies. That’s what happens when you have a stressful day: you want cookies.
From what I recall, they were a little bit cakey (but less so than your average pumpkin cookie, which always seems more like a muffin top to me) and chewy. I’m pretty sure that means they’re good. Cakey but chewy? Done. I want it again.
Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup white sugar
1/2 brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 cup chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Set aside. Cream together butter, pumpkin puree, sugars and egg yolk. Mix in dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in Chocolate chips.
Form dough into golf ball-sized balls and arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden on the edges. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing from baking sheet.
Put on a plate and make someone’s day that much better.

I made a similar recipe to this last year — a vegan version — and also remember the cookies being very doughy and cakey. I think it’s the pumpkin…? But loved it either way — perfect to pair with a cup of tea.
These definitely turned out more cookie-like than other pumpkin-chocolate chip cookies I’ve had. Usually I feel they turn out like muffin tops, which I’m not a huge fan of.
I’m making these tonight!
Yeah! Do it! Then let me know how they turn out!
Wow!! All of this looks fabulous!! I will be making these soon.
I did like the consistency of these cookies, and they even become less cakey as they cool. However, I found them too sweet and the brown sugar with the pumpkin gave them a date-y flavor, which I don’t mind, but I was not expecting it! Maybe next time with a different mixture of sugars? I also wonder what the technique is for the last 5 dough balls per sheet which got really sticky and thus the baked texture was sort of like a macaroon, not smooth like in your photos.
