Serves 36 | Prep Time | Cook Time 13 to 15

Ingredients

2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 ½ cups sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package (6 ounces) semisweet
chocolate chips or chunks


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.


In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.


In an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.


Add the pumpkin, egg, and vanilla and beat until just blended.


Mix in the dry ingredients, starting on slow and moving up to medium speed.


Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl once during mixing (turn the mixer off first) to ensure complete blending.


Remove the bowl from the mixer stand and use a rubber spatula to gently stir in the chocolate chips.


Drop the batter by heaping tablespoon full onto the baking sheets, with 1 inch spacing between them.


Bake the cookies for 13-15 minutes or until lightly browned.


If necessary, rotate the sheets halfway through baking to ensure even cooking.


Let the cookies cool for a few minutes on the sheets before moving them to wire cooling racks to finish cooling completely.

Notes

These are a delightful twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe. They are almost cake-like.
